We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Starting with a pick up from your Florence hotel, this activity is something most people do not even think about doing, but is one of the best ways to learn about Vino and really feel part of the Italian countryside tradition. Defiantly for someone with a strong interest in Italian Culture and Traditions

This Private experience will including meeting and learning from an expert oenologist. After being explained about different grapes, production techniques and distilleries, you'll be faced by 5 different types of 100% wine, where you will have the chance to blend ingredients and products to give a certain character to your very personal wine. You can even create your own customised bottle with cap and tailored label! 

The day will also include a Typical Tuscan lunch accompanied with great local wines. You will be given a bottle of your created wine before leaving, and the rest of the bottles will be racked for maturation inside the winery for 1 month. The matured bottles will then be sent your your address. 

The wine made can only be red (not white) and can be shipped to all addresses within Europe and North America. If you live in other parts of the world and are interested in this experience, please email us before booking.

    Eyes of Rome! I am interested in the Tuscany wine making tour. Can you advise when is the best time to book it to have a real wine seasoned experience? And I read from your website that kids can join the tour, would they do kids activities as well as different food as mentioned on your website?

    It looks very nice though! I am excited

  • Dear Sasha, 

    Vineyard cultivation faces different steps all the year long, so it is always possible to attend a particular phase of the process. However, we'd recommend, when possible, to meet one of the two most representative ones: harving and first wine making

    Harvest refers to the moment when the grapes grown in the vineyard are harvested and transported to the winery and from there and it takes place from the end of August to the beginning of November. The period between September and October is the best time to watch the harvest of red grapes in Chianti. 

    This is indeed a joyful experience to be enjoyed by kids as well, as it puts you in direct contact with habits and traditions of the winemakers. As a grand finale you will enjoy the products of the cellars directly from the barrels (when possible) as they are in the making! Parents get a little relaxation. Kids learn about local agriculture and responsible consumption. 

    We receive many requests for Wine tours where children are part of the family and we are committed to offer our clients the most enjoyable food/wine experience. We accommodate these requests with our suppliers in orde to fulfill your expectations: although depending on the time of the year and the selected stops during the tours, we generally include a selection of organic appetizers, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and freshly baked bread, Salami, Ham and Cheese which are excellent especially in Tuscany! While you will accompany this food with an extraordinary wine, kids will get water juice or drinks, according to your preferences. If you have any requirement for a specific diet you are welcome to send us an inquiry with all of your indications!
