Private Romantic Castle wine tour

Itinerary


On this very special day we will head for two of Chianti Classico's top wineries for Super Tuscans. As always, we search out the best wineries for a top experience for great wine, quality of the experience and location. Our first winery is famous for making only IGT wines, so escaping the rules of Chianti Classico altogether. The sole purpose is to produce the highest possible quality wines with that single thought in mind. We'll visit the prestine cellars to understand how this thought is put into practice and we'll end by a tasting of the great wines of the estate. At Dario Cecchini's restuarant we'll sit though a meal with servings of 3 different steaks, the Costata Fiorentina, Bistecca Pazanese and the Bistecca Fiorentina. It's a special affair that takes a couple of hours, but if you love good food and company this is a very special experience. In the afternoon we visit a second winery, historically famous for its Super Tuscan wines. We'll enjoy another winery tour and taste wines both regional and featuring the international blends.

CASTLES OF CHIANTI

The Chianti Classico region is dotted by castles, medieval towers, and abbeys or monasteries. Some have been converted into wineries and are privately owned.

Most were fortressed and date back to sometime between the 11 and 15 hundreds when the area was contested between Florence and Siena. The castles functioned as summer residences for the nobility and were handed down from generation to generation.

After WWII the class system was demolished and properties were slowly transformed. In some cases, they remain private, but often they have been renovated or are in use of the winery adjacent to them.

HOW DOES THE GOURMET LUNCH WORK? When it's time for lunch, we'll drop you off at our favorite gourmet restaurant in the region. You'll have a couple of hours of intimate dining with 3 courses, wine included. The restaurant host will cater to your taste, so the meu will run over with you before you start in order to cater to your taste.
