Wine tasting in Panzano
Volpaia wine tasting and visit
Full day tour with private driver and guide
Come spend a wonderful day of wine tasting in Chianti, visiting local wineries and talking in person to the winemakers. Accompanied by a knowledgeable private guide, and taken care of by your private driver, you will discover the history of the region while tasting the best varieties of Chianti, in two wineries chosen with care for the quality of the experience they will provide.
Learning about wine and life in the vineyards from the words of the winemakers. Merging the culture of food and wine with the view of the gentle slopes of the “Chiantishire” hills. Discovering the history of Chianti, its villages and its precious lands from the words of a charming guide. This is what this full day tour will be about.
This Wine tasting in Chianti tour winds through the beautiful hills of Chianti, where you will have the chance to visit the most beautiful locations of this famous area, known all over the world for its red wines.
We will leave the “cradle of the Renaissance” around 9:00 am, and from there we will head, through the panoramic and very “slow” Chiantigiana road, to the heart of Greve in Chianti, the capital of the Florentine Chianti, whose famous and admired piazza will be the background for the first stop of the day.
After this first part of the visit, we will leave for the “deeper” Chianti, passing through the beautiful village of Panzano in Chianti, where the doors of the first farm will await us wide open. Here we can immerse ourselves in a family-run company that produces excellent wines in a context of great human values. It will be an opportunity to get to know closely the gestures and stories of a family that has dedicated its life to the work of the earth, with the support of love and passion.
Once this tasting of the Chianti classico wines of the area is over, we will take the car back to one of the Sienese Chianti jewels: the medieval village of Volpaia. Here we will stop, delight our palate and fill our eyes with the beauty and uniqueness of the place, and the magnificence of the surrounding nature.
We will not just enjoy a tasty lunch break, we will also proceed to a second visit. This time it will be the turn of a winery that is bound to the historical site of Volpaia. This winemaking history brings us back to the era of the Renaissance, and even before, to the long vicissitudes of clashes and battles between Florence and Siena.
These are the wines we will get to taste at Volpaia winery:
Chianti Classico DOCG, Bianco di Volpaia (when available), Chianti Classico Riserva and Coltassala or Balifico.
Along with the wine, are served samples of pecorino cheese, bruschetta with tomatoes and oil.
After this overdose of pleasure, beauty, and history we will be ready to head back to Florence, where we will say goodbye.
This tour includes the rental of a private van with licensed private driver at your service.
During the months from November to March, the Volpaia wine tasting will be replaced with another similar winery, located in the surroundings.
