What to Expect

Sprawling vineyards, olive trees and cypresses surrounding churches, parishes, castles and villages hidden among the hills, all add up to the Chianti Classico wine region being one of the best places to visit in Tuscany with kids. From the stunning scenery to wineries where kids receive a warm welcome, discover the many treasures this incredible region holds for travelers of all ages. Designed for children and their lucky parents, this carefully planned family friendly Tuscany wine tour will engage the whole clan with tried and tested local wineries and striking natural beauty.

 

Families visiting Florence can’t resist the allure of the Chianti wine region, and for good reason. The area renowned for its exceptional wines is also home to monumental castles, medieval farmhouses and ancient hill-towns many of which remain almost exactly as they were in the 1300’s. Additionally, the Chianti is also well known for having an array of kid-friendly wineries that will be perfect for a day trip for the family.

 

Treat your tribe to an enjoyable adventure that combines education, visits and tastings on wine, cheese and olive oil. The Tuscan countryside may be an area known for fine dining and wine appreciation, but it’s still an easy-going, family-friendly destination which offers fun distractions for adults and kids. It makes for a spectacular road trip with unspoiled views and medieval hill towns to stop by. Nevertheless, families can also learn how grapes are turned into wine, how wine gets its color and how long it takes to produce. Among the large historic properties and smaller boutique wineries in the region, we arrange visits to vineyards and farms where kids are welcome and parents can indulge in tastings.

 

On this family friendly Tuscany wine tour, you will visit a sustainable farm and wine estate which are as well-known for their lovable farmyard animals as for their great range of wines, extra virgin olive oil and homemade produce. Enjoy a kid-friendly winery lunch stop before exploring one of the hilltop villages that dot this magical area. After a day of unforgettable memories, return to Florence along scenic country roads.

Tour FAQs

How many wineries will we visit?

For relaxed private tastings, it is highly recommended to visit no more than two wineries per day. This is to prevent you from rushing from one winery to another and lessening the whole Tuscany winery experience.

How long will we spend at each winery?

No set time. Some winery experiences take longer than others. The average is about 90-120 minutes at each winery for the full experience, as you see firsthand where wine is produced, learn about the wine making process, and taste some of the estates' wines.

Which wineries will we visit on our Family Friendly Tuscany Wine Tour?

Our focus is on the family-friendly wineries that are small enough to give us that personalized attention and of course, great tasting experiences, beautiful vineyard settings, and friendly hospitality. Visits are mostly by appointment only. We arrange winery appointments based on several factors, some of which include, your wine preferences, the time of year, the day of the week and available wineries for the day (as they all have different days of operation and special event scheduling).

Are wine tasting fees included?

No, they are not. Wine tasting fees are your responsibility and they typically start from Euro 20 and upward per person per winery depending on your choice. We work with different wineries, each with its own unique pricing and experiences. Because each wine tasting tour is unique to each party, each tour will have different tasting fees. The wine tasting fees will be collected at each stop by the winery.

Do you have a set itinerary for your family friendly Tuscany wine tours?

The family tour is private and therefore allows for customization. Our flexible itinerary ensures a personalized, intimate experience, with a focus on the smaller, boutique wineries where the passion and flavors are even more apparent. For families who love animals we visit kid-friendly wineries with four-legged friends. We do not visit the same wineries every day, our expert driver-guides tailor each day from over 70 cellar doors in the Chianti wine region to help create a special, memorable day for the whole family.

Who are your driver-guides?

Our local driver-guides are licensed tour escorts and professional chauffeurs with several years of experience in sharing their insider knowledge of regional culture with our clients. They’re all gifted storytellers who are smart, passionate and talented and whose excitement for this region is contagious! Not to mention, they know all the shortcuts and are familiar with the hidden corners en route. You can also count on the quality of our driver-guides, handpicked for their enthusiasm and fun factor.
