Visiting A Vineyard in Tuscany: What You Should Know

Visiting a vineyard isn’t always on the to-do list when you’re visiting an exciting, new place. However, visiting a vineyard in Tuscany is a whole different story. Skipping the wine in Tuscany is like skipping the Eiffel Tower in France.

Here’s what you need to know before planning your trip.

Book A Guided Tour

For the perfect Tuscany Vineyard tour The Roman Guy is the only way to go. Your driver, who speaks perfect English and also serves as a knowledgeable guide, will pick you up at your accommodations in a top-end air-conditioned vehicle. With The Roman Guy, getting to the vineyard is half the fun! The tour and vineyard will be expertly chosen so as to provide you with a one-on-one experience with the owner of the estate.

 

It’s A Little Different Over There

For those of you experienced wine lovers, you may have already visited wineries or vineyards in the United States. However, things are done a little differently in Tuscany. First, most wineries and vineyards in the U.S. welcome unscheduled visits, but it is often understood that you to make prior reservations in Tuscany and stick to them. Also, the large, fully-staffed wineries in the U.S. can seem monumental compared to the much smaller, usually family-run, vineyards in Tuscany. Finally, it is considered good taste to purchase at least a few bottles if you take part in any wine tasting throughout your visit.

Prepare To Be Stunned

The first thing you need to know, is that vineyards are not just endless, fields of grapes that you can sufficiently experience from any passenger seat. Your expectations will be far exceeded when you witness the craftsmanship, creativity, and care that goes into many of the vineyards in Tuscany. Nearly every aspect of vineyards is worth your attention. The grounds, which are carefully groomed, are typically stunning. Vineyards are a great way to immerse yourself in the famous Tuscan countrysides that have rightfully gained so much attention.

Experience The History

The aged wines are not the only history in most vineyards. More often than not, there is a rich history that surrounds the properties, from the architecture to the art to the people, you’ll get an insider’s view of Tuscany and its past.

Don’t Forget Your Map

The enchanting, Tuscan countryside that you’ve probably read about is where most of these exquisite vineyards are located. Many of them can be found alongside twisting, country roads that can also be difficult to navigate if you’re just visiting. To make matters slightly more challenging, there are rarely helpful signs to guide you or ease your troubles. Be sure to bring a map or some sort of navigation with you when you touring the countryside.

There’s A Variety

Tuscany is a great place to experience the world of wine because it is home to so many different types. The region is much larger than it appears; therefore, there are plenty of options and opportunities when it comes to wine in Tuscany. Do a little research before setting out to find what will suit you the best. Also, consider a guided tour with The Roman Guy if you’re worried about driving or navigating after you’ve had a few sips of wine. This often allows you to experience a range of wines and locations, which can be challenging if you’re unfamiliar with the area.
