The Best Vineyards to Visit in Tuscany

Chianti, Brunello, Super Tuscan,Vino Nobile, Vin Santo, Vernaccia—the list of famous Tuscan wines is as long as the region's winemaking heritage is proud. In addition to enjoying the homegrown vintages at restaurants and enoteche across the region, it's a must to visit one of its many working wineries, where you'll learn about the process, sample estate-made wines and olive oils, and wander through lush vineyards—or, in some cases, fly over them in a hot-air balloon. Many of the wineries have been owned by the same families for centuries, so you'll also get to visit historic homes and learn about Tuscany's deep ties to the grape.
