Explore the beautiful wine region of Chianti on a half-day scenic tour from Siena, and enjoy a Tuscan landscape of gently rolling hills and vineyards, studded with cypress trees. Taste superb Chianti wines and Tuscan products. Visit the beautiful region of Chianti with us and immerse yourselves in the picturesque Tuscan scenery that you have always imagined. The beautiful ruby-red colour and the characteristic bouquet with scents of violet are the special features that reveal the identity of one of the most famous wines in the world: Chianti. This wine results from the wise blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and originates from the hilly area from which it draws its name. We will lead you to the discovery of the breathtaking, uncontaminated landscapes that have been cradling the Chianti vineyards for centuries, presenting you a harmony of colours that can only be found in the hills of this region. The sounds, scents and flavours of this land will capture your senses through a unique experience that you will live, relish and comprehend by visiting ancient churches, medieval castles and small villages where the rhythm of life remains unaltered over time. The tour continues with a visit to a charming wine estate. Here you'll have the chance to admire the famous Castle of Brolio (outside visit) and you'll take a guided tour of the beautiful castle gardens. Once the tour of the garden has ended, you'll enjoy a wine tasting paired with some typical food. We then proceed to another winery, in the middle of Chianti Classico Area, where you’ll have a second wine tasting as well as extra virgin olive oil, before returning to Siena. Operated win no more than 8 participants, this small-group tour has a duration of 5 hours. A return to Siena is planned for around 7:00 pm.
