Vernaccia di San Gimignano wine tasting trip
David Wight
GBR
We were desperate to do a wine tour when we visited Florence and the decision to book on this tour was a great decision! When we arrived in the morning, due to certain circumstances we were lucky enough to get a private tour (the two of us) all to ourselves despite planning a shared tour. Vittorio took us for the day and we were lucky to have a such a great host and someone so knowledgeable about wine. Started by driving for about 50 minutes to visit the town of San Girmignano which was a lovely medieval town with stunning views over Tuscany. We then headed to our first winery where we were given a tour of the vineyard and cellar and given some insight into how they produce their wines. The host at this particular wine yard was brilliant and we were treated to a delicious three course lunch based on the saffron they grow at the vineyard. We tasted a different white wine with each course which were great and event converted me as a red wine drinker. Hearing that I preferred drinking red wine, they also brought out a taster of the red wine they produce which was a nice touch. We then headed off for another wine tasting at the second winery where we tasted around 8 wines in total, a variety of white and red. Again, the quality of the wine was great and the host was very knowledgeable. All in all, this was one of the highlights of our trip. Thanks to Vittorio and the hosts at both wineries!
