The Winetasting & Castle Tour of Chianti with Tuscan Trip is a full day excursion in the Chianti Classico subregion of Chianti. We’ll enjoy a scenic drive through the beautiful countryside with wide panoramic landscapes, stop in charming medieval villages with castles, and visits to Chianti wineries for wine tastings.
At one of our stops we will visit a castle estate and producer of Chianti wine (either Castello di Meleto or Castello di Brolio). We’ll tour the grounds of the estate and be able to taste some of the wine they bottle. Our tour will also include a stop for lunch at another winery, complete with a tasting of their wine, and a tour of the vineyard and cellars.
By the end of our excursion you will have learned about the winemaking process, toured inside available sections of a castle from the middle ages, tasted a variety of Chianti wines at three different tasting locations, enjoyed local foods, and shared stories with a gracious and friendly guide.
