ALL ABOUT OUR PRIVATE WINE TOUR

We arrange a three-hour wine tour for your party to one very beautiful winery located about 30 minutes from Florence downtown. It belongs to a historical estate in a Medicean villa with a charming underground cellar in the Montalbano wine district.

Our English speaking tour guide meets you at an agreed meeting point or directly at your property or hotel (please, see transportation box below for further details) and accompanies you to a charming wine estate in the Montalbano district, close to Vinci - namely the town of Leonardo, the world famous Italian genius.

The visit starts with an introduction to a spectacular 16th century Medicean villa where the winery has its premises. It is a charming historical chalet that the Medici used as a hunting mansion. The basement of the villa hosts a fascinating historical cellar which was wisely restored and turned into a sort of museum of old winemaking techniques and instruments. At the end of the visit, the best wines of the property are served together with some snacks in the tasting room of the property.
You can taste a Chianti and a Chianti Riserva as well as some excellent IGTs. With a little surcharge a buffet lunch can be added to this program.

Our wine tour to the hills around Florence takes around 3 hours and allows you to taste at least 3 different wines.
