Chianti Rufina historic cellars

Small-group wine tour of 2 Chianti estates housed in a Medieval castle and a Renaissance villa.

Castle and Chianti wine tour from Florence

Wine Tour Description

Becoming passionate about Chianti is not the least bit difficult once you visit the area. It's one of the most timeless and unspoiled places in Italy. Hilly landscape of vines, olive groves, stately cypress trees, wooded areas, old farmhouses, and lordly castles. 

This tour takes you through the Chianti Rufina, one of the smallest sub-wine zones of Chianti which is famous for the longevity of its wines. Here Sangiovese finds all the mineral components to produce wines of great body and elegance.

The tour will take you to discover the Castello del Trebbio which became known for the Pazzi Conspiracy against Lorenzo the Magnificent. Today the castle is the seat of one of the most prestigious wineries in the area. In the afternoon we will visit a renaissance villa, home of the Gondi Noble family who was bankers in Florence at the time of the Medici.
