Wine produced in Italy is consumed all over the world, with Tuscany’s Chianti region one of the most well-known varieties of Italian wine. The grape-growing region is located not too far from Florence, so if you are looking for homes for sale in Tuscany, it will be easy to take a wine-tasting tour to find your favorite vineyard.
