The Chianti area
Chianti is for sure the most celebrated and renowned region of the Tuscan countryside.
Its name has traveled around the world on wine labels, while its vineyard cultivated estates have become a true symbol of landscape beauty. However, the ravishing charm of its views and the sublime quality of its products are not the sole element that makes Chianti so unique. Here, every speciality and every element of the landscape is imbued with Tuscan spirit and history. The exquisite taste of its olive oil and the soothing sight of its cypress avenues are the direct inheritance of the ancient Etruscan civilization. The striking, almost garden-like, appearance of its estates is a reminder of the industriousness and dedication of countless generations of Tuscans farmers. The sublime taste of its wine is a testimony to the ingenuity of Bettino Ricasoli and other Tuscan wine makers, whose pursuit of the perfect taste created one of the world’s most renowned vine-grape blends.
Of course, during our visit, we will take care of all the logistics so that you will be able to enjoy Chianti at best, but this is not all. Our main aim is for you to truly experience its spirit, the very heart and soul of its uniqueness. This means that we will make you discover the history behind Chianti’s landscape and flavours as well as introducing you to the local wine producers. They are the true joining link between Chianti’s land and its full bodied wine.
