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!

Your first stop will be Fattoria Il Palagio, where you'll visit this beautiful small winery and taste their Vernaccia; then your tour continues towards Tenuta Torciano, for an interesting lunch and tasting experience including the introduction and explanation of the Vernaccia world. 

After lunch, you visit San Gimignano and, most important, the ROCCA WINE EXPERIENCE, the entrance to the museum of Vernaccia where you'll have time to taste other glasses and visit the museum.

You'll be back at the hotel in Siena by 5 pm
