    Winery Visit & Tasting at Cantina Antinori in Chianti Classico

Winery Visit & Tasting at Cantina Antinori in Chianti Classico

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 2 hours (excluding transfer time)

Combine Chianti wine with the blissful Tuscan countryside in this half-day wine tour to the Cantina Antinori departing from Florence.

Overview

Antinori is a name that elicits reverence, respect and awe in the world of wine. This Tuscan family has been making wine for 26 generations, and a tour and tasting at their state-of-the-art cantina in the heart of beautiful Chianti country is an unforgettable experience. Departing from your Florence hotel, you will head to the brand-new Antinori cantina - the world headquarters of their brand - located in San Casciano Val di Pesa, only a scenic, half an hour drive through the undulating hills of Tuscany.

As you approach San Casciano, you will notice that the cantina is literally constructed in the hillside, a conscious decision to punctuate the winery's rootedness to the land around it, as well as to maximize energy efficiency. Designed by Marco Casamonti, one of Italy's leading architects, the structure is not just a cantina but also features an auditorium, museum, restaurant and wine shop inside its 540,000 square-foot expanse.

The Antinori museum traces the family's long and illustrious history and displays their private art collection that includes many portraits of ancestors, as well as three contemporary art installations made especially for the cantina by Rosa Barba, Yona Friedman and Jean-Baptiste Decavele.

After a tour of the museum, you will proceed to the wine cellars: a series of softly-lit, sleek caves and spectacular, airy rooms that are tucked deep inside the hill, hidden behind discreet doors. Your tour of this remarkable temple of wine will end with a tasting of three of the best Antinori wines: Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva, Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva and Badia a Passignano.

Please note that for the shared tour, transportation to/from the winery is NOT included in the total price.
