The Chianti region, 70,000 hectares between Siena and Florence, is worldwide famous for wine production. The so-called Chianti Classico is a special type of Chianti wine produced in the municipalities of Greve in Chianti, Barberino Val d'Elsa, San Casciano and Tavernelle in Val di Pesa.

The Chianti classico wine boasts the DOCG label which guarantees the quality and and origin of the wine. Not only must the Chianti classico wine be produced in certain municipalities (see above for the list), but also it must be prepared with at least 80% of Sangiovese grapes, the typical red variety of the region.
Not only red wine, but also extra virgin olive oil is another must product to taste while travelling around the pictoresque streets of the region. If you need a break from the busy streets of the city, a trip to Chianti is a great idea!
The best way to visit Chianti is by car, driving the Chianti Road (SS 222)
All around the region of Chianti, you can find lots of wineries but you need to reserve your wine tasting tour in advance. To have a list of the wineries in the area, follow the following links (scroll down each page to see the wineries on the map):
