Vernaccia di San Gimignano Wine Tour

Blending the bold red of Chianti with the crisp white of San Gimignano - lunch with saffron menu.

San Gimignano wine tours from Florence

Guided Tour in English

For those who like to dabble in different types of wine, this trip is for you! With one winery dedicated to the world-famous red Chianti and the other one to the venerated white Vernaccia of San Gimignano, this trip truly provides the best of both worlds.


Highlights
  • Small-Group tour, a maximum of 8 people.
  • Guided 7 hr excursion by our English speaking wine expert.
  • Discover two quality wineries with tastings of Chianti, and Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
  • Learn by a professional Sommelier how to approach wine and olive oil.
  • Enjoy a delicious 3-course fresh meal in a small winery.

Located near the quaint town of San Gimignano, the first vineyard will give you the opportunity to experience one of the most celebrated white wines in Italy, the Vernaccia di San Gimignano. After the tasting, you have the opportunity to make a quick foray into the town of San Gimignano to experience the medieval architecture, shop at the local stores, and sample world famous gelato. 

A homemade lunch with fresh ingredients and saffron dishes with pasta or rice. Saffron is a spice which comes from a flower, a genus in the family Iridaceae. The English word saffron comes from the Latin Safranaum, which in turn derives from the Arabic word jafaran, which in turn derives from the adjective Asfar, "yellow". Saffron is perfect foil with fish, vegetables, and white meats. 

Your day goes ahead by making your way through the hills of Tuscany to Chianti area where you will visit a small family-owned vineyard. Here you will have the opportunity to meet the winegrower who will show you everything you need to know about the winemaking process. After a visit to the cellar, you will begin your tasting experience with tips and techniques from your guide on how to best taste the wine.
