Great guide, fun drive, amazing vineyards. Defiantly work it! One recommendation, if you just want to leave with one or two bottles of wine/olive oil, I would buy it from the castle vineyard. The last stop doesn’t have the same select and is better suited for larger orders only. The per unit cost of shipping wine back to the US is very expensive, unless you ship back 20+ bottles.

It was a good choice! We had a fantastic time in the countryside. Visiting nice places, being told interesting facts about wine and testing some good Chianti! Meeting point was easy to find and we had a native English speaking guide :) Dinner was also very tasty, even for those with more sofisticated taste. Go for it!
