Sunday afternoon was free time so Jim and I set up a private wine tasting tour. Our guide stopped at the American cemetery where over 4,000 WWII soldiers are buried.
Next onto a Piazza in the small town of Chianti. We complained that we wanted wine tasting not shopping, so headed to a winery. Tasted 3 of their wines which were OK but not great. We are in the Chianti Classico wine region.
Our main stop was at the Brogioni Maurizio winery where we met with the owner of this very small winery. He took us into the vineyard to see the grapes that will be harvested within the next month and also the olive trees that they produce olive oil from. From there we saw his processing operation then to the most important part tasting.
