Chianti discovery wine day tour
Here is what you will live
Chianti. Everybody knows the word Chianti. But if you really want to understand why this name or brand is so important and what makes it so special, you need to book this special tour. Not only a series of wine tasting, but a special itinerary meant to let you deeply discover and appreciate the chianti production, with 3 wineries that are very close but also different in style. Each of their production is different.
Your first winery will be Montemaggio, a small family run organic estate! It is situated where once a 14th century tower stood above the old Roman road between Siena and Florence in Italy.
The estate extends over an area of 70 hectares (about 190 acres) of vineyards, olive groves and woods; it is situated at a high altitude of 450 to 600 meters above the sea level. The vineyards have a central position in the estate with an exposure to southwest of remarkable importance. The soil is rich on galestro, sandstone, and alberese. The main grape varieties in our vineyards are Sangiovese, with small additions of Merlot, Pugnitello, Chardonnay, Malvasia Nera, and Ciliegiolo.
Get ready for a total Immersion Wine Tour with visit of the vineyards with explanation of working process and of organic agriculture, walking through the gardens of the villa and view of the vegetable garden you will arrive to the cellar with explanation of winemaking process. After that you will taste seven wines and their Grappa. During the tasting they also offer “a tagliere “ with some little snacks of cheese, salamino and bread with our olive oil and a mini tasting course!
After Montemaggio your next winery will be Castello Querceto, where you'll visit a completely different estate. The tour includes a guided visit to the castle’s outdoor spaces and historic walkways, wine making cellars, ageing cellars, historic bottle collection starting from the first 20th century vintages and part of the Castle’s interiors including its ancient tower and still consecrated chapel. The visit ends in the company wine shop with a tasting of three wines representing our production.
Last but not least, Monterinaldi winery will wait for you for the final experience of Chianti discovery, with a tasting of 4 different wines and extra virgin olive oil, all their own production, accompanied by a selection of local cold cuts and cheeses.
At the end of the day you'll also receive our special gift, the certificate of CHIANTI EXPERT with also the recap of the wineries you visited, a special gift to rembember you Chianti discovery wine day tour forever!
