Private Chianti Wine Tasting from Florence | Tuscany Half Day Experience
LivTours’ Chianti Wine Tasting offers visitors the opportunity to experience Wine Country in the best way possible, by private car with a personal chauffeur! Being the birthplace of Chianti wine, Tuscany is a great destination for wine aficionados. This LivTours experience whisks you away from the lively city and into the gorgeous, rolling Tuscan hills. Experience firsthand the bucolic scenery that is so important to Italian culture and history. Your private driver will take you to two very different wineries where you will be able to taste and learn about the incredible diversity in this historic wine region.
Your first stop will be to visit and walk the grounds of one of the oldest Chianti producers in the region. Here you’ll taste some of the best Chianti wine in the whole region. Afterward, you will visit another small, traditional family-owned winery: explore the vineyard, learn about its history and incredible wines, and get to know the family history. Enjoy a light lunch with traditional Tuscan food and wine made right there at their estate. You’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the Tuscan hills and the ancient city of San Gimignano in the background.
After exploring the gorgeous Tuscan scenery and tasting their renowned wine and food, your private chauffeur will take you back to Florence in time for enjoying the evening. This is an unforgettable experience through the heart of Italian wine and culture!

Tuscan wine tour
"I booked this tour as a surprise birthday present for my husband, an avid wine lover but, frankly, who wouldn't enjoy a tour centered around tasting and learning about some of the most famous wines in the world? The countryside is beautiful, the guide absolutely brilliant and the wines...well, there's just no one-word adjective that adequately describs our experience. A really wonderful tour!!"
