Tour description provided by Viator

First we tour vineyards and cellar of an organic farm in the heart of the Chianti region, receiving an up close look at the production and ageing process of the Chianti wines and learning about the secrets of the extra virgin olive oil making. This experience includes a  wine tasting and the opportunity to buy for cheap the best tuscan wines. Our trip continues on to the  medieval town of San Gimignano, where you have the chance to try the famous world champion Dondoli gelato. We then move on to a second winery where we enjoy an authentic  tuscan lunch, combined to a wine tasting class. A fine selection of Tuscan wines are presented by a wine expert to be paired with antipasti toscani, ribollita soup and lasagna with truffle olive oil. On our way back we stop at  Piazzale Michelangelo, in the top ten of the most romantic spots in Europe.
