Calling all wine lovers! Meet up with your group and depart from Civitavecchia for a daylong excursion to the Cantina Vignaioli del Morellino di Scansano winery in Maremma. This winery is one of 160 members of the Cantina Cooperativa Vignaioli del Morellino di Scansano whose vineyards cover about 600 hectares over the hills surrounding the village of Scansano.

The cooperative was formed in the 1970s when a small group of producers from Scansano decided to join their efforts in the production of wine. Their unrelenting focus on quality required substantial investments and high commitment from those who remained, this results in today award winning wines proudly served at the tables of the clients.

Once in Maremma you will take a tour of the winery and aging cellar where you will learn the history of the famous Morellino di Scansano grape varietal and discover the art of wine production, all the way from harvesting the grapes to bottling the product. Join in on a tasting of 5 different wines paired with local products and a light lunch, then enjoy some free time to relax in the garden and take Insta-worthy photos of the typical Tuscan countryside. Reserve your spot on this special 8.5 hour tour today and get ready for a first hand look into Italian wine making.

Outstanding!!!
October 19, 2022
This was one of the best excursions I have ever been on. We were picked up by Andrea in private car and taken all over Tuscany. Andrea was polite, so accommodating and knowledgeable. On the way to the scheduled vineyards he would let us stop along the way when we wanted to visit other places and take pictures. He was so flexible! The vineyards we visited were just breathtaking and the first one blew us away. The owner sat us down at a private table after taking us on a tour and we could drink as many samples of wine as we wanted…and the pours were not like the samples in America. They were practically full glasses. It was so neat to compare the different vineyards, too, as they were very different. It was the best day of our trip. We loved it so so much. We purchased wine at the end to have sent to us back home and as we drink it here we reflect back on our time in Tuscany. Amazing excursion!!!
