Grape stomping in Tuscan farmhouse

Castellina in Chianti Trip Overview

Harvest has always been seen as a time of celebration in the countryside: the hard work, the cultivating sacrifices, all those efforts are finally paid off with the growth of grape and the exciting time of wine making.
Mechanization was still awaiting to happen, harvest was carried out by whole families, pressing grape with their very feet inside huge wooden vats with great result, as a delicate pressing done with feet does not stress grapes.
This tour is highly recommended for those who want to try a unique experience, while capturing the real essence of living as Tuscan families from the countryside.
A visit to a winery with wine tasting is included; depending on the season guests can pick grapes or simply press grapes previously provided by us. Discover these amazing ancient traditions and get a genuine product of quality.
