How it Works
This private Rome Tuscany day trip is offered Monday through Saturday.

We design day trips from Rome to Southern Tuscany for first-time winery visitors, wine novices, or collectors! During the booking process, you will be able to tell our Italian-based team when and what you would like to tour. You will also have the opportunity to tell us how we can customize the tour to meet your wine preferences and experiential expectations. With that in mind, we will create the perfect one day Tuscany tour from Rome for you and yours. An exclusive Italy wine tour curated to your preferences.

Do you combine people to share the tour?

All our tours are private and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else.

Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.

Which wineries will we visit?

There is no set schedule of wineries. With so many wonderful wineries in this area, there is no reason to put on a one size fits all wine tour.

In addition, unlike many vineyards around the world, wineries in Italy mostly operate by appointment only. Because wine estates require reservations for a set time we will customize your tour to take advantage of the best winery experiences available on that day – as appointments are usually necessary and they all have different days of operation and special event scheduling – and other factors, such as location considerations and our knowledge of great tasting experiences.

May we pick the wineries?

If there are specific wineries you would like to see, we will start there. We are happy to schedule your tasting appointments with the wineries of your choice. Same thing if you have particular types of wine or particular experiences you would like to try.

We will do our best to accommodate any specific requests, providing those wineries will grant the appointments that day – as appointments are usually necessary and they all have different days of operation and special event scheduling – and that the tour itinerary is logistically feasible. Please include your desired wineries in your initial email inquiry.

How long will we spend at each winery?

No set time. Some winery experiences take longer than others. The average is about an hour and a half at each winery. Winery visits and tastings in Italy have a different time scale and etiquette than in the U.S. where you sip and go. Instead, here are unrushed, seated and personalized opportunities to learn about the wines of the region and each winemaker’s unique approach.

Are tastings included in the itinerary price?

Each travel experience is unique which is why each private wine tour is tailored to your specific preferences. You will try the food and wine YOU crave.

With so many wonderful wineries in this area, there is no reason to put on a canned wine tour. As there are endless options for you to choose from we give you the opportunity to decide how much and what YOU want to try. Therefore, you should expect to pay tasting fees at the wineries.

Tasting fees are extra, set by the wineries, and payable on the spot. Prices will depend on your individual preferences including the number and variety of wines tasted. But wine tasting fees can also vary widely from one winery to another.

Are your private vehicles licensed and insured?

Yes. All of our vehicles are officially licensed and insured.

Are your private vehicles non-smoking? Air conditioned?

Yes. All of our vehicles are non-smoking and air-conditioned.

Are tips included?

Tips are optional. Gratuity is not included and is left to individual discretion.
