28 Dec Taste Tuscany: Chianti Food and Wine Tour
Embark on an unforgettable culinary adventure through the famous Chianti wine region during our Private Full Day Chianti Food Tour. More than a region dedicated solely to viticulture, part of Chianti’s unique identity lies in its cuisine. Steeped in tradition and rural wisdom, each dish is the result of a heritage that harks back to a bond established between man and terroir centuries ago. Spend the day immersing yourself in incredible views of valleys lined with vineyards, olive groves, and vegetable gardens, making stops to enjoy delectable local food and wine along the way.
The day will begin with your private driver picking you up from your accommodations alongside your expert local guide. Together they will lead you on a delicious journey through the winding hills of Tuscany and each food stop – all carefully selected to ensure you are tasting the best of what the region has to offer.
Your first stop will bring you to a special family-run pastificio that was founded in 1893. Here you will have the distinct opportunity to see how the family has been passionately making pasta from bronze molds for decades. Next, you’ll step back in time while visiting a traditional cheese farm that is a paradise of Tuscan simplicity. Explore the farm while taking a peaceful walk through the grounds, accompanied by your guide, and learn all about the agriculture and processes behind their tasty sheep cheese varieties.
The tour will continue with a visit to the historic village of Greve in Chianti where your guide will lead you to a multigenerational bottega and butcher shop. It is here you will experience a passionate preservation of Chianti food heritage through the flavours and aromas of the bottega’s gourmet organic food products. Sit, relax, and people watch the locals and travellers meandering through the village’s main piazza as you indulge in a glass of wine paired with an exquisite selection of pecorino cheese with traditional mostarda, balsamic vinegar, and salumi.
This custom DFTL bespoke experience comes to a fabulous end with tour and tasting at a cruelty-free and biodynamic winery that will truly take your breath away. Completely organic since 1988, this stunning winery is dedicated not only to the preservation of the region’s viticulture traditions, but also to the maintenance of a balanced ecosystem for the most nourished vines to grow.
