The Chianti Bike Tasting tour starts with you being picked up and whisked off into the enchanting Chianti countryside visiting medieval towns where you can stroll down the cobblestone streets, admire the tall lookout towers and do a bit of shopping. After the visits, we will fit you with one of our quality bikes and you will begin to pedal your way through an itinerary stopping for several photo opportunities.
Chianti Bike Tasting tour promises to satisfy your taste buds with our three exclusive wine tastings. Here you will experience the tingling tannin of the Sangiovese, the minerality of the Vernaccia and a few surprises. Each vineyard will show you a completely different aspect of Chianti, introducing you to its diversity and uniqueness.
Chianti Bike Tasting Tour features:
The first stop features not just typical Tuscan wines but also a few other regions in Italy. The support van will be with you the entire trip. You can make purchases and store them in the van until the end of the Chianti Bike Tasting Tour.
Back on the bikes to our next stop, cycling through the gorgeous Chianti countryside, where we will stop for a few more photos. The second stop includes a visit to their antique cantina, followed by four lovely wines and their delicious extra-virgin olive oil. The owners will guide you through tastings and explain how their wines express the soul and heart of their land and the people who work it.
The tour ends with a visit to the charming walled village of Monteriggioni, an ancient medieval outpost founded to protect the Republic of Siena. Surrounded by age old olive groves and vineyards, we will enter within the town walls for your third wine experience with lunch. Pairing local organic products with Tuscan wines in the cantina of the local producer, you will experience the savory goodness of the area.
