Today's Tour of Tuscany will take us to visit the imposing Brolio Castle, one of the biggest military castles of the middle ages. Now more peaceful, it boasts some of the most stunning views in Chianti. The estate can also claim without fear of contradiction, to be the inventors of modern Chianti wine. We'll visit the gardens, and ramparts. There is also a small museum which doesn't take appointments, but is usually open. If so, we'll visit this too. Then after all this hard work, a tasting of the estate's wines would be just what the doctor ordered. We'll then drive leisurely through the Tuscan countryside, on a snapshot photo safari of the Chianti landscapes, (all photos on this site are from my tours).

9.30 am. Our Tuscan wine tour starts with a slow drive through the Chianti countryside, and we'll stop in the most picturesque places for photos. We'll also visit the delightful town of Greve in Chianti. Here it's nice to sit and relax with a drink, and maybe do some people watching. You may like to stroll the arcaded sidewalks and browse the shops which specialize in inexpensive souvenirs. If you're interested in genuine Italian leather bags belts and wallets, then a visit to a local factory who also produce for a top designer might be of interest. Just let me know.

Lunch is at your leisure. If you require I can suggest some great alternatives; anything from ;"a la carte" to a simple sandwich. (Lunch not included in final fee).

After lunch we arrive at the imposing Brolio Castle, and start our visit with a walk around the geometric fantasies of the Italian Gardens. The view from the castle walls is magnificent, and just this is worth the visit, and we will see how during the medieval wars it was easy to keep an eye on the invading Sienese armies. 

The castle also has a small museum that holds guided tours every hour, but they don't take reservations. We've managed to see it on most tours, but I can't guarantee anything. If all goes well we'll see the medieval arms belonging to the Castle's belligerent past. We'll also see more peaceful instruments used by baron Bettino Ricasoli for his wine making experiments. Baron Bettino, was the first person to define the Chianti wine making disciplinary in 1871 and many of his concepts are still in use to the present day.

What better at this point than to try the wine of this history making estate. The vineyards are some of the largest in the Chianti region and the estate produces a wide variety of wines. The amiable staff will give you a description of the estate's production and you'll be able to choose freely from four wines including: Chianti, Chianti Reserve and Super Tuscan.

At about about 4:30pm we end our day of touring in Tuscany, and head back to our accommodation.
