Chianti Experience

The soul of Tuscany bike tour

Chianti Experience

Experience is not a traveling tour. With our Chianti Experience, guests will enjoy the same accomodation for they whole stay, but will cycle on different roads each day. This offer cyclists the perfect blend of sporting challenge with relaxation.

Castello di Fonterutoli has been the heart and soul of the Marchesi Mazzei story and wine-production for nearly 600 years. Owned by the family since 1435 the estate still retains its original form, that of a tranquil country village, surrounded by 650 hectares of wood, vineyards and olive groves. A cluster of houses, the church of San Miniato and the villa, built at the end of the 1500s, tell the story of a family deeply rooted in the Tuscan tradition.

Castello di Fonterutoli is a unique place where past and present unite and where guests rediscover themselves and the real Tuscany amidst an untouched and breathtaking landscape. The century-old hamlet and wine estate of Castello di Fonterutoli provides the ideal setting for visitors to enjoy Tuscany the way it was meant to be experienced – surrounded by soft, green rolling hills and lush vineyards, sipping elegant wines and indulging in fresh regional cuisine.

From Fonterutoli you'll ride immersed in the heart of Tuscany and you can understand what the Italian wine: the alchemy between art , science and knowledge.

You come out of Fonterutoli Chianti Experience "drunk" of the Tuscany landscape and with a new awareness of what is a winery level, discovering and enjoying the secrets of a production that has been handed down for over six centuries.
