Tuscany is world famous for the production of excellent wines, thanks to its unique D.O.C., I.G.T. and D.O.C.G. wines. The Chianti area is strongly tied to its wines and the wine culture in general. The art of wine-making, or – for the many interested tourists - the art of wine tasting, the wineries around Tuscany are the places to enjoy both. Discover and indulge in the pleasures of this enchanting region with vineyard tours, cooking courses, or many different other wine and gourmet itineraries. Between Florence and Siena you will find many farms, wineries and wine cellars that proudly offer their products. Big, small, old or new -wineries in Chianti will allow you to experience the real taste of wine.
