This tour lasts approximately 9 hours.
A trip to the Chianti area is a unique experience that will engage all
your senses. Walk amongst the orderly vines and silvery olive groves,
breathe the perfume of fermentation in the cellars, and then taste the
wine and you will understand why Chianti is so famous all over the world.
Greve in Chianti
After a mere 45 minutes along the highway you will find yourself on the Chianti Wine Road, crossing through the picturesque, rolling hills on your way to the quaint village of Greve in Chianti. In the main piazza with its lovely porticoes you will find an array of shops and boutiques.
History buffs will note the monument to Giovanni da Verrazzano, the explorer of the Atlantic coast of North America who discovered, among other things, the Hudson River.
The wineries are a hop, skip and a jump from Greve. An English speaking host will take you on a tour of the magnificent grounds, the historic buildings and, of course, the cellars. Enjoy an entertaining talk about the history of the estate and how the wine is made and then, most importantly, taste some!
MONDAY THRU FRIDAY, the winery tour and tasting takes place at Verrazzano Castle.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, the winery tour and tasting takes place at Vignamaggio.
Please write to us for descriptions and prices of the tasting options.
