A day spent amongst the vineyards and rolling hills of Tuscany. With 2 wine tastings, an included lunch and town visit to San Gimignano this is a perfect day escape from the bustling city.

Start your day with a tasting of Chianti’s finest wine paired with authentic Italian cheeses and meats in a hillside vineyard. You'll pinch yourself to make sure the rolling hillside views of Tuscany are real. Next, visit the gorgeous town of San Gimignano to devour the world’s best gelato and climb towers with panoramic views under the Tuscan sun. We'll then set off to another local vineyard where you'll finish with a homemade Italian meal of ribollita, lasagna and the most decadent truffle oil you've ever tasted; not to mention, a 7+ glass tasting presented by the ever-charming staff (full disclaimer, you may fall in love with them!) You'll make it home in time for a quick nap before enjoying yet another perfect night in Florence.

One of the major wine regions of Tuscany, the Chianti region boasts some of the world’s most exquisite grapes. Once we arrive at the first winery, Poggio Alloro, we will embark on our included wine tasting and vineyard tour. You will learn of the process of picking, making and bottling of this famous wine. Afterwards, you will have time to sample wine, browse the vineyards and take pictures with the charming backdrop of the Tuscan Hills. 

We will depart the first winery and head to San Gimignano. This charming area is a walled medieval town perched on a hill. Its well-preserved medieval towers can be seen from several kilometers away and have become iconic of the city. You will have time to explore the city. See the city’s fourteen towers, and the Collegiata and St Agostino churches with their works of art from famous renaissance artists such as Filippino Lippi.

Our last stop is a local family owned winery named Tenuta Torciano. We will have a wine tasting of many local wines such as the Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Chianti Classico while enjoying a lunch of typical Tuscan appetizers and homemade lasagna with truffle oil. You will learn the proper way to hold the wine glass, smell the bouquet and taste in the way of sommeliers. After lunch, you will have a chance to purchase bottles of wine.

We will then depart Tenuta Torciano for return back to Florence in the later afternoon.
