2) Chianti wine tour
The tour starts in the morning from your accommodation.
We like to couple a farm house winery (where you usually can taste also oil) with an ancient castle winery, as to let you see different kinds of wine wineries.
Visits usually start with a panoramic view of the vineyards, passing by the vat room, where the process of de-stemming the grapes and vinification is passionately explained by an expert wine guide.
Then, you visit the cellars, where wine ages in the oak barrels, and, some times, the bottling rooms, where the bottled wine reaches full refinement.
Then, you may decide to go for a walk in Radda in Chianti, where making typical food shopping or simply walking along the picturesque stone roads.
Lunch is always a good moment to understand, together with your wine and gourmet guide, how to couple the right wine with a meal. This is why we always suggest typical osterias or small trattorias, where owners take care of guests and let them take all the time to enjoy this special moment.
After lunch you leave again for another winery, passing by country roads, vineyards and hilltop ancient castles.
A wine tour usually ends in the afternoon, at about 5,00-6,00 p.m.
