After an hour, return to the minivan to travel to 2 local wineries, where you’ll enjoy a tour of the cellars. Learn about Chianti region's unique winemaking tradition and the process of production.
Then head to a stunning Italian villa, wrapped in cypress and olive trees, where the cellars of 2 boutique wineries sit. Settle down for a traditional Tuscan lunch of specialties like salami, bruschetta, prosciutto and Pecorino cheese, complemented by fine Chianti wine.
