The proposed itinerary follows two principal guide lines, suggesting two different ways to experience the Chianti area: one historical and artistic, admiring churches, abbeys, medieval hamlets and one based on the tasting of delicious and typical food and wine . Passing along the Via Chiantigiana rural path you will reach Castellina: fall in love with this medieval village of Etruscan origin, be impressed by the majestic Rocca with the overview of the gorgeous landascape! Later, enjoy the second part of the tour with an authentic gourmet food and wine experience: you will have the opportunity to meet the owners of two boutique wineries, where the family passion for the wine and Tuscan land, expresses itself in the excellent quality of its local products and its wines. Let yourself be embraced by the lovely atmosphere of both wineries , nestled in the vineyards, and by the flavor of their full-bodied wine accompanied by delightful local products.
The experience in the second winery is enriched by an appetizing truffle-based lunch : the genuineness of the Tuscan ingredients is accompanied by the tasting of six wines that exalt the flavours of each course and make for a merry mood around the table!
