Day 1

Fly from your chosen airport, any time that suits you! Sip champagne as you board a luxury private jet. Leave in the morning and you’ll be in the heart of the Chianti vineyards within a few hours. Surrounded by 140 hectares of vineyards with striking views, narrow streets, picturesque squares, a Romanesque chapel and shrines, this is one the most charming sites in the Chianti region. That evening unwind with a fabulous Tuscan tasting menu!

Day 2

Beautiful Tuscany will take your breath away with its scenery fine dining and wine; Italian wines have improved at an astonishing pace and not only will you be tasting some of the famous super Tuscans like the Villa Antinori Rosso, but you will be savouring some of the best Italian cooking as the two go delightfully hand in hand.

Day 3

Enjoy breakfast on the terrace, before being whisked off to the airport as Rioja reds now await! After arriving at the architecturally stunning Hotel Marques de Riscal, you’ll enjoy your first Rioja wine tasting at a cellar dating from 1858. Then make use of the extensive spa and gym facilities at the hotel before an extraordinary eight-course Michelin Star dinner at one of the top restaurants in Spain.

Leaving the Arabadia Mountains behind you, it’s time to visit Bordeaux for and enjoy more world famous Grand Cru Wines. That evening you will indulge in a spectacular two star Michelin tasting menu paired with Grand Cru Wines with each course.

Day 6

The second day of your Bordeaux wine tasting trip is devoted to the majestic Médoc. Along with your English-speaking guide you’ll follow the famous “route des châteaux”, stopping for tastings at two prestigious classified growth châteaux along the way including an exclusive lunch in a 2nd growth château.

Very well organised trip to Tuscany, getting in 2 wine regions. Lovely hotel with amazing view. The best part was our guide Paula who ensured our wine tasting tours were with smaller wineries which have authenticity and care for the environment. Highly recommend SmoothRed!
