Join Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine on our distinctive bike and wine tour of the Tuscan countryside. Spend your day cycling through picturesque vineyards and serene olive orchards, stopping to explore ancient hilltop villages. Take a moment to immerse yourself in medieval and Renaissance history before enjoying a snack of bruschetta and a taste of Brunello with the locals. Each evening, our private wine tastings will introduce you to the amazing regional nature of Italian wines, as we explore the famous wines of Chianti, as well as lesser known regions such as Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Vernaccia di San Gimignano, along with world-renowned Super Tuscans and Vin Santo.
Every Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine tour is designed and led by owners and expert guides Vernon McClure and Kathy Bechtel. Our small group size (4-8) allows us unparalleled access to small family producers, the opportunity to join the locals at their favorite neighborhood trattoria, or dine at that exclusive ten table ristorante. Together with the personalized attention of our owner/guides Kathy and Vernon, our tours deliver the ideal combination of guided activities with the freedom to relax, enjoy, and experience the spontaneous. We hope you can join us on this unique and intimate Tuscan journey as we explore one of the most beautiful regions in Italy ‘as a local’.
