Private Tour and Wine Tasting at Castle-Wineries in Chianti from Florence

Have you ever dreamt of travelling back in time, in the era of nobles and kings? We can be your back-in-time portal and get you carried away to three of the most ancient and emblematic castles in the heart of Chianti Classico. Nowadays, these estates are not simply castles. Instead, they turned into wineries, that is why they can be regarded as castle-wineries.

Be part of a story of knights and dames, where in times of peace or war, wine was quintessential and always produced to raise the spirits or toast for better times. Apart from visiting estates erected centuries ago, you will also get to taste a wide variety of prestigious wines, that preserved their attributes from the dim and distant past. In terms of food, you will be enjoying a feast "fit for a king", as gourmet lunch is included.

Tuscany, with its enchanted landscapes, castles, fortresses, watchtowers and town walls looming from the mountains to the sea, is the perfect place to realize your desire of time travelling.

    Stop At: Castello di Ama, Localita Ama SNC, 53013, Gaiole in Chianti Italy

    Castello di Ama is a cornerstone of the modern revival of Chianti Classico. The castle, once owned by a famous family during the Holy Roman Empire, was at some point destroyed, but from "its ashes" new dwellings were born. The vineyards around the tiny Medieval hamlet, yield a valuable production. This allowed the winemaker’s ancient craft to take new roots here. Already in the 18th century, Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Tuscany praised Ama’s wines: “around the Castello di Amma,” he wrote, “the best vines in Chianti are to be found, excellently tended.” The winery prides itself with world-awarded wines, characterized by long-lasting traditions.

    You will enjoy a tour of the estate, the vinification plant, aging cellars, the village of Ama with its villas, ancient chapels and gardens. Combined with the preserved ancient character, contemporary art collections are present on the site. The tour ends with a private wine tasting in the Enoteca.
