Red Savannah Introduces E-Biking Day Trips in Tuscany

Red Savannah has launched a trio of e-bike trips in Chianti, Tuscany. These one-day, guided e-bike tours are exclusive to guests staying at Red Savannah Villas in Italy. The tours feature routes that highlight the history, villages, people, cuisine and boutique wine estates of Tuscany. All routes are of moderate activity level and include a friendly, knowledgeable guide to provide local insight to the treasures along the way. The tours are ideal for children and adults, with all necessary equipment including e-bikes, safety helmets and an on-call recovery vehicle provided.


Beginning in the hilltop village of Castellina-in-Chianti, this 16-mile journey explores Tuscany’s byways via Chianti Classico vineyards and villages, such as Lilliano, La Strolla and Casastieri. Lunch is at Setriolo, a boutique wine estate managed by the Soderi family since the 19th century. Susanna Soderi will share her family’s fascinating history over lunch, followed by a private tour of the cellars and a tasting. The return ride is rewarded with ice cream from Gelateria di Castellina.


The piazza of Panzano is the starting point for this figure-of-eight tour. After freewheeling towards Greve, guests will turn onto country roads winding through the villages of Castellinuzza, Casole and Lamole. They can rest at the ancient borgo of Castelvecchi where a Signora might be persuaded to drop the keys to the Church of Santa Maria Novella from her balcony. Lunch with views over cords of vines awaits at Podere Terreno, where Cristina manages a small wine and olive oil estate. After lunch the e-bikes take the strain on the climb to Volpaia and along the Traversa di Chianti back to Panzano.


Winding uphill from Greve, the country road leads through ancient fortress villages to Montefioralle. Guests can look out for a door with the emblem of a wasp and a ‘V’ carved into the stone—its former inhabitant is thought to be Amerigo Vespucci, the eponymous discoverer of the New World. Guests can marvel at the frescoes at the ninth-century abbey at Passignano, including Ghirlandaio’s “The Last Supper” before lunch at La Cantinetta di Rignana; the trattoria serves traditional fare accompanied by wines. On the return ride, guests will pass through the hamlet of San Cresci and the aptly named Slow Road to Greve.
