Hey you, wine lovers out there! Don’t you feel like exploring the most iconic wine region of the world through its less known and still top-notch country-chic producers? Here we are!

  • Visit to the Verrazzano winery and wine tasting with 3 different wines (English)
  • Full lunch in Verrazzano Castle Restaurant
  • Visit to the Capannelle winery (English)
  • Everything not mentioned in inclusions

12:00 pm – Meet the local guide at Castello di Verrazzano in Greve In Chianti to first of all discover their ancient history and the family landmarks: Giovanni da Verrazzano, the navigator and discoverer of the bay of New York and of most of the East coast of modern U.S., was born here in 1485!
After visiting both the vineyards and the 16th-century cellars, you’ll be treated to a fabulous lunch, a showcase of Tuscan food, paired with a selection of the estate’s finest offerings, including not only the Supertuscans but also vinsanto and grappa: PDO Tuscan ham, wild boar salami, head cheese, finocchiona (a typical salami flavoured with fennel seeds), crostino with lard, homemade EVO oil, pecorino (sheep cheese), pasta with tomato sauce, grilled sausages and rosticciana (pork ribs) or roast pork loin with side dishes from the garden, farm cake and – goes without saying – cantuccini and a reinvigorating italian espresso.

03:00 pm – Proceed to Gaiole, the true homeland of Chianti Classico, as you continue your Chianti wine tour.

03:45 pm – Guided tour of Capannelle, a high-profile wine making estate dating back to 1974 and since then boasting noticeable partnerships such as Avignonesi, Enoteca Pinchiorri, Orient Express Hotels and Michelin. The final tasting will make the happy ending to this fab day, with unforgettable Chiantis and a remarkable Chardonnay.

05:15 pm – End of the activities and back to Florence / to your next destination.

Please Note:

  • Program: the described program may undergo minor changes in the timings and in the selection among the wine makers according to availability.
  • Pick-ups: If you add the car+driver supplement from a specific town, you will be picked up at your hotel downtown. If out of town, you could be asked to pay a further supplement.
  • Guide: this tour does not include any private guide following you up along the itinerary: the visit is run directly by the producer at fixed times and there could be other guests attending.
  • Live production: being artisanal and not industrial products, the working cycle is not repeated every day at the same time, so it is not guaranteed to see craftsmen at work at each site (for example: Wine and Vinegar making, Prosciutto di Parma, Culatello).
  • Our drivers are NOT driver-guides, since this kind of professional profile is forbidden by the Italian law.
