If you'd like to try a typical Tuscan home cooked meal, this is the tour for you. While tasting the wines at one of Chiant's smallest family estates, we'll sample genuine Tuscan home cooking. Your meal will be prepared by the winery owner's wife who isn't a chef, "just" a great cook in the traditional housewife sense. As an added bonus they produce excellent Chianti and Super Tuscan wines, and tasting them together with your meal will be a joy for your taste buds. I'm sure this will be one of the best meals of your Italian holiday.

We also visit a somewhat larger family winery (the one from my wine lover's tour) for a second tasting of Chianti and Super Tuscan wines.

As touring with me  is also about the stunning Tuscan countryside, our day will include a scenic safari with numerous stops for your holiday photos. 

09.15am: Our Tuscany tour starts as we leave your accommodation for the gorgeous countryside.  The drive is leisurely and we'll make a number of stops for photos. I've carefully chosen one of my favorite itineraries, in order to give you the best scenery Chianti has to offer. We travel well away from main roads through the heart of the Chianti hills, where vineyards, olive orchards and woodland provide one of the most iconic regions of the world.

About mid day we arrive at our family winery where we'll have a guided tour of the estate, and enjoy the personal feel only a family winery can give. The winery is in fact one of Chianti's smaller estates, but their wines are enjoying a lot of deserved success. We then proceed to taste their highly rated Chianti & Super Tuscan wines, while sitting down to a delightful lunch prepared on the estate. I assure you it will be one of the best meals of your holiday, so have a light breakfast and forget your diet. Last but not least, we dine in gorgeous surroundings where the views are everything you expect from Tuscany.

We then continue our day of touring the Tuscan countryside, again making stops to contemplate the scenery and take a photo or two. We reach our second winery of the day where we'll taste a different style of Chianti, sometimes defined as "International." This means a greater use of barrel ageing and Merlot and Cabernet grape varieties. Which is best? Only you can decide, it's purely a question of individual taste. Chianti has changed greatly over the last thirty years, smoother and more refined it regularly obtains high scores from international reviewers, while maintaining its dry character for excellent pairing with hearty food.

After our wine tastings we'll visit the tiny town of Greve in Chianti. Here it's nice to walk the arcaded sidewalks, browsing the shops which specialize in inexpensive souvenirs. For those who like cold cuts, the Falorni butcher's shop is a must.

Our wine tour in Tuscany ends here, and we set off on a relaxed 
return journey  where you can sleep off the pleasures of the day.

04.15pm: Drop off at your hotel.

Duration: approx seven hours door to door.
