For those who enjoy two of Italy’s favorite past times: wine tasting and shopping at designer outlet malls, this Chianti Wine and Fashion Outlet Tour is created just for you!
You will have the opportunity to shop to your heart’s desire at Tuscany’s most prestigious designer outlet center, "The Mall" where you find top designer labels at bargain prices, followed by a drive through the majestic Chianti countryside for a wine tasting and lunch experience at Vignamaggio Winery and Villa, an enchanting Renaissance Villa and winery with a fascinating legends of Mona Lisa and Leonardo da Vinci.
Your tour will begin with a leisurely drive through the enchanting Tuscan countryside to the exclusive designer outlet shopping center “The Mall” for the ultimate designer shopping experience.
At this unique mall you will find everything from Women’s, Men’s and Children’s top designer labels to high end shoes and accessories available at bargain prices - including Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Dior, Fendi, Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Stella McCartney, Tod’s, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, and more.
After an exciting morning shopping you will continue your tour into the heart of Chianti with breathtaking verdant vistas of soft rolling hills, patchworks of vineyards, silvery olive orchards, and characteristically Tuscan cypress trees.
The drive along windy country roads will take you to the enchanting Vignamaggio Renaissance Villa and Winery for your lunch and wine tasting experience.
Nestled on a soft slope surrounded by acres of vineyards and the Chianti splendor, Vignamaggio is the quintessential Tuscan villa with elegant Italian gardens that evoke fantasies of distant eras whose images we see conveyed on museum masterpieces painted by great Renaissance artists.
Perhaps it is not far from the truth...after all, Vignamaggio is where the woman with the world’s most captivating smile was born to a very noble family: Mona Lisa.
And as though straight from a fairytale book, in a village not far from here a well known artist by the name of Leonardo da Vinci was inspired to paint her portrait, possibly against a landscape very much as the one you are admiring from Vignamaggio.
At Vignamaggio Winery and Villa you have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Tuscan lunch prepared from locally grown products, sample a variety of Chianti wines including the famous Chianti Classico and Chianti Riserva produced at the winery from the grapes of its vineyards, visit the elegant Italian gardens and areas of the villa and winery open to guided visits.
A special treat is a visit to its 700 year old wine cellar where the delightful Chianti wines age in large wooden barrels.
From here you will enjoy a relaxing drive through the beautiful Tuscan countryside back to your accommodation in Florence.
