Looking for a Chianti wine tour with a difference? Travel from Florence for an evening in the countryside of Tuscany, where you’ll visit a boutique winery for an evening of wonderful local wine and food. Not to mention you'll learn the Italian wine-making process, tour the cellars, and even create your own custom bottle to take home! With an exquisite five-course dinner, perfect wine pairings, and an expert sommelier guide, it’s the ideal evening in Italy’s favorite wine region.

  • Wine-making experience and gourmet dinner in Tuscany
  • Comfortable return transportation from Florence
  • Learn the science and wine and olive oil making
  • Discover Tuscan food and wine with an expert sommelier
  • Five course dinner with the finest local ingredients
  • Create your own blend of Tuscan wine
  • Your own custom label as a perfect souvenir
  • The ultimate Tuscan food and wine experience!

After meeting your group near Piazza Mentana in central Florence, you'll hop aboard a luxury minivan for a journey into the Tuscan countryside. Once you reach the boutique Chianti winery you'll take a tour of the cellars and learn all about the production of wine and olive oil from an expert sommelier, with plenty of tastings of course! You'll also get the unique experience of blending your own wine with the guidance of your host, and you can take your custom bottle with you to enjoy at home.

Finally, it's time for dinner...and what a dinner! The five course menu will showcase the best of Tuscan ingredients, from cured meats and cheeses to classic regional meals. Paired with more delicious wine (of course,) it's the perfect way to end your Tuscan evening before heading back to Florence.

Depart From Central Florence

Your evening begins just off Ponte Vecchio in the heart of Florence. Meet your English-speaking driver who will bring you through Tuscany to the night's event, along with a small group of no more than 8 wine-loving travelers. As you drive through the Tuscan hillsides, take in the beauty of the farms and vineyards that produce the types of wines and olive oils you'll experience later on.

Tuscan Wine-Making Experience at a Boutique Winery

Upon arrival to the renowned local winery, you'll meet your professional sommelier guide for a tour of the winery's beautiful grounds and intricate cellars. Learn the history of the precious bottles lining the walls and the barrels aging the next batches of wonderful Chianti.

Next, it's time to get interactive as you learn the science of wine making and olive oil production. Through these demonstrations and tastings, you'll develop an expert palate and understanding of the finest Tuscan products.

Bring Home a Bottle of Your Own Personal Label

A true highlight of the evening is creating your own blend of Tuscan red wine. Learn about the value of the Sangiovese grape and how the super Tuscan blend was developed. With your newfound knowledge, you can mix a unique wine blend that perfectly suits your taste buds.

Once you've decided the measurements of your blend, it will be bottled for you to bring back home. Adorned by a personalized label, it's a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

Gourmet Farm to Table Dinner with Five Paired Wines

After wine making, sit down for a VIP farm-to-table dinner with expertly paired wines. Enjoy Tuscan classics prepared with the best local ingredients. Each course is paired with a delicious wine, including a traditional Tuscan sweet wine with dessert. Salut!

We had a group of 7 people ages ranged from 14-80. Everyone had the best time. Learning about the olive oil process was so interesting as well as how they make wine. The dinner afterwards was absolutely delicious. We couldn’t have had a better time. Our tour guide was outstanding as well.
