Private tours are exclusively run for the party of people who have booked. No group-ups will occur. The Grape Tours' private tours are fully escorted and include the roundtrip from Florence.
We accept group sizes from 2 to 8 people.
In the all-inclusive private tours, 2 winery visits of our choice are included with tastings and a typical Tuscan lunch. We base our choices on what we believe are the best places to experience, and we're quite picky ;)
But you can also customize your tour with any specific request (winery or restaurant). Please get in touch with your ideas, and we'll send you a quote.
Wineries: Around 30
Cortona lies in the province of Arezzo on the border with Umbria and central Italy's largest lake, Trasimeno. Whereas it was known in history for its white wines, the current head-turner is the territorial potential for extraordinary Syrah.
International grape varieties prevail in this valley region, especially Syrah. But also noteworthy Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is being made.
The DOC allows for both whites and reds, especially varietal Syrah, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. Some of the best bottlings are on par with northern Rhone wines.
