Day 2: Vernaccia of San Gimignano

Today is going to be a white wine day, dedicated to La Vernaccia Tuscan wine.

In the morning, we will drive around the countryside of San Gimignano and Castelvecchio National Park and, along the way, we will have an opportunity to sample stunning wines and delicious food at two of the great wineries that are run by local families.

Vernaccia di San Gimignano stands out among the top wines of Tuscany. Vernaccia-based wine from San Gimignano has a long established history, and throughout the Renaissance period, local Vernaccia was widely considered to be the noblest wine in Italy. Its fame is undoubtedly connected to its region of origin, San Gimignano—an ancient Tuscan town that is famed for its medieval towers. The Vernaccia wine grape is mentioned as early as 1276 in San Gimignano’s records and Dante’s Divine Comedy. Its name is thought to originate from the word vernaculum, which means ‘of the place’ and is the etymological root of the English word ‘vernacular.’

In the afternoon, we will progress to the beautiful village of San Gimignano, where you can have some free time to explore this stunning Tuscan town. San Gimignano  is famous for its fascinating medieval architecture and lofty towers from which visitors can enjoy impressive views of the city from the surrounding valley. At the height of its glory, San Gimignano’s patrician families had built around 72 tower houses as a symbol of their wealth and power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano still retains its feudal atmosphere and magical appearance.

We will end the first day of the tour at a local Tuscan trattoria, where we will enjoy dinner before heading back to the accommodation.

Day 3: Brunello wine & Nobile wine

Today, we will visit Montalcino, which is renowned for Brunello di Montalcino, a red wine that is widely regarded as one of the top three red wines in the world. You’ll have an opportunity to learn more about this wine with a visit to one of the region’s most prestigious winery and cellars where we will stop for a lunch.

Later, we will visit Montepulciano, a famous medieval village that is replete with Tuscan history and an area of the region that is renowned for its cultural summer festival and fairs.

Our tour will continue with a visit to the city walls, where you’ll have an opportunity to watch skilled tradesmen and women at work using traditional manufacturing techniques to shape copper in their old artisan shops. We’ll also stop by some of the characteristic Enoteche (wine shops). Later that day, your scenic tour manager will return you in order to your Hotel of Florence and bid you a fond farewell
