We have two Eroica options available and they bookend our Tuscany Gravel Explorer tours in the Spring and the Fall. The Spring options is a relatively new addition to the Eroica stable and focusses on our favourite wine region - Montalcino. The Fall option is the classic Eroica that is centered around Gaiole in Chianti.
