First time on a wine tour, and loved every minute. Have nothing to compare against yet, but highly recommend the wine tour and the area. The views from the Castello Vicchiomaggio were simply amazing

It was a great experience and we now find ourselves checking each bottle of wine we drink for whether it is cask or barrel aged, aromas, and for the Rooster!

My Cindy booked our tour with Chris while staying Florence and it was truly one of the best parts of our visit to Italy. Chris’s knowledge of not only the wines and olives grown at each vineyard but also the food and local history made it an even a more fulfilling tour. We travel to Europe every year and the... More

We had an amazing time on our wine tour of the Chianti region with Chris! What a wonderful, personable, and knowledgeable guide! My husband and I were the only people to book the day we did, so we had a private wine tour and spent a lovely day of our honeymoon learning from and getting to know Chris! The countryside... More

Spent a most enjoyable day with Chris and we enjoyed every moment. Not only does Chris know her wines, she is great company! She was most professional in dealing with all our requirements and from when she collected us in the morning from our accommodation, she ensured we had a very informative time; she really understands the local culture and...

As a follow up to my original review below, I am extremely pleased to report that our tour exceeded our already high expectations. Chris is very personable and knows her wines very well. The wineries chosen were all very good and by American standards the wines were well priced – we came home with several bottles as well as some... More

We just had our wine tour with Chris - Fantastic tour to 3 exceptional vineyards, great local Tuscan full blown lunch (included in tour), and awesome/friendly/helpful guide. Must choose Dolce Chianti for your Tuscany wine educational needs.

Great chatting with Chris and introduction of the Chianti Classico region. Although I still could not differentiate the smells at the end of the session, it's ok! It's really the process of learning from Chris, enjoying the company and appreciating the wine that matters. :)

We booked a tour with Chris based on all of the amazing reviews and she did not disappoint! Besides being extremely knowledgeable about wine, she is just a great person to spend the day with. We learned about Chianti, tried some great wines and had a nice, relaxing lunch (the risotto was excellent!). I would highly recommend Chris to anyone... More
