Travel by luxury coach to discover the famous Chianti wine region and sample vintage wines in the countryside

This popular day tour is perfect if you want to discover the beauty of the Chianti countryside and sample famous wines in an idyllic setting. It is a great choice for couples looking for a romantic half-day trip from Lucca, as well as groups of friends eager to enjoy the delights of Tuscany.

On this half-day tour, not only will you discover one of the most famous wine regions in the world, but you will also have the opportunity to sample authentic ruby-red Chianti wine and savour its characteristic bouquet. This wine results from the blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and originates from the hilly area from which it draws its name.

This tour first takes you through uncontaminated landscapes to the Chianti vineyards, where you can visit a charming wine estate. Here, you will be treated to a guided tour of the wine cellars, allowing you to gain insight into the various stages of wine production. You will then sit down to enjoy a wine-tasting experience, paired with samples of sliced cured meats, bruschetta and salami.

The tour then takes you to the charming town of Monteriggioni, where you will see the characteristic fortress, and there will be free time here to shop for typical Tuscan products, or perhaps relax in one of the elegant cafés. The tour then concludes with a second tasting of olive oil and wine in one of our favourite Monteriggioni wineries.
