Based in the beautiful and historic city of Florence, this Tuscany wine tour allows you to stay in the birthplace of the Italian renaissance and discover the celebrated wines that makes Tuscany such a sought-after holiday destination amongst wine lovers. After settling into your chosen hotel on day one, we would be pleased to recommend a restaurant and reserve you a table for dinner if required.
On day two, meet your English-speaking specialist wine guide at a central departure point in Florence and enjoy a day of tasting in the stunning Chianti vineyards. There will be a maximum of eight guests on the tour and the focus of the day will be the the world-famous Super Tuscan wines.
During the course of the day, you will be welcomed as the guests of three highly-regarded Super Tuscan wineries, where your guide will show you the fascinating wine-making process from vine to bottle. At each estate, you will taste a variety of Tuscany wines, discovering the secrets of the Super Tuscan wine-makers. The traditional lunch served at one of the wineries will be a true highlight of your holiday. Here, you will taste examples of dishes that have made Tuscany such a well-loved gastronomic capital and of course, premium wines will complement the cuisine. You will be taken back to Florence at the end of the day.
For those staying an extra day, you will be taken on a scenic guided tour on the Arno river, where you will be able to take in breathtaking views of Florence’s main sights, such as the Pontevecchio and the mysterious Vasari corridor. You will be transported on one of only four remaining authentic barchetto wooden boats- a unique experience! We will also arrange a tutored tasting session of four wines with local olive oil and Bruschette with tomatoes in the city centre. In the evening, a five course dinner with wines, water and coffee will be served in an intimate Michelin-starred restaurant in a unique dining location- the city’s oldest tower.

It was one of our very best trips and I know for sure that it would not have come about if you hadn't taken all that time through countless e-mails to help me figure out the where and when. So, thank you, thank you Jenna and your compatriots.
