This was a great wine tour outside Florence. The departure location was a little out of the way but easy to find with their instructions. The tour guide Violeta was engaging, funny, and knowledgeable and we learned a LOT about Chianti wines on the ride out there. The two vineyards we visited had great wines and really beautiful views. I'd recommend this to wine-tasting newbies and wine lovers alike. This is Chianti country so all the wines were red except one, so maybe not recommended if you don't like red wines. The "snacks" offered at the second winery were more like a full lunch. Delicious local meats and cheeses, and great olive oils.

Very smooth experience! The trip was 4.5h, and honestly there was no wasted time. I don't know how you would have squeezed in another vineyard or town stop in this half day experience without feeling very rushed. The guide Daniele and Andrea were both lovely, and Daniele has a lovely and gentle way of easing everyone into the experience. It was great hearing his insights into the wine and Florence on the way to the first winery. Both winery's had great guides too. The wine in Casa Emma (the second stop) was particularly good! Mostly American couples on our tour along with a few Europeans- no comment on this, just may be interesting for someone else to hear :D

Visited two vineyards - only a 45 min drive from Florence. Pro tip, make sure you eat and buy water before walking to the meeting point. There are no stands, cafes, or restaurants there. Only near the train station and it was slim pickings. Both vineyards had stunning views! The Fattoria Montecchio included a short tour. Plenty of time to take photos and sample three red blends. Also, two of the EVOO produced there. They served small pieces of bread for dipping. The Casa Emma served four wines, including a white blend and rosé. They also served a large plate of nibbles. We were seated outside on the terrace for the sampling. The guide didn’t spent much time explaining about their operation, we probably all looked a bit tipsy. Hehe Was a great experience and would definitely recommend!
