Chianti & San Gimignano Wine Tour

Red and White wines in a full-day wine tour from Florence

San Gimignano wine tours from Florence

 

Maximum of 8 people per guide

Tuscany is a region with strong sun and dry summers so most wine growing regions in there are able to make mainly red wines. However, there is is a small place in Chianti where vintners produce a great white wine as well.
This region is named San Gimignano and this wine tour fits all your expectations if you love white wines more than reds.

San Gimignano is a small wine region which stands between Florence and Siena, and the grape that reigns is the age-old Vernaccia, native to the region and indigenous of Tuscany.

This tour departs from the city of Florence and stops in an organic winery to taste the Chianti Classico and the famous Super Tuscan wines. After a guided wine tasting with some lovely views over the region we'll be able to sample the fruit of the winemaking, so typically 4 wines will be served up.

We will continue to the next winery in San Gimignano where we will see the cellars and enjoy another wine tasting with lunch, pairing the different wines with delicious Tuscan foods.

After our second winery, it will be time to stroll in the gorgeous hilltop town of San Gimignano so you can enjoy the town, the history, and lovely little stores before we return back to Florence.

This is an indigenous white grape of Tuscany, that landed in this part of Italy 3.000 years ago.
