Carefully designed to offer an all-round immersive Chianti wine experience. Our signature Tuscany Wine and Olive Oil Trail Tour leads you down country roads and vineyards, through the cellars and straight under the labels and into the bottles of one of the world's most exceptional wines: Chianti!

Enjoy the exclusive privileges of exploring Chianti and Chianti Classico in a small group, aboard a minivan, with the expert guidance of a sommelier throughout your tour. 
Renowned worldwide for its precious ruby-red blends the Chianti hillside is quite unique: a sea of softly rolling hills dotted by swaying cypresses, olive groves and golden farmhouses and a myriad of extensive vineyards. This is the land of the black rooster - il Gallo Nero - which you can see defiantly looking out of all the signs along the countryside roads and labels, the land where back in 1872 the ideal percentage of different grapes (Sangiovese, Canaiolo and others) used to make the area's namesake wine was discovered.

Explore the marvelous realm of wine in its very kingdom, learn about the history, the peculiar characteristics, the different tastes and aromas.
