Florence for wine lovers

Vino experiences for fans of Tuscany’s most well-known product.

The reasons to come to Florence are endless, but undoubtedly many are attracted by the appeal of Tuscan wine. Something truly special in the territory leads to bottled excellence that is as much a part of your trip as a visit to the Duomo. For lovers of vino, there are plenty of options for experiencing some of the finest wines to be found in the Renaissance city and beyond, as well as places to learn about the craft of winemaking and its centuries of history, such as at the Wine and Vine museum in the Tuscan countryside. 

Trips to top-class cantine

Make like the Medici and head to the Tenuta di Artimino that has links to Florence’s most famous family. A sommelier will take you through classic Carmignano DOCG wines that were once sipped by the noble clan and now are enjoyed worldwide for their elegance and fine finish. Of course, no Tuscan wine tasting would be complete without a board of cheeses and cold cuts, to be enjoyed as you admire the incredible setting of the Sala del Delfino inside the UNESCO Villa Medicea La Ferdinanda, set on 732 hectares.

Carmignano is also home to the beautiful Tenuta di Capezzana, just 20 km north of Florence. Owned by the Contini Bonacossi family, the 650-hectare estate has been producing wine and oil for centuries, which you can learn about in the cellar tour and light-lunch that’s accompanied by a tasting of 5 Cappezana wines.

Chianti cruising

Chianti is synonymous with Tuscany. Take a tour to the Chianti wine region to immerse yourself in the picturesque setting of vineyards, olive groves and medieval villages to relish in a delicious wine tasting accompanied by local products at a typical winery.

Add in contemporary art with the VIP Chianti tour for a unique trip through the heart of Chianti Classico, with a luxury van and private driver at your disposal. Discover works by Michelangelo Pistoletto, Anish Kapoor, Louise Bourgeois and others, with stellar quality wines from Wine Spectator, one of the world’s most sought-after categories.

Exploring the countryside

Brunello di Montalcino is known worldwide for its excellence. A small group tour brings you from Florence to Montalcino just south of Siena for tastings in the fairytale-like hilltop town. Breathtaking views of the Val d’Orcia astonish as you sip straight from the cask, with a typical Tuscan lunch at a local farm completing the idyllic experience.

If you’re looking for a more adventurous way to experience wine, take the Tuscany Wineland Safari. A Range Rover Defender takes you along the rolling hills of the Chianti hillside to a wine tour of a typical Chianti farmhouse and cellar. A picnic accompanied with wine breaks up the journey, with a trip to an abbey and castle, and a 3-course Tuscan light lunch topping things off. 

Ultimately, wherever you choose to stop and sip in Florence and beyond, you’re bound to find a glass of something spectacular as the experiences on offer are endless.
