  3. Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 : Florence

    Pick-up and departure.


    First boutique winery

    Luiano has been producing wine and olive oil since the 9th century. The estate has belonged to famous families from Florence, including the Strozzi. In 1959 the Palombo family took the ownership of the business and abandoned the mixed agricultural system. Their focus on cultivating solely vines helped them achieve wine of the highest quality. Sangiovese grape represents the largest portion of grape variety planted on their territory. The long-lasting tradition of winemaking is attested by ancient cellars built during the Renaissance. Here you will tour the property, vineyard and wine cellars in which vinification takes place and wines are displayed. Afterwards, you will enjoy a Chianti-based wine tasting with a view.


    Second boutique winery

    Enjoy a guided tour of the winery by the owner himself, whose passion is felt in every wine produced. The commercial farm has been run by the same family since 1970 and is a certified organic farm. It is assumed that a long time ago the property used to be owned by Guido Cavalcanti, a famous Italian poet. The terroir of the vineyards is stony, challenging and exposed to the south, which makes it suitable for varieties like Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Located in Panzano, the heart of Chianti Classico, this winery will offer you more than a wine tasting. Here you will enjoy a 3-course lunch prepared by the family who runs the property. In the production of the dishes, only fresh km 0 ingredients are used. Lunch is served in a relaxing and exclusive ambiance in the family's house, that best describes the Tuscan countryside.
