Private Tour of the Chianti Region

Starting from EUR €97 per person

Duration: 8 hours
Commences: Siena, Tuscany

Introduction:

Visit wineries and castles in one of the most beautiful areas in Tuscany - full of history and art. The Chianti is a particularly beautiful, exceptionally fertile and hilly area of Tuscany that is renowned for its wine appellation, one of the oldest in Europe. For over 500 years large and small estates have used the southern slopes for the production of this excellent wine. The tour begins with a visit to the Brolio Castle, an imposing example of Italian Renaissance fortress architecture, which today is the center of one of the finest Chianti wine productions. It will include a visit to the exemplary wine cellars where it is said the formula for present day production of Chianti Classico wine was developed.

From Brolio Castle proceed to another exclusive wine producer and participate in a tasting. This will be followed by lunch (at own expense) in a Tuscan trattoria where traditional dishes are the fare of the day. The afternoon itinerary journeys through more of the Chianti region's luxurious landscape to the medieval town of Radda, perched high on a hill between the Pesa and Arbia River Valleys. Two exceptional wine stores in Radda provide excellent opportunities for the wine connoisseur as well as the novice. On the way back stop in a ceramics studio where centuries old throwing and coil construction methods are still being used as well as glazes and pictorial motifs that date back to the Renaissance.
