Description :

Our harvest tour in Tuscany takes you through some of the most magnificent wine territory in Tuscany. There are dozens of different varieties of Tuscan wines you will sample during the course of the tour including the Super Tuscan, Brunello and Nobile varieties.  The tour starts and ends in Florence and includes accommodations in delightful, superior four star hotels throughout in addition to dozens of wine tastings in Florence, Chianti, and Val D'Orcia which we set up for you in advance.

The first three nights of the tour are spent in Florence where you will stay right in the historical center which is quite literally an open air museum filled with many famous sculptures by Michelangelo and countless other Florentine masters.  In Florence you can choose to visit the Accademmia or Uffizi galleries, the Boboli gardens, Santa Croce and Giotto's famous bell tower.

In Florence you will pick up your rental car at a location very close to your hotel, and you will drive out of Florence into Chianti where you will venture towards Greve in Chianti en-route to Castellina in Chianti where you will spend the next three nights at the spectacular Villa Casalecchi.  

En-route you will stop at the Fattoria Montagliari where you will get a full tour of their winery and sample their balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Vinsanto and many other delicacies this family-run farm is known for. Once you check in at the hotel you can decide to return if you so choose for a delicious dinner or venture into the town of Castellina in Chianti which has some of the very best Tuscan restaurants in the region. 

After three spectacular days in the Chianti region with fantastic winery visits and taking in the Chianti hamlets like San Gimignano, Radda in Chianti and Montereggioni, you will make your way into Southern Tuscany and experience what we believe is one of the most beautiful regions in all of Italy, Val D'Orcia where you will stay near the town of Montepulciano, famous for its wine, leather goods and Tuscan craftsmanship.
