San Gimignano is a hilltop town North of Siena 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. In recent years the area has also shown an interesting potential for powerful red wines.
This area is very lush and will give you some of the best views of the rolling hills that Tuscany is known for.
The first stop of the morning, will be at the first winery, where we will receive a warm welcome from the Family, who while waiting for us, prepared tasting of specialties like pecorino cheese, fresh bread served with their home made salami, their extra virgin olive oil and a selection of their wines.
After an important introduction about the history of the winery, the family and the tradition of San Gimignano, we will start the visit of the wine cellar, and we will show you the secret of the farm. From production, to bottling, from the fermentation to aging.
After the first Vernaccia experience, with the taste of their wines still on your palate, it will be time for lunch. We will head to the Town of San Gimignano for lunch, where in a traditional Tavern, we will taste the local flavors of the area, before heading back to Siena to the second winery.
