During the Charm of Chianti Wine tour you will explore the flavor of one of the most famous wines in the world which is closely linked to the millenary history of its territory and of its traditions dating back to ancestral times, before the foundations of ancient Rome.
You will cross the sunny valleys, enclosed between the hills where the vineyards hide among the oak woods and the silver-colored olive groves. The narrow country roads, flanked by stone walls, will bring you close to the monasteries, surrounded by the tall dark cypresses that, like sentinels, are protecting the slow passage of time. You will see the ancient country houses and the villas of the Florentine nobles who where used to come to rest in the area.
You will stop to visit Greve in Chianti, perhaps the most famous village in the area, where you can walk in the square surrounded by the arches of the porches where the shops of the artisans, the butchers, the cafes offering gelato overlook.

Soon after you will visit the first farmhouse boutique high quality winery where you will be introduced to the Chianti Classico wine making process, about the different approaches and techniques, according to the rules that have guaranteed the quality of its production for more than 300 years and will learn about the millenary olive oil tradition.
