I did a sommelier’s course some years ago where I was introduced to boutique wineries, that came highly recommended by my tutors. Needless to say they gave me good advice; We’re talking of limited productions and manic attention to detail. The resulting wines are of true excellence, achieving the niche respect typical of high quality products. However price points are far lower than the famous names, while offering the same outstanding quality. Our visits to the wineries will be personal and last one to one and half hours, and we visit two estates during the tour. I’ve chosen the best of the best, you won’t be missing out with “only” two I assure you.

Super Tuscan wine tour from Florence

09:15 Pick up is directly from your accommodation in Florence (other locations available on request), and we head south towards the Chianti wine district, where we arrive after about forty five minutes. We’ll spend the first part of the morning enjoying the spectacular countryside and taking a few photos. Take all the time you need we’re not in a hurry. Around eleven we arrive at the first estate of the day. It’s a family winery of medium size, with one of the most personable staffs you could wish for.

You’ll be presented with a selection of Chianti and Super Tuscan wines; which means the complete array of products that define the area. You’ll notice the difference in styles with a more acidic Chianti, and softer bolder Super Tuscan. The winery is certified organic.

Around one we’ll have a typical two course Tuscan light lunch in one of my favorite restaurants. Your meal is included in the fee below.

After lunch we continue our drive through the Tuscan countryside following and off beaten track route of about forty five minutes. Our second winery is another a family run concern, and again certified organic. We’ll visit the cellars and learn about their manic dedication to quality. This has made a decision to “only” produce Super Tuscans. They make no concessions to conforming to the standard appellations of the region, and only the highest quality is good enough. The reviews and awrds you’ll see on thier tasting room walls are so many, you’ll understand what I mean. In keeping with what is expected from a Super Tuscan, we taste wines based on Cabernet, Sangiovese and Merlot blends. Our Super Tuscan wine tour from Florence ends around 4:15pm and we head back to Florence arriving at 5.15pm.
