The towns included in the Chianti region are part of the production area of the DOCG Chianti red wine. After the creation and success of the wine area, many of these towns have added the words ‘in Chianti’ to their name, an example is the town of Greve, now Greve in Chianti, which we will visit during our Chianti wine tour from Florence.

Loved the Chianti tour & drive through Florence! The view was fantastic & we loved the wineries. After so many walking tours & days on our feet, this was one of the highlights of our trip & was very relaxing & interesting.
Stop at the Chianti town was too short.
