At the end of the guided tour of Tuscany best medieval towns, you can decide whether to give yourself one or more gastronomic experiences, including a food and wine tasting in a farm in Chianti.
There are so many beautiful places to visit in Tuscany and in this tour I will guide you through the most characteristic small towns, to admire their most significant medieval buildings and discover their local traditions and we will also focus on the origins of Chianti wine which in these areas had its birth and its enormous development.
As a matter of fact, Tuscany is known as the land of good wine, especially Chianti Classico, an intense and full-bodied red wine that tastes delicious especially when paired with the most typical local foods. During the guided tour I will tell you the secrets of Tuscany wine and extra virgin olive oil production and I will show you some splendid farms in the heart of Tuscan countryside which are specialized in this business.
At the end of the guided tour with me, if you want you can stop at the farm for an olive oil and chianti classico wine tasting, accompanied by some snacks and typical tuscan products and/or even end your experience delightfully with a typical Tuscan lunch at their restaurant, based on local appetizers and starters, a first course of pasta and a dessert.
You will begin visiting this beautiful Tuscany organic farm in the Chianti area: the owners of the farm will first start telling you about their family history, their business and the cultivation techniques of their vineyards and olive groves, then you will visit the cellars where wine is stored to age in barrels and barriques and finally you will go to the bottling area to understand the final process of wine making.
At the end of the visit at the farm, you will move to the restaurant area on a splendid panoramic terrace where you can taste the best Tuscany wines and extra virgin olive oil produced by them, while one of the family’s members will explain to you their organoleptic characteristics and how to combine food and wines to enhance their flavors.
A perfect experience to fully enjoy all the beauty that this region has to offer, both artistic and culinary.
