The typical conception of Italy’s wine country is usually sitting on the veranda of a Tuscan villa, sipping red wine while overlooking the rolling vineyards. There’s nothing wrong with that idyllic scene, but to spice things up a bit and get the most out of wine country, take the sipping show on the road with an Italy wine tour via bicycle.
Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be on a Tour de France pace. On most tours, cyclists will be pedaling at a leisurely pace down some of the Italian wine country’s most bucolic landscapes, visiting old villages, and tasting local wine and food along the way. Nearly all cycle-based Italy wine tours come with a support vehicle to carry your wine, carry you, or carry both, if you end up tasting one too many varietals.
These are the best Italy wine tours on two wheels.
