Wine in Florence, Tuscany


Florentine and Tuscan Wines are very famous all around the world, thanks to the wine production areas that surround Florence, like the most famous: Chianti.

A glass of Tuscan Red Wine

Florence wine tasting and tours

Two of the main noble families of Florence, Antinori and Frescobaldi, began producing wine 8 centuries ago. They have been great rivals ever since.

In Florence you can visit a "Cantina" (Wine cellar) to enjoy a delightful wine tasting or winery tour inside an "Enoteca" (Wine bar). In these wineries you can taste: Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, or the famous Ornellaia.

However you don't need to enter a winery to taste a good wine, because in Florence you can find a "vinaino" (small stand where you can sip a glass of wine and taste some "aperitivo" outside, in the street) in every corner in the city center.

It is also possibile to have a Wine Tour with an expert guide to taste some of the fineste wines in the world.

Curiosity: the Buchette.

Wine hole in Florence: the BuchetteAncient Florence often offers queer secrets, not always easy to decipher as the explanation is always tied to the history, habits and traditions of the town.

Walking through the city, walking the streets of the center you will run into small holes, the "Buchette", on the ground floor of aristocratic palaces: they were used to sell wine produced on farms owned by the noble families living in the palaces.

The practice of selling wine directly from the "buchette" dates from the seventeenth century. The "Buchette" were also used for charity: at night it was customary to leave inside of the holes a bit of bread and a jug of wine for beggars.
