Wine tasting at the most important Chianti Classico wineries.
An exciting experience in the most important wine production vineyards and their ancient cellars! May include a wonderful lunch with local dishes.
The visit of the estate is usually followed by wine tasting, which often includes extra virgin olive oil on bread and a sample of other products they may produce (such as cheese, salame, etc.) and visit of their cellars.
Many companies come to pick you up in the morning with a private car / mini van with an English-speaking driver and will drop you back at the villa at the end of the day.
