Tuscany's Wine Regions
We run limo tours to wineries throughout Tuscany. In particular, we suggest visiting the Chianti Classico, the Brunello di Montalcino and the Bolgheri areas.
Wine was made throughout central Italy for at least 2500 years. The Etruscans, well before the Ancient Romans, were already winemakers in the 6th Century BC.
The production of wine has carried on until the present day, and is still a driving force of the local economy.
Note: Although every winery is unique, winery visits tend to follow a few basic patterns. The typical duration is at least 1 hr . The winery visit usually comprises: a) Guided tour of the estate & cellars b) Description of wine making process c) Tasting of the locally produced wines. The visit is carried out in English by the local winery staff. The winery will charge a fee (typically around €15-€35 per person although some upscale private visits can be more expensive).
Minors will not be served wine but can usually attend for free with their parents. Wineries (especially larger ones) will often group visitors (group size usually will not exceed 15 people). It is sometimes possible to request for a private visit (just for 2 or more depending on the size of your party). In all cases Reservations are required.
Some wineries offer the option of having lunch at the winery (for a fixed price or à la carte). Many wine shops and some wineries do offer the possibility of stopping by for a simple wine tasting (without a full guided visit), for free or for a small fee and will sometimes accept people without a reservation. A simple wine tasting usually lasts under 30 minutes. Our price does NOT include meals, winery guided visits & wine tastings which you would pay for directly to restaurant/wineries.
