In the morning we will reach the Chianti Classico area driving through beautiful narrow country roads.
Our fist stop will be at one of the most prestigious Chianti Castles and wine estate.
In the Middle Age all the 'Chianti' area was covered with many fortified settlements.
These castles were fiefs of the many different local lords, like the counts Guidi, the Trebbiesi, the 'da Monte Rinaldi'.
Since the 1201, after the peace of Fonterutoli, Florence starts to wield its power on the region. At the beginning of the
14th century this territory was organized in 'Terzieri' united in the new born 'Chianti League'.
The expert English speaking guide will explain you all about the Castle history and the wine making process from the vine growing to the bottle ageing.
At the end of the Castle tour you will taste and enjoy all the estate production as wines, oil and much more.
For lunch we will reserve for you a great meal in a local "not turisty" restaurant.
We have selected for our guests some of the best restaurants of the region, where you will appreciate the tasty and gourmet Tuscany dishes.
