Tour Description

The hills around Carmignano, which have been home to the Etruscans and the Medici, are filled with vineyards.

This wine region has been much loved by winemakers for centuries as the soil always produces a fruitful yield.

The Carmignano production area was chosen by the Grand Duke Cosimo III de’ Medici, in 1716, as one of the 4 wine growing areas of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.

In the 18th century, the producers of the Carmignano region invested a tradition of their own, blending Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, long before the practice became popularized by the “Super Tuscan”.

This wonderful experience includes a wine tasting, lunch and the opportunity to buy some of the best Tuscan wines.

On our tour, we will visit two wineries where you’ll receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.

The first winery is a private villa that was used as early as 1440 by the Medici family as a hunting lodge.

The second winery dated A.D. 804: it is a lease document showing that vines and olives were cultivated for the production of wine and oil as far back as 1200 years ago.
