One of the major wine regions of Tuscany, the Chianti reagion 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 boquet and taste in the way of sommeliers. After having a chance to purcase wine we will depart Tenuta Torciano for San Gimignano.
