Tour Description

Explore the great wine region and travel through Etruscan, Medieval & Renaissance towns 

TRAVEL WITH ME From Maremma, Bolgheri to Val D’Orcia, and Chianti through Etruscan, Medieval and Renaissance towns of Tuscany.

Experience the Tuscany wine country. One of the most breathtaking and carefully preserved areas in Italy where incredible wines are made. From Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, to the rising Bolgheri andMaremma wines, they are all a powerful expression of centuries old traditions.

We will start down the Tuscan Coast in the Maremma regions considered Tuscany’s Wild West and where most tourists have never been.  Swamp land for centuries, once drained it opened to farmland and vineyards giving life to the Super Tuscan Wines, and  Bolgheri is where these wines truly excel. We will visit pioneer and newcomers.

The wines on this tour will surprise the wine novice and delight even the most discerning wine connoisseur.

Visit the charming towns like Montepulciano, Pienza and Gothic Siena. Enjoy a picnic in the Chianti vineyards.
