Check-in and departure point

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Via San Piero di Sotto 1 c/o Villa le Corti, 50026, San Casciano in Val di Pesa Italy

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.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Località Rignana, 50022 Greve in Chianti FI, Italy

Now buckle-up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make our way to a typical Tuscan winery restaurant with stunning views. Here is where we will really get your taste buds tingling with delicious food and wine. You will not want to leave!

Stop At: Poggio Torselli, Via Scopeti 10, 50026, San Casciano in Val di Pesa Italy

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.

This was our second wine tour in Tuscany and it was by far my favorite! Alex was our guide, and he was so knowledgeable about the process of wine making and all of the vineyards we visited. The vehicle was very cool to ride in, but be aware that the roads are very curved and there are many hills ...

Our guide Alex was fabulous. He was insightful and informative, entertaining and personable. We would highly recommend using Walkabout tours.
