Take a Wine Holiday in Tuscany

The Tuscan hills are winding, but in the midst of them sit many wineries that provide their world class wines to Italy and to venues all over the world. Fortunately, when you visit Tuscany, you can get the opportunity to test those wines.

Wine tasting events are a lot of fun, but make sure you’re using some sort of public transportation to go to these wine tastings instead of driving your rental car. You’re going to be a lot of tasting, which means you could become too impaired to drive. Even if you don’t feel too impaired, accidents happen, so you don’t want to drive after drinking.

Aside from making sure you have transportation, you do have the opportunity to go on tours that tour the wineries. Some of these tours will provide you with the transportation that you need so that you don’t have anything to worry about in that area. These tours also provide you with the opportunity to cover more area because they are running on a schedule.

Believe it or not, you can take cooking classes that provide you with the opportunity to taste wines. There are also biking tours that will make stops at wineries so that you can have a taste. Granted you may be required to get right back on your bike. However, winery stops are usually the perfect time for bike tourists to stop and take a rest, so don’t expect to get back on the bike. This might be something to consider when booking your tours.

Nevertheless, there are those individuals who take Tuscan vacations just for the wine. If you’re one of those individuals, then you’re in business because you can spend an entire vacation touring wineries and getting a taste. You might be a bit tipsy the whole time, but it is a vacation, so you can do whatever you want to do.
