Tuscany is a famous wine-making region and has been since as far back as the Etruscan Empire. It is the third-most planted area of Italy and is suited to viticulture because of its warm climate and hillside vineyards which receive plenty of direct sunlight.

Some of the most well-known Tuscan wines include Chianti, Carmignano, Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Vin Santo, a dessert wine, is also an acclaimed product of the region.

Wine-tasting and tours are a popular activity for tourists in Tuscany.
