PRIVATE PREMIUM WINE TOUR with a wine expert


San Gimignano is a hilltop town South of Florence famous for its many medieval towers. But it is also the location of one of the most important white wines of Italy named Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the absolute first white wine to receive the DOC status back in 1966.

Now Vernaccia di San Gimignano is Tuscany's only DOCG white wine, and it comes in a young crisp version and in an oak aged Riserva version. The area is also Chianti so area for light reds, and in recent years the area has also shown an interesting potential for more potent red wines.

Sample itinerary (please remember that the tours are customized and will be planned uniquely for you when you book the tour and may change according to availability with our collaborators): We will start thirsty from your accommodation in the morning. On our way we'll introduce you to the region and its history.

This area is very lush and will give you some of the best views of the rolling hills that Tuscany is known for. Our first stop will be at a small chocolate maker where we will have a tasting of artisan chocolate.

Then we will head to an old Enoteca in the village of Colle di Val d'Elsa for a tasting of olive oils and vinegars and talk all about what makes the Tuscan olive oil so unique and wonderful.

We will then pay a quick visit to the town of San Gimignano where we will taste great cheeses and there will be a little free time to visit the village for sight seeing or shopping.

Lunch will be in a family owned saffron farm. A typical Tuscan lunch with fresh produce from the garden will be served. In addition it will be possible to taste the renowned Saffron of San Gimignano DOP and to understand the characteristics of this world renowned saffron.

Then it will be time for a tour and tasting in a wonderful little organic winery within the Vernaccia di San Gimignano region. We will do a tasting of a regular Vernaccia di San Gimignano, a Riserva of Vernaccia and couple of reds typical of the region. We'll return home with full bellies, a happy heart and great memories in time for dinner.

NB. Wine will be served throughout the day :) And if you would rather go to 2 wineries than doing the food stops, we're happy to do that, too. Just let us know!
