En smak av Chianti: toscansk ost, vin og lunsj fra Firenze
Dagens første stopp er ved en vinprodusent som ligger vakkert til, og som tilhører en av de mest velrenommerte aristokratiske familiene i Italia. Her får du smake på tre viner og ost og to olivenoljer , men først får du en fascinerende guidet tur i de historiske vinkjellerne og olivenmøllen via tunneler som løper under villaen. Du får også se villaens vakre hage.
Hopp inn i 4x4-minibussen igjen, og spenn deg fast før denne spennende off-roadopplevelsen. Turen går gjennom deler av eldgammel toscansk skog og over runde åser frem til neste stopp: en tradisjonell toscansk restaurant. Slå deg ned, og skjem bort smaksløkene med noe av den beste maten som Toscana har å by på. Denne lunsjen blir garantert et av høydepunktene på turen. Se eksempelmenyen nedenfor for eksempler på retter.
Med litt ekstra energi innabords går turen til Greve-in-Chianti, en typisk toscansk by med vakre gater og pittoreske butikker. Her får du litt fritid, så du bestemmer selv om du vil ta en kaffe (for egen regning) eller rett og slett bare suge til deg den italienske kulturen. Her kjøper dere et utvalg typiske salumi (spekekjøtt) fra en av Italias mest berømte slaktere. Spekekjøttet skal dere smake på ved den andre vinprodusenten.
Resten av ettermiddagen tilbringer du på en vingård som produserer Chianti Classico-vin, dypt inne i Chianti-området. Denne vinprodusenten er ikke like stor som den du besøkte tidligere, og den er heller ikke like kjent, men den har produsert to prisbelønte viner. Du får smake på disse vinene og vite mer om hvordan produsenten har forent innovasjon og tradisjon for å lage dem. Avslutt med søtsaker, og slapp av på vei tilbake til Firenze hvor turen avsluttes.

The Taste of Chianti day trip through Walkabout was amazing and a highlight of our stay in Florence. Gloria was an incredible tour guide and not only knowledgeable about the area but also wine and olive oil. She also had a great sense of humor. On paper it was a long day trip, but it is broken up by several stops and Gloria provided narration for much of it but also allowed for person time to rest. Romolo drove the Beast (I think of it as the big green machine), it is a huge 4 wheel drive truck with a bus cab on the back, and very comfortable inside. Romolo maneuvered it on narrow back roads that didn’t seem possible to fit our vehicle. The food was amazing and the wine was great! I would definitely take another tour by Walkabout and highly recommend them to others.
We had a wonderful day in the Tuscany hillsides. Stefano our guide and John our driver made the trip humorous and safe.
I really hope that Stefano is earning the money he deserves. His expertise is invaluable. Without a doubt Stefano’s insight made this wine tasting the best experience in Firenze. As far as driving is concerned, the driver who I believe to be named John, was great. I really do hope that Stefano receives the accolades he deserves as he truly is a sommelier.
Martina was fabulous, very personable and engaging! What a great way to spend the day and tour the Chianti region and sample various wines, cheeses and olive oil. The ride was a little bumpy at times, and expected, given the area we traveled into wine country. You won't be disappointed.
Gloria from walkabout tours was an amazing guide. Learned a lot about wine and olive oil. Would definitely recommend this tour and tour guide.
This was an absolutely amazing tour. Martina, the guide was friendly, personable and very knowledgeable on the Tuscan region, wine and olive oils. She really made the tour. The wine, olive oil tastings were interesting. The antipasto, lunch and cheese pairings were all great. And the surprise dessert for my wife’s birthday was delicious and a nice bonus. Definitely recommend this tour.
This event was better than we expected. The vehicle is bigger than expected too, and sits high up for a great view of the countryside. Gloria was so gracious and knowledgeable about all aspects, and the winery folks were, too. Really great wine and olive oil tastings and the food was spectacular! Would do it again in a minute.
We enjoyed this trip. Martina was our guide and John was our driver. Martina was very knowledgeable regarding olive oil and Italian wine ratings. The wineries were gorgeous and offered a variety of tasting opportunities paired with foods. A tip is to always wear shoes appropriate for walking outside of vineyards and prepare in case you have rain on the trip.
Wine was great, travel fun in a large BENZ 4 wheeler. One of two in Italy. Martina was the bightest and most interesting guide we could have ever hoped for. Fun of life, facts and super knowledge. Her diverse background as a Florence native nade this tour absolutely perfect. Its is one we will always think fondly of. Totally worth the time and experience will be not forgotten.
Martina and Walkabout Tours provide a vineyards tour experience beyond all expectations. Since they use a 4x4 vehicle the access to the vineyards is fun and exciting. John is a Master at handling the driving.The knowledge and experience that Martina has providers an experience that you will never fly.
Gloria was super friendly and very knowledgable and was just the perfect guide for a tour like this. She took us through each of our site visits sharing all the information she had and answering all the queries the group might have and in between the free time, I loved how she tried to conenct with every couple and family who had joined the trip. The wine tasting was absoluetly worthy of the money we spent on this, the Tuscan lunch was amazing and I loved the liver pate on crostini :D Was very excited to sit in the beast and the initial amount of disclaimers about the off road trip got me slightly snxious but Romolo proved to be a very dependable driver! I would recommend this trip, the beat, Romolo and Gloria to everyone I know visiting this area! :)
Tour guide Gloria was amazing Bus driver was very safe and good driver. Would have rated this a 5 but did not like stop in Greve! Found the locals very rude and left a poor taste!
We had a great time on this Chianti day trip. Stefano was amazing and so so fun! He provided so much information on the vineyards, the Chianti region and wine making, the tour was so much more than your average wine tasting which we really appreciated. The wine and food were all excellent.
Our guide Martina was very good from the beginning of the tour until the end She was well informed and she new everything about wine and olive oil. We learned a lot on this tour. The food was delicious and each wine we tasted had his own character. I can recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed our wine tour and taste of Chianti. We went to 3 wineries and a really neat small Tuscany town Greve. Our guide was Gloria and we really loved her and all of her stories. She was a lot of fun with all she had to say and tying it into her family. Her knowledge of the area, how wine and olive oil is made and some really neat facts made the day great. Serge the driver was great as well and I'm not sure how he managed to get the bus down some of those roads but he did!!! He got us there and back safely. We would recommend this tour and our guides to everyone. Thanks.
Very fun and informative tour. We were able to taste many great wines as well as meet many very nice people. Lavi was an excellent guide and we really enjoyed learning about Chianti classico!
My wife and I enjoyed this excursion immensely. Our guide Lavi was friendly, knowledgeable, and genuinely excited about making sure we enjoyed our day. The wineries and countryside were amazing! I highly recommend this excursion.
