San Gimignano is a small medieval village dating back to the 8th century. It is perhaps the most famous of the small towns in Tuscany, known above all for its 14 towers overlooking picturesque olive groves and vineyards. Travelers who want to imagine what Tuscany was like in the Middle Ages should definitely visit San Gimignano.
If you choose an accommodation based in San Gimignano or in the surrounding area, you can travel in many different directions and discover artistic, naturalistic and historical beauties of Tuscany that will enrich your itinerary.
Some of these places are also easily accessible by public transport and are not far away. Just half an hour by car to your point of stay you will find the most renowned cities of Tuscany, such as Siena and Florence.
The visit allows an in-depth study of the reality of the Estate’s vineyards from the point of view of the territory to which they belong and from the enological point of view. Interesting is the landscape and architectural context, the barrel cellar and the tasting rooms both internal and external directly on the garden. In particular, it will be possible to appreciate the ancient Vernaccia di San Gimignano vineyard, planted in 1996, from which the wine of the same name originates. Also not to be missed is a visit to the Sangiovese vineyard, located in our “circular vineyard”. This spiral vineyard is capable of combining production with aesthetics and tradition.
The visit will take place with a trained guide who will tell you the story of the Tenuta Torciano farm and the current production line. The visit is organized over a period of 1.5 / 2 hours in which you will have the opportunity to taste wines from our production during lunch. The visit is aimed at both an audience of wine enthusiasts and people who wish to have a first experience of wine culture together with our expert guide of the area, of vine cultivation techniques from planting to harvest.
