Winter wine tour in Chianti

Discover the beautiful colors of Chianti in winter and visit two wineries in the Tuscan countryside.

Chianti wine tours

 

Wintertime small-group Chianti tour in a nutshell

In winter, the indigenous vines such as Sangiovese or Colorino tinge the Chianti countryside with a pleasant palette of warm hues ranging from yellow to red. There may be some rainy spells, but temperatures are never too low and with sparser foliage, a walk along the country paths reveals otherwise hidden corners of this beautiful land.

 

Wine tour destination

Our knowledgeable English-speaking guide takes you to visit two very different Chianti wineries: the first is a small organic family business which produces small quantities of very high-quality wines; the second one is a high-rated cellar that is present in all the major international wine guides.

 

Tuscan wine and olive oil tastings

The winery owners will proudly lead you on a guided tasting of their Chianti Classico DOCG, Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, and Super Tuscan IGT wines. Winter is also the season of freshly pressed olive oil, so you will have the opportunity to enjoy some Extra Virgin Olive Oil under the guidance of an oil expert.

 

Recommended for...

This tour is designed for red wine lovers and takes you on a discovery tour of two very special cellars, hand-picked for you.

 

Winter in Chianti wine tour highlights

November is when wineries complete the wine fermentation process, and there's always a lot of activity in the cellars; in December there is Christmas partying, while in January and February you can enjoy the tranquility of the small medieval villages.

Lunch is in a family restaurant in the Chianti countryside where you will sample typical dishes of Tuscany such as bruschetta, meats, cheese and various types of pasta or vegetable soup.

 

Book in advance!

The tour runs daily except Sunday between November and March with minimum 2 participants. This is technically low season; but since fewer programmes are available, the tour often sells out: we suggest booking well in advance for your desired dates.
