San Gimignano and Chianti Classico wine tour

San Gimignano wine tour

About this Tour...

San Gimignano is the famous town known worldwide as “the town of hundred towers” and it still maintains its original features and timeless charm. Furthermore, the name “San Gimignano” is linked to one of the most historical Tuscan wines: La Vernaccia di San Gimignano. I would love to guide you through my territory!
First of all, we need to stop in a vineyard to fully understand the origins of this ancient nectar. Then we will visit my family winery including, of course, the cellar where the secrets of wine making will be illustrated to you and finally we will taste six wines, both whites and reds, accompanied by bruschette (bread) with extra-virgin olive oil.

Our day continues with a tasty light lunch prepared with local, genuine ingredients. In the afternoon we will visit the precious production zone of Chianti Classico which is only a short drive from San Gimignano. The famous symbol of the Black Rooster will guide us along the discovery of the original Chianti Classico. Chianti Classico is made with Sangiovese grapes which are grown exclusively in this wonderful territory between Florence and Siena. Also Chianto Classico can be proud of its long history: the first written documents date back to the end of the 14th century, but the territory called “Chianti” has produced wine since the 10th century and actually the Tuscan rural culture started to develop in this area.
At the end of the day, time permitting, we will visit one of the medieval towns of the zone.
