Full day tour to discover the Chianti Classico wine district and the “Manhattan” of the Middle Ages

With this tour we’ll discover the fine wines of Chianti! We will tour the vineyards and wine cellar of farms in the heart of the “Chianti” wine area, receiving an up close look at the production and ageing process of the Chianti wines and also learning about the secret of the extra virgin olive oil making.
This wonderful experience will include wine tasting and the opportunity to buy some of the best Tuscan wines.
We’ll also visit San Gimignano: a small walled medieval hilltop town, known as the Town of Fine Towers, it is famous for its medieval architecture and with its encircling walls forms “an unforgettable skyline”.
I am not going to give you a lecture – unless you want to – I will be informative but I won’t overdo with too many dates and names, I will make your visit fun with anecdotes and legends, you will have time to enjoy a typical local meal, a coffee or an ice cream: I know you are here on holiday and your holiday is meant to be relaxing and fun!
