When you book your own Tuscany wine holidays, you can plan your own itinerary, making sure that you are not forced to fit into any pre-arranged package tour. There are many wonderful wine regions in Tuscany, and the best place to start is at a local winery. There is something very special about the way a Tuscany vineyard, or one near you, smells, feels and tastes – a combination of the earthy, spicy and fruity flavors of local grape varieties and the floral aromas of local flowers.
After breakfast on the first day of your holiday in Tuscany, you’ll be met by an English speaking guide, who’ll escort you on a short Chianti wine ride in an upmarket touring car (Mercedes E class or equivalent) accompanied by a wine driver/tour guide. This driver will lead you around the countryside, taking you down small country lanes and into the most beautiful and picturesque villages and towns.
The wines from Tuscany are considered some of the best in the world; the reason for this is not only that the soil in the region is very rich, but also because most of the local grapes grown are of the same high quality and variety as the grapes used in the world’s finest wines. The area is well known worldwide for its wine and the quality of the wines produced in Tuscany is legendary.
One of the most popular wineries is San Gimignano, where the wines of the Chianti region are produced. Other popular areas in Tuscany include Tuscany’s capital of Florence, which has several prestigious hotels and restaurants and which is renowned for its outstanding cuisine. Piedmont, a town in the centre of Tuscany, is another popular place to visit.
