Chianti vineyards

Chianti - guided walking tours with local guides

The Chianti Classico, an area between Florence and Siena, owes its international reputation mainly to the excellent wines that grow amid its enchanting hills. Places like Greve in Chianti, Gaiole, Radda and Castellina in Chianti are the pillars of the world of "gallo nero" (black rooster), a quality label awarded by the area's best wine producers. In addition to vineyards and wineries the chianti offers beautiful oldcountry churches, the so called "Pievi", well-preserved medieval hamlets and powerful castles, evidence of centuries of fierce battles for supremacy in this strategically important area.

All guided tours in the Chianti can be completed by wine tastings in a typical winery.
