    Florence horse riding and tasting of Chianti wines

Florence horse riding and tasting of Chianti wines


This horseback ride in the Chianti hills followed by a tasting of fine Tuscan wines in the cellars of a historic villa will prove a welcome diversion from the hustle and bustle of the City Center.

A half-hour chauffeured transfer from downtown Florence will take to a riding school in the Florentine countryside, where your four-legged companion will make you discover a typical corner of the Tuscan countryside, among green hills dotted with vineyards and olive groves.

After the horseback ride, you will be taken to an old wine estate in the surroundings of the stables for a guided tasting of their fine wines. An introduction about the historic Villa will lead you to its cellars, where you will learn the secrets of making and aging fine Tuscan wines.

The wine tasting includes three different wines and a dessert wine, and will be accompanied by a light lunch of hearty Ribollita (Tuscan bread soup), tasty cheeses and cold cuts and bruschetta seasoned with extra virgin olive oil from the same estate, as well as the typical Cantucci almond biscuits to dip into the dessert wine.




Before your private transfer back to Florence, you will have the opportunity to buy the estate's wines, oil and delicatessen, which the owners will be happy to ship to your home address if you so wish.
Please note: on Saturdays and Sundays in winter, the wine tasting will be held in a typical historic Tuscan grocery store.
