Villa le Corti

Our first stop of the day is at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here we taste three wines paired with cured meats and two olive oils but first, there’s a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa.

Poggio Torselli

We go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on our way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, this one is smaller and less known though does have two award winning wines which you will taste as you find out how ancient tradition and innovation have been combined to create them.

Angy did a fantastic job guiding us through the day, filled with amazing views, local food and wine. I highly recommend this experience, it was a highlight of my trip.

If you’re hesitant on booking this trip, just book it! Alessandro was an incredible guide and had extensive knowledge on the Tuscany region. If you’re worried about the long day, I promise, it did not feel long at all - the perfect amount of stops with plenty of time to enjoy each winery. Great opportunity to meet new people as well, we had a great tour group that made the experience even more fun. Beautiful wineries, great food and even better wine.

We had a fantastic time on our Chianti safari tour with our guide Lavi and driver Giuseppe! The different wineries we toured were all excellent with amazing wines, olive oils and other foods to sample. Lavi was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and more than willing to answer all of our questions. This was an amazing experience and definitely one we would recommend to friends and family!

My husband and I absolutely LOVED this tour! Lavi (our guide) was brilliant- really knowledgeable and funny without any wine-snobbery! She was warm and welcoming and made it interesting to learn about the process of wine and olive oil production, the history of the region and the process of wine tasting! The food was delicious and the measures generous without being too much! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Gloria was the best tour guide, very friendly and informative. Sergio was an excellent driver and I can even imagine trying to get to this beautiful countryside of Florence without the large 4x4 vehicle he drove. The wineries were all amazing and the views were beautiful. We had an excellent lunch and the tastings were fun and informative. A definite must do tour if you are in Florence.

Had a great time on this day trip. Angela was an excellent tour guide. The best way to enjoy a wine tour in Italy is with somebody else taking care of the driving for you!

This is a must-do while in Florence! We toured 4 countries and this was by far an outstanding excursion. You will be treated by Gloria, Nando and the rest of the amazing team for a full day adventure with the most stunning sights and incredible wineries. I would do this over again, we couldn't have had more fun. Totally worth the time and cost.
