Chianti Winery and Siena

  

Visit to a Chianti winery with wine tasting and private tour in Siena


The day begins with the car picking you up at your hotel to take you in the wonderful Chianti countryside. After a drive through lovely sceneries of about 45 minutes you reach a winery located in a beautiful castle on the Chianti hills. Here the owners will explain to you the history of the place and the art of wine making. You will see the wine yards, the production facilities and the old vaulted cellars for the aging of wine.

 

Then there will be a tasting of the different wines produced in the winery: depending on your preferences this can go from a light taste of two wines with a snack to a wider tasting of 6 wines accompanied by a selection of different kind of cheese, cured meats, bruschettas, extra virgin olive oil and other local products.  And of course it will be possible to buy wine and oil.

 

The driver will then take you to Siena where you will meet your private guide (an art historian with official license from the municipal authority) who will take you for a walking tour through the narrow streets of the historical center and make you discover the treasures of the city. The itinerary will include:

 

  • Piazza del Campo, the square world famous for the horse race
  • Mangia’s tower, completed in 1348, the second tallest in Italy  
  • Gaia Fountain, with decorations by Jacopo Della Quercia
