Tuscan Itineraries for wine, oil & traditional flavors

Tuscany has a reputation for taking food to the next level and with these criteria, they have designated easy to follow itineraries called the Strade del Vino, dell’olio & dei sapori. These themed itineraries offer not just a real road map but also a suggested list of producers located along the route who are committed to respecting their heritage with quality products. This is a fast and easy way to find places to stop for wine tasting those who are enthusiastic about an authentic experience.

The hills, valleys, small towns and large cities in Tuscany, such as the famous wines of Chianti, Montepulciano, Montalcino, and Val d’Orcia, are the caretakers of local traditions and recipes which exalt the natural goodness of its land. When a visitor to the region decides to follow one of these "strade", then they choose to wind and curve through a landscape which connects wine, olive oil and distinct flavors with its folklore, warm hospitality and culture.

The region of Tuscany requires that the creation of the “roads of wine, oil, and flavors” follow strict regulations to guarantee the integrity of the products and safeguard the reputation from imitations & inferior quality.

Reaching from the north of Tuscany near Lucca and the mountains of Lunigiana to the southern borders of the Colli di Maremma and Montecucco, each different itinerary was established to give a "voice" to those who firmly believe that these products represent more than just an economic resource, but rather a way of life to be protected and shared, especially for guests to the region searching for the culture of good wine and food.

The “strade” or roads include more than just wine extending to cover a long list of products such as extra virgin olive oil and a wide range of special recipes, honey, saffron, chestnuts and even treasured and secret recipes for sweets, cheeses, kinds of pasta, and main courses.

With over twenty different designated roads, it is possible to cover all of Tuscany finding excellence for tastings and the purchase of products.
