2017-09-20The Vernaccia di San Giminiano wine tour from Florence
Wow! What a day! My husband and I knew that we wanted to visit a few wineries during our 2 night stay in Florence and narrowed down our choice to Wine Tours with Italy and Wine. The day started with a trip to San Gimignano where the highlight were the views and the delicious gelato! It was extra special for me, since I last visited as a young child. Vittorio, gave us a few quick tips on where to go and what to see (which included the best place to take a panorama and where to get the best gelato). Next we visited a small family owned winery that specialized in white wines. There, the owners daughter/host served us a fantastic Tuscan 3 course meal (best meal we have had so far) and delicious wines to go with each course. She was a wonderful host and gave us a full history of the winery and the wine making process. Overall, it was an intimate experience and we were able to ask all the "stupid questions" that no one feels comfortable asking and had a bonafide wine expert (Vittorio) to tell us the truth! Next, as a great contrast we visited a larger winery that specialized in Chianti wines. Both were phenomenal and we had a case of wine shipped home. This is a MUST DO and worth every penny!!
