We will take you to the medieval town of San Gimignano, also known as the “Manhattan of the Middle Ages” and Unesco World Heritage since 1990.
Here you will admire the medieval village perfectly preserved and look from the terraces to admire the surrounding hills where one of the highest quality of saffron is produced. After the walking tour in town we will reach our first wine producer to visit the cellars and taste local wines including famous Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, the first Italian wine to receive the “designation of origin guaranteed and controlled”, all accompanied by a rich typical Tuscan lunch.
You will visit the vineyards and enjoy the anecdotes and “stories” on viticulture and production narrated by the wine maker himself.
In the afternoon you will stop at a typical medieval village (i.e. Monteriggioni or Colle val d’Elsa) and visit another wine producer located in the Chianti region where you will taste local wines and Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil.
You will establish a personal relationship with the farmers and not only taste their products …
Visiting the farms will not be just a quick stop for a glass of wine, but a real “intercultural experience“.
