Tuscany Wine Lovers : biking in the heart of Tuscany

The Tuscany Wine Lovers bike tour starts with you being picked up in Florence and whisked off into the enchanting Chianti countryside. Visiting medieval towns 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 top-notch bikes so then you can begin to pedal your way through an itinerary stopping for several photo opportunities.

Tuscany Wine Lovers bike 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.

Wine Tasting in Chianti

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 Tuscany Wine Lovers bike tour.

Back on the bikes to our next break, cycling through the gorgeous Chianti countryside, where we will stop for a few more photos.
The second stop includes the visit to our favorite boutique winery owned by the same family since 1904.
Located in the south west hills of Castellina in Chianti in the heart of the Chianti Classico DOCG wine region, the owners will guide you through tastings and explain how their wines & Extra Virgin Olive Oil express the soul and heart of their land and the people who work it.

The biking portion 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, you will enter within the town walls for a fascinating stroll into the Middle Age.

After this amazing stop short van transfer takes you to the last treat of your  Tuscany experience :
visit of Ancient Winery of the local producer.
This Farm is the heart of a property of more than 300 Ha and 30 Ha of vineyards, in the oldest part of the Chianti Classico area.
