Food and wine trekking, a new way to travel

In recent years, hiking tourism and food and wine tourism in Tuscany have gained an increasing number of enthusiasts, including from abroad, generating a new form of travel: food and wine trekking.

The goal of this “new” tourism is to enhance the historical and scenic heritage together with food and local traditions, promoting the discovery of the many excellences of the territory and lesser-known places.

food & wine trekking” consequently supports the philosophy of Slow Tourismwhich is also becoming increasingly popular in Italy and abroad: a new way of traveling that is so appreciated that it is gradually turning into a real way of life, capable of combining the beauty of places, human- and environment-friendly rhythms of visiting and original experiences.

Experiencing a day trip or a multi-day trek to discover the most authentic territory of Chianti thus allows each tourist not only to get to know places, wineries, products and flavors never tried before, but also to do so in a more dynamic and engaging way.

Experiential outdoor tourism in Chianti

It was precisely to Tuscany, on the occasion of the International Tourism Exchange (BIT) in Milan, that the Best Green Destination Italy award was given as part of the Gist Green Travel Award 2022 for excellence in sustainable and responsible tourism. In particular, thanks to new initiatives related to the region’s cycling and walking routes and related “atlases.”

And Chianti really does offer numerous destinations and outdoor experiences for those seeking a food and wine vacation in Tuscany: enchanting walks among rolling hills, timeless villages, vineyards and olive groves so beautiful they remind one of landscapes in a painting.

Spending a few days of relaxation, in the lands of the Black Rooster, combining trekking with original experiences among artistic, oenological, gastronomic and artisanal treasures will thus allow you to get to know and enjoy the beauty of a unique scenery, a very high cultural-historical heritage and the pleasures offered by the local food and wine. A true full immersion in the beauty of Tuscany.
