Tuscan Countryside Bike & Wine Tour
Immerse your senses. Feel the cool breeze on your face and smell the sweet scents of nature as you travel through vineyards and olive groves. Taste the exciting flavors of Tuscan wines as you discover the world of wine. A once-in-a lifetime experience that will let you enjoy a small-group exclusive wine tour in the most nature-oriented way: ride through the gentle hills of Chianti wine region. This professionally guided wine tour and fully supported bike ride in the Tuscan countryside begins with a comfortable shuttle transportation out of the busy city center. Within 25 minutes you‟ll reach a Renaissance noble Villa- the starting point for your bike tour. Travel scenic country roads, Tuscan hilltops and hillside villa estates are all part of the breathtaking panoramic views you will see different in their settings. Visit a famous winery with its Renaissance Villa, producing some of the most renowned wines in the world, and a fascinating family-run organic farm and winery. Learn the techniques of production, ageing, storing and bottling wine and olive oil. Discover the different approaches these two wineries have in wine production: from the application of modern techniques to the rediscovery of ancient gestures through a fully organic production. Once back at the Renaissance Villa, you will enjoy a typical Tuscan lunch in its “enoteca”, set in the 1000-year-old cellar, tasting the incredible wines of the wineries you just visited (both wineries boast international recognition and rewards), and learning wine pairing.
The bike itinerary includes flat, downhill and uphill sections, to give you a complete variety of views and biking experiences. Having a van always following the group, you can decide yourself how you want to approach the biking part of this experience. If you feel fit enough, you can join it as an intermediate level bike ride, with some interesting uphill sections. If you want to join it in a more relaxed mode, you can still enjoy most of the biking itinerary (just the flat and downhill sections), relying on the van assistance for the couple of short uphill parts.
