The tour begins in the coastal region of Maremma, often referred as the “Wild West” because of its landscapes and trailblazing winemakers. This off the beaten path area had been swamp land for centuries but once drained it opened to farmland and vineyards giving life to the term SuperTuscan wines.

Visit pioneer winemakers as well as newcomer boutique producers in Bolgheri where Bordeaux blend grapes truly excel and other interesting wines are made from local grape varietals.

We then travel along the iconic and spectacular Val D’Orcia, where you will be charmed by the medieval towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano, and Pienza. Breathtaking and picture-perfect iconic landscapes! Visit single vineyard winemakers and top-quality producers of Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.Learn the process of making pecorino cheese from a local cheese maker in Pienza who will delight us in a unique experience.

Sangiovese grapes prevail in the enchanting Chianti Classico wine region. Discover the  different expressions of this noble grape. Visit historic estates with abbeys and manicured gardens, as wellas smaller winery estates for sit down sommerlier led exclusive tastings.
