The secrets of Chianti wine making

Meet Riccardo Casamonti, winemaker, and ask everything you ever wanted to know about wine.

Meet the Winemaker Riccardo Casamonti

 

Chianti boutique winery tour in a nutshell

Definitely not your average mass-market wine tour! This private day tour from Florence is an exclusive opportunity to meet the owner of a boutique Chianti winery and ask him everything you've always wanted to know about vines, wines, and wine making.

 

Wine tour destination

This authentic experience in a boutique winery normally not open to the public is one of our most exclusive tours in the Chianti wine region, made possible by our special connections with the Tuscan wine makers. Stroll through the estate vineyards with the winemakers, learn about the old farming and viticulture techniques, and the traditional wine-making process.

 

Tuscan wine tastings

Taste organic wines that you can hardly find elsewhere! This is a true Tuscan wine experience intended to give you an exclusive visit of a unique small winery run by a single vigneron who created a small production reality in the heart of Chianti, with the aim of reviving forgotten wines and vines such as Foglia Tonda, Mammolo, and Canaiolo Pratese.

 

This tour is recommended for...

This tour is specially designed for private parties who want to get a thorough understanding of the wine they are tasting, and an appreciation for the traditions behind it.

Both wine connoisseurs and inquisitive novices will find this behind-the-scenes opportunity equally rewarding, and bring home a deeper understanding of any glass of wine they will taste hereafter.

 

Boutique winery tour highlights

Visiting the vineyards provides the perfect setting to learn about grape varieties, soils, and traditional growing methods.

While showing us around the family-run winery and its cellars, the father-and-son team who tend to the vines will be happy to share their knowledge and passion for wine.

Finally, they will treat us to a delicious home-made lunch accompanied with a tasting of the fruits of their labors.
