We Invite You to Escape With Us to the Beautiful Wine Region of ...
Truer words have never been spoken in my opinion! Italy offers something for everyone and it's so incredibly charming that it almost doesn't feel real at times. There is so much to see and do here, but one of the largest and most well known regions is Tuscany! Centrally located between Florence and the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea, there are beautiful landscapes as far as the eye can see! The region encompasses beautiful beach towns, medieval villages, historic areas, castles, incredible dining, stunning resorts, spas and more. But, when most people think of life under the Tuscan sun, they think of wine!
Home to some of the world's oldest and most notable wine regions, there are endless vineyards to explore!
~ Well Known Wine Regions ~
For a wine to retain the name "Chianti," it must be produced with at least 80% Sangiovese grapes. "Chianti Classico" comes from the largest area of Chianti, located on the original land where it was produced. Look for a black rooster seal on the neck of a wine bottle, known in Italian as gallo nero, in order to identify these special wines.
This region of Tuscany has one of the warmest and driest climates, and is known for their Brunello di Montalcino wine. Made from 100% Sangiovese, the wine goes through an extended maceration period to add color and flavor from the grape skins.
Vernaccia is a white wine produced in and around this beautiful medieval town. The Vernaccia grapes in this region are planted in sandstone based vineyards which lend dry notes, crisp acidity, and a sightly bitter finish. It's an easy drinking, every day wine for residents of this region.
~ There's So Much Beyond the Vines in Tuscany ~
This charming city is full of art, history, and culture along their cobblestone streets. It's all walkable with the beautiful Arno River running through it all and great bites around every corner!
Forte Dei Marmi
Known for their beaches, this seaside town offers beautiful views of the sea and the Apuan Alps. Stroll around the chic town and enjoy the tree-lined streets, premium shopping and fine dining!
The streets of this charming little town are so small that it's best to get around on foot or bikes. They have the most churches per capita in Italy, making for stunning scenery as you cruise!
There is so much more to see here than you may think. After you get your quintessential picture with the Leaning Tower of Pisa, stroll around to enjoy unique architecture, botanical gardens, and more!
