Special Vernaccia wine day tour from Siena
Here is what you will live
No Italian wine can boast a history that dates back centuries like Vernaccia di San Gimignano. At the end of the Thirteenth century, it appeared throughout Europe on the tables of kings, popes and wealthy merchants. It is a white wine of a regal colour: “coppe, nappi, bacini d’oro e d’argento / Vin greco di riviera e di vernaccia” recited the poet Folgòre from San Gimignano at the beginning of the Fourteenth century. It is highly likely that the name Vernaccia comes from Vernazza, where wines from Liguria were embarked. And Vernaccia was the most exclusive and precious of these wines.
Today, with this tour you'll discover the secrets of this product, how wineries have been working it recently and re-evaluated it, departing from Siena and discovering wineries and villages!
