Touring the Italian countryside by vintage Jeep is a great way to spend the day — add in multiple wine tastings and Tuscan lunch and you’ve got the makings for a perfect afternoon.

That’s the vision of the team at Il Salviatino, an exclusive, five-star hotel in Tuscany. The hotel, which is located in a 15th-century villa, takes care of all the details, so guests can focus their energies on the important stuff: drinking, eating, and of course, sightseeing.

The five-hour adventure is an ongoing tour of Tuscany’s most impressive sights — remote Chianti backroads, panorama views, and Tuscan hills — with stops at some of Italy’s most impressive vineyards.

The tour includes stops at three wineries where guests have the opportunity to talk in depth with winery owners (who may be convinced to spill a few wine-making secrets!). During winery stops, guests will enjoy 15 wine tastings and three Grappa tastings — while three EVOO tastings, a honey tasting, and a Tuscan lunch help round out the afternoon.

The boozy, culture-filled tour is $435 a person and includes transportation via vintage Jeep, all tastings, and lunch. To book, email info@salviatino.com.
