Close your eyes and try to picture the perfect vacation—it probably consists of a ton of relaxation time, a gorgeous destination, and an insane supply of top-notch vino, am I right? For those of you looking to get away to a destination as dreamy as that, I have the perfect excursion for you in the beautiful land of Tuscany.
Florence's exclusive five-star hotel Il Salviatino is now offering a one-of-a-kind adventure through the hills of Chianti, the region of Italy where the famed dry red wine is made. You'll be taken off-roading through vineyards in a vintage car by your tour guide, and taken to wineries throughout the region. The package includes 15 wine tastings (!!!) and three grappa tastings (a grape-based pomace brandy).
Your pick-up and drop-off at Il Salviatino is included in the package, so you won't have to scramble to meet your driver somewhere outside the hotel. The tour lasts around five hours total, making it the perfect afternoon trip during your time in Italy. You'll have a complete guided tour of three different wineries in the Chianti region, and be exposed to the well-kept secrets of how to make a true Tuscan wine.
Don't consider yourself a wine connoisseur? You'll also be able to try three different kinds of extra-virgin olive oil and honey. Plus you'll be served a delicious Tuscan lunch during the excursion. Happy wine-ing!
The private tour is priced at $435 per person and only available to guests of Il Salviatino.
