WHAT TO EXPECT

Our private day trip to Tuscany from Rome is perfect for discerning travelers who prefer out of the way places away from the crowds. Indeed, the Maremma is one of the unexpected finds still to be unveiled in Italy. While everyone knows about Chianti only a few experience the wild untamed marshlands of the Maremma still untouched by mass tourism. The beautiful Maremma area stretches between Rome and Florence. Easy to get from Rome, in fact you will need no more than a two-hour ride (traffic pending) and it has a lot to show and plenty of good stories to tell!

There is so much art and history to soak up in Rome, that it is easy to forget about what is waiting just outside the city limits. This tour takes you out into the beautiful natural surroundings to enjoy a mixture of medieval villages and vineyard experiences. Though Maremma is best known for its amazing Morellino di Scansano, we have handpicked a selection of wineries that offer a rich variety of reds and whites. You will visit either two or three wineries.

Get off the beaten tourist path. Explore an authentic slice of Italian culture and rural life.

Which wineries will we visit?

There is no set schedule of wineries that we visit, as there are so many great ones! The Maremma wine tasting options are endless so 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 we go to?

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?

Our pricing does not include tasting fees. With so many wonderful wineries in this area, there is no reason to put on a canned wine tour. Nevertheless, we give you the opportunity to decide how much and what YOU want to try. Therefore, we recommend bringing a little cash with you on your tour.
