Certified sommelier and wine connoisseur, Guido Bandinelli
 

The Chianti area lies between two important cities, Florence and Siena, and it extends from the basin of the river Arno to that of the river Ombrone; it includes in the Valdelsa to the west, while to the east it reaches the Valdarno Superiore.

The Chianti has always been a wine-producing area (there is evidence of viticultural activity right back to Etruscan times - 8th century B.C.), and it is worth visiting both for the unmatched beauty of its natural landscape (inextricably inter-related with the work of man) and for the many villages, castles, and farms spread out  through the whole territory.

Known throughout the world, this area is divided into two parts, the Chianti Fiorentino and the Chianti Senese.

Running through this historic territory is the Via Chiantigiana, which joins Florence and Siena. Off this main route there are innumerable roads (both asphalt and dirt roads) leading to ancient parish churches, castles, quaint villages and wineries.

The beauty of the landscape accompanied by the possibility to visit one or more wineries during these sightseeing tours and to taste some of the best wines and one of the best cuisine in Italy, it will render the visit to this area an unforgettable experience!

All tours are personally guided by a Sommelier and Wine Connoisseur.
  Clients are accepted on a first come-first served basis.
