We will spend the entire day discovering the Chianti region for an unforgettable wine experience!
First, we will drive to Panzano in Chianti, where we will visit a small organic farm in the heart of the Chianti region. We will visit the vineyards, the cellars ending with a tasting of 4/5 organic wines produced in the farm accompanied by Tuscan bread with extra vergin olive oil and a mix of Tuscan cold cuts.
Then, still in Panzano your Driverguide will take you in a wine bar, where all the products are produced within an area of max 30 km. for a wine tasting and olive oil tasting, balsamic vinegar, chocolate and more. Pay attention as it is not only a simple wine tasting, but a really and truly enjoyable experience with an odd and charismatic host!
Next, we will move to Greve in Chianti, that is considered the “capital” of the Chianti Classico. The area around this small and characteristic village, is where the Chianti Classico Gallo Nero is produced. Greve is also the hometown of Giovanni Verrazzano, the explorer of New York Bay. We will visit the famous Piazza Matteotti, called the Mercatale, with its unique triangular shape, the shops, the restaurants and the ancient butcher’s shop Falorni (since 1806). The Mercatale is in the heart of the town and surrounded by many colourful houses with bright colours, at its centre the statue of G. Verrazzano.
Lunch à la carte is provided in a restaurant with great local food in the center of Greve.
Then, we continue the tour with the last magical wine experience of the day.
We will drive to a charming winery located in San Donato in Poggio, the heart of the Chianti Classico area, where we will have an exclusive guided tour around the estate, in its vineyards and in the wine-cellar, to understand the complexity of the methods involved in obtaining a high-quality wine, from the wine-growing to the final product.
At the end of the tour, a tasting of a selection of excellent and fine wines combined with some local products famous for its simplicity, genuine and traditional ingredients and delicious flavors.
