Take in stunning views of the Italian countryside as you drive past olive groves, cypress trees and vineyards bursting with juicy grapes before arriving in the Tuscan town of Greve. Head first to the town’s castle and wine estate, and enjoy a guided tour of the reception rooms, the garden and the historic cellars where barrels of Chianti Classico lie slowly maturing. After the visit, enjoy a tasting session of delicious wines such as Chianti Classico and Chianti Reserve accompanied by a selection of traditional regional snacks.
Head into Greve and soak up the atmosphere in the town’s historic square. Admire the traditional architecture and charming shops selling regional produce, and enjoy a little free time to explore at your leisure.
Continue on to Castellina in Chianti, an ancient hamlet set high on a hillside between rolling vineyards and olive groves. Take in beautiful views out over the rolling vineyards below and enjoy free time to wander at your leisure.
Travel on to San Donato in Poggio — an ancient village nestled in the rolling Tuscan hills — and sit down to your evening meal in a local tavern. Enjoy regional specialities perfectly complemented by excellent Chianti wine, and experience first-hand a traditional dining experience for which the Italians are famous. (Dinner will be held in the open, weather permitting, so do bring suitable clothing.) Upgrade to enjoy a delicious bistecca alla Fiorentina — a rich, flavorsome Florentine T-bone steak simply dressed with olive oil, rosemary and salt, and widely considered to be the most famous Tuscan meat dish of all!
When it’s time to leave San Donato in Poggio behind, hop back aboard your coach for the 40-minute drive back to Florence where your tour will come to an end.
Please note: There is no WC on the coach

Another fantastic day in Italy. Not crazy about bus rides - motor coach - but I wouldn't want to attempt driving my self. We visited two wineries whose approach to the tour was very different. The first more informative if you are really interested in the making of the wine and the second more fun. The dinner afterwards was fantastic but be prepared to do some uphill walking. Again, would have loved more time in the small villages. I think the joist of this trip has been that you get a wonderful taste and want to stay for another monthOur guide, Barbara, greatest.

Guide was fantastic. Wine tasting was excellent and educational. And the dinner was excellent. All in all very good value for the money!
Only down side - the cork on the Chianti Classico that we got from the vineyard was so dry it crumbled as we were opening. Not the tour company issue but maybe you could provide feedback to the vineyard.
