Join us for a memorable tour through the Chianti Rufina region, east of Florence. The Rufina is the best known Chianti area after the the Chianti Classico. Pilgrims traveling along the ancient Roman stone roads that cross high mountains found peace and hospitality in convents and wineries. The castle of Pomino and the Frescobaldi estates are points of interest in this little-known area, but we focus particularly on the new wine makers who create noteworthy wines in their small artisanal wineries. Here, a new generation is turning the slowly ripening grapes of this more mountainous and cooler region into high-quality wines, changing the image of the Chianti Rufina wine in the world.
