The first area in Italy, in which the Etruscans planted the vine (back in the 10th century B.C.), was the Chianti district, 
known in Etruscan times, as Aclantis. Its history and beauty are both compelling and strangely familiar: a land that has been 
lovingly tilled and cared for by farmers for over 3.000 years.You will visit one of the most famous Chianti wine-growing estates.
 When you reach the castle surrounded by vine-yards, you will receive the traditional welcome reserved by all Tuscans 
to their guests and will be taken to tour the historical cellars and the castle. You will find out some of the secrets 
of wine making and, sitting comfortably at tables laid with wine-glasses, you will be introduced to a variety of prestigious wines.

As well as wine, you will taste typically Tuscan snacks – crostini (toasted Tuscan bread) with fresh tomato, 
Tuscan salame or cured ham, bruschetta (toasted Tuscan bread rubbed with garlic and estate produced extra virgin olive oil), 
the local pecorino (sheep’s cheese), etc.

Lastly, you will be given a glass of the estate’s precious Vin Santo (Holy Wine), into which you can 
dunk the famous Tuscan cantuccini: a lovely conclusion to the meal.
During this excursion, you will also visit an ancient village, 
to find out a bit more about the many delights contained in 
this enchanted part of the world.
