Welcome to Angie's Tuscan Wine Tours! Touring the wineries of Tuscany since 2003
I'm Angela Saltafuori from the Tuscan wines territory of Italy. I am a licensedTuscan wine tour guide and certified Tuscan wine sommelier ready to accompany you on enjoyable and interesting minibus wine tasting tours in Tuscany. I offer both private and shared guided Tuscan wine tours and I can promise you an enjoyable and educational visit to the wineries, vineyards and wine estates of Chianti and the whole of Tuscany.
My guided tours through Tuscany are not exclusively wine tours. We see and visit a great deal of historical architecture here in Tuscany as well as picturesque Tuscan villages and the beautiful countryside itself - the terraced and forested hills of Chianti and the wide-open spaces of the Val d'Orcia in southern Tuscany. Wine is the central theme of my shared tours but a private tour can be created to match your personal interests. From the gardens of Tuscany to the Renaissance villas of the Medici, from Tuscan saffron cultivation to pecorino (ewes' milk cheese) - just ask!

Chianti and Super Tuscan wine tour, 4 Tuscan winery visits in one day Chianti, Florence-Siena area
On this tour, we will be visiting the Chianti region, going to boutique, organic wineries, driving through amazing landscapes, and eating and drinking only organic local food and wine.
Rather than a traditional lunch, we will be enjoying appetizers including salumi, cheese and bruschette paired with the appropriate wines at each winery. I guarantee that you will not return to Florence hungry.
Our great day starts when we meet in Florence at convenient location, and after introducing one another we board a comfortable minibus with AC and wi-fi, ready for fun and a relaxed wine adventure in Tuscany countryside.
We will arrive at the first organic boutique winery where you will be welcomed by the wine producer who will take us around the vineyards explaining the grape varieties, the pruning, the soil and vine cultivation. We will then hear all aboutthe wine-making process in the cellar and finally it will be time to get to know their superb wines paired with their local organic foods.
As soon as we have finished enjoying all of their products, we will be ready for our second wine adventure. At the next winery, which has a gorgeous view, we will have the second wine tasting paired with homemade snacks.
There is no time for taking a nap in this relaxing and beautiful winery, because the owner of the third winery is waiting for us in his new village wine shop.
After several wine tastings, we will head towards the fourth and last winery, visiting a XII century wine cellar, a XIV century olive mill and enjoying our final delicious and renowned red wines of Tuscany.
