Vernaccia di San Gimignano Wine Tour

White and red wines together, stroll around a medieval hilltop town.

San Gimignano Wine Tours from Florence

Guided Tour in Guide Tour in English

Tuscany is known for the excellent red wines but few know this small region called San Gimignano where it is also produced an exceptional white wine named Vernaccia. This is a dry wine, not very aromatic but with great structure.


Highlights
  • Full day tour with English speaking driver.
  • Discover 2 quality wineries in Chianti Classico and San Gimignano wine region
  • Wine tastings of Chianti Classico, Riserva, Super Tuscans, Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
  • Olive Oil Tasting
  • Enjoy a delicious typical Tuscan meal at a small winery.
  • A quick stop in San Gimignano, an historical medival hill top town.

San Gimignano is the region for you if you like white wines more than reds. Since the wine region lies very close to Chianti Classico usually I suggest sharing the wine day tour among both the regions. We could stop in a winery in Chianti Classico to enjoy the reds and then we drive to San Gimignano to enjoy this great white wine. 

What to expect

The stop at the first winery is also the excuse to get know a little bit more about the winemaking process, you will explore the cellar with one of the staff of the winery who is very knowledgeable and passionate about the wine.

You will taste 3 or 4 wines of the top productions and labels. Usually in Tuscany wineries produce also an excellent extra-virgin olive oil, so you will also taste some of the best olive oil of Tuscany.
San Gimignano is about 1 hr drive from Florence so the second winery is a little bit further afield, anyway no worry the region where we will be driving is one of the best and breathtaking of Tuscany.

The second cellar produces the famous Vernaccia di San Gimignano and you can taste the simple version and the reserve that normally ages in small oak barrels for 4/6 months. After a quick cellar tour, we will sit down to enjoy a delicious home-cooked lunch matched with the different wines produced at the winery. Olive oil on the table is made at the winery itself with the olive trees grown on the property.

Stroll in San Gimignano

After the second cellar, we will stop to visit the beautiful San Gimignano a real jewel of the Middle Ages. You will have time to walk through the cobbled streets and stop to photograph the beautiful medieval towers or you can enjoy a homemade ice cream produced by one of the most famous ice-cream shops in Italy.
