Hey you, wine lovers out there! Don’t you feel like exploring the most iconic wine region of the world through its less known and still top-notch country-chic producers? Here we are!

  
  12:00 pm: Meet the local guide at Castello di Verrazzano in Greve In Chianti to first of all discover their ancient history and the family landmarks: Giovanni da Verrazzano, the navigator and discoverer of the bay of New York and of most of the East coast of modern U.S., was born here in 1485!
 
  After visiting both the vineyards and the cellars dating back to the 1500s, you will be captured by a fabulous lunch in full Tuscan style, paired with a selection of the most representative company gems, including not only the Supertuscans but also vinsanto and grappa: PDO Tuscan ham, wild boar salami, head cheese, finocchiona (a typical salami flavoured with fennel seeds), crostino with lard, homemade EVO oil, pecorino (sheep cheese), pasta with tomato sauce, grilled sausages and rosticciana (pork ribs) or roast pork loin with side dishes from the garden, farm cake and – goes without saying - cantuccini and a reinvigorating italian espresso.
 
  03:00 pm: Head on to Gaiole, true homeland of Chianti classico.
 
  03:45 pm: Guided tour of Capannelle, a high-profile wine making estate dating back to 1974 and since then boasting noticeable partnerships such as Avignonesi, Enoteca Pinchiorri, Orient Express Hotels and Michelin. The final tasting will make the happy ending to this fab day, with unforgettable Chiantis and a remarkable Chardonnay.
 
  05:15 pm: End of the activities and back to Florence / to your next destination.
