Our second day together is all about the joys of white wine, in particular, the delectable Tuscan drop Vernaccia.
To begin our day, we will take a drive through the stunning countryside around San Gimignano and through Castelvecchio National Park, stopping at two family-run local wineries to taste some wonderful regional wines and food.
The white wine known as Vernaccia or Vernaccia di San Gimignano is famous worldwide and is considered one of the very best wines made in Tuscany. It is made using the Vernaccia wine grape and comes from the medieval town of San Gimignano. During the town’s heyday, the wine was the favourite of aristocrats throughout Italy. It was and is known not just for its taste but also its association with San Gimignano, famed for its amazing medieval towers. In San Gimignano’s records, the Vernaccia grape is first mentioned as far back as 1276 and Dante writes about it in his Divine Comedy. It is believed that its name comes from the Latin ‘vernaculum’, or ‘of the place’, and thus shares the same Latin root as ‘vernacular’ in English.
Our afternoon will be spent in the town of San Gimignano itself where you will be able to discover its medieval buildings and impressive towers at your leisure. You can even climb one of the towers for a breath-taking panoramic view of the town and surrounding valley. When San Gimignano was at the height of its powers, the town’s noble families built approximately 72 towers to show off their influence and affluence. Now, just 14 remain but they still imbue the town with an authentic feudal feel and unique aesthetic.
We will enjoy dinner at a local trattoria to the farmhouse.
On our final day, we will savour some delicious Tuscan reds. Brunello di Montalcino is a wonderful wine considered to be among the best red wines worldwide. Today, we will visit Montalcino to learn about this famous drop and visit a renowned winery and cellar for lunch.
After lunch, we will travel to the celebrated medieval village of Montepulciano, a place bursting with history in a region famous for its vibrant summer fairs and festivals.
In Montepulciano, we will soak up the village’s rich history with a tour of the city walls. Here, you will see artisans shaping copper in their stores using authentic techniques. You will also see traditional enoteche, or wine shops, which we will visit for a look at their fantastic bottles of the good stuff.
To conclude your tour, you will be dropped off at your Florence hotel before we say our goodbyes and wish you well for whatever else awaits you on your Italian adventure.
Incredibly Real Experience.
We loved our Tuscany Untouched Tour. We did a 3 night Bespoke experience and it was a highlight of our honeymoon. The farmhouse accommodation Matteo organized was so unique and charming; Oscar our host was very helpful and nice.
Our private day trip with Daniel was sensational, he was a very thoughtful & intelligent guide. He taught & showed us so much of Tuscany.
Then on our free day, Matteo booked us in for a tasting lunch and provided a great itinerary for us.
We recommend this for any wine & food lover. Experience Tuscany in an authentic & real way.
My daughter and I recently did this amazing 3 day fully escorted tour around Tuscany, visiting wineries on each day but in three different regions of Tuscany (a surprise to us as we thought Tuscany was one region and that wines would all be similar). We also had a interest in authentic Italian food, and other land-based industries in the region. We asked many questions and were given very comprehensive answers. Matteo (our guide) took the trouble to add two other visits to our itinerary following our questions about beef cattle and beaches. He added a visit to a beef cattle farm one day and the following day took us to the beach.
A highlight of our trip was the unexpected opportunity to have dinner near our farmhouse accommodation with the local community at their Zolfino Bean Festival. We became Italians for the night, casually sharing an authentic meal outdoors in a marquee, using plastic plates and cups and being waited on by members of the community who also cooked the meal for us and about 200 others. Tremendous fun and an experience we will never forget.
We highly recommend Tuscany Untouched Tours and this wine tour to anyone wanting to see the Tuscany where few tourists venture. The itinerary was varied, the wine tastings comprehensive and detailed, food experiences met our expectations and the farmhouse accommodation excellent.
Thanks Matteo – you added a personal touch to our tour, obviously love your native country/region and bent over backwards to make sure we had a great time.
PS – if you book a tour – ask Matteo to show you how to make real Garlic Bread!
