On this private tour from the port of Livorno to the Chianti Region, you will visit two wineries in the charming villages of San Donato in Poggio and Castellina. At the end of your Chianti wine tour, your private driver will take you back to your cruise ship at the port of Livorno.
The Chianti Region is universally acclaimed for its classic wines and natural beauty. This tour combines wine-tasting (with lunch on request) and a country drive through magnificent Tuscan landscapes, a magical world of woods alternating with vines and olive trees.
Visit the cellars, learn about the process of winemaking and traditional bottling methods and savor fine wines accompanied by local food. This wine growing area is located in the Tuscan hills of west-central Italy, few places better bring together a trio of the best things in life, sun, food and wine.
It is based on the Sangiovese grape and is bone-dry, high in acidity, moderate in alcohol, and displays aromas and flavors of red cherries and roasted herbs. Chianti Classico, a hilly area between the cities of Florence and Siena, is the original zone.
Spend the day tasting superb wines, sampling local specialties. Your driver will introduce you to the ageless atmosphere of medieval hill top towns and fortified castles. If you wish to share the cost of a private Chianti tour by joining a mixed group, a good suggestion is to go to “roll calls” on Cruise Critic and form your own group.
