A journey through the “terracotta” road

Posted By : admin/ 240 0

with terracotta road – De Gustibus Chianti wine Tour, it will be possible, on request, to assist the artisans while they are working or to organize a workshop to become the protagonist and learn some tricks on how to be a terracotta master artisan.

We will reach Greve in Chianti, one of the most famous village in the Chianti Classico area. After a short visit of the village we will stop at one of our small producers, who will entertain you with his stories while enjoying a typical Tuscan lunch accompanied by wine and products from his land. After lunch we will reach another Medieval village for a short walk (and maybe a coffee break). The town of Castellina in Chianti, of Etruscan origin, is located at the crossroads of the major valleys of this area (Arbia, Elsa and Pesa).

On our way back, we will stop at another small producer to enjoy a second wine-tasting.
