Immerse yourself in the picturesque scenery of gently rolling hills, studded with ancient vineyards and cypress trees. You will go to the sublime town and fortress of Monteriggioni, mentioned in Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy,” and boasting some of the best-preserved city walls in all of Italy. Continue with a visit to a charming Chianti wine estate. After a guided tour of the wine cellars, to gain an insight into the various stages of wine production, sit down and taste the various wines that the winery produces, paired with samples of sliced cold meats, bruschetta and salami.
