Wine transfer day from Bologna to Florence
Here is what you will live
If you're looking for a different going from Bologna to Florence, this is the perfect option for you.
Departing at 8 am from the city of Bologna you'll go towards Florence and on this tour you will enjoy 2 different wine tasting experiences. The reason of the suggested departure at 8 am is to make sure you can arrive to the first winery by 10 am
The first visit will be at Castello del Trebbio, where you'll enjoy a special Chianti experience. Nothing can be said of the history of Chianti without its main protagonist, Sangiovese. At the same time, developments in viticulture and enology, allow us to proudly demonstrate how the subzone of the Chianti Rufina is an excellent territory for other grape varietals such as Merlot. Under the care of this winery, Merlot is capable of fully expressing all of its elegance.
With this tour you'll ou’ll experience the Castle’s historic milestones first hand. This history is interwoven with that of Florence and its historic noble banking family the De’ Pazzi, the castle original owners from the 12th century. The Pazzi family’s crest still adorns our courtyard today and was created by one of the true Renaissance masters, Donatello.
Stepping down into the ancient cellars, entering their doors, you’ll see magnificent oak barrels, used today for aging their wines.
After this cellar tour, you’ll taste some of the wines paired with small snacks such as “fettunta,” (toasted bread covered in our own extra virgin olive oil), Tuscan salami and Pecorino cheese.
Castello del Trebbio’s wines are the manifestation of two souls: A continuation of great tradition on one hand and the new potential of this territory on the other. Along with the traditional Sangiovese based wines, such as the Chianti DOCG and the Chianti Rufina Riserva “Lastricato,” the winery produces another line of wines sold under our “Vigneti Trebbio” label. These modern concept wines are created from grape varietals new to the area. With great care and professional handling in the vineyards and cellars, these new varietals have found a new chosen land in the Chianti Rufina.
After the tour and tasting you'll go to the second winery, a family business company, for a great wine tour (different wines, different style) and a special wine tasting and light lunch including:
- Crostini with vegetables of the garden paired with Bianco di Toscana IGT Erta al Mandorlo 2018
- Charcuterie tasting paired with Rosso di Toscana IGT Com'Era 2014 Non Filtrato
- The typical homemade Ribollita, with Chianti Superiore DOCG Voce alla Terra 2015
- Taste of Grappa
At the end of the tour, you'll reach Florence in less thatn 15 minutes
