My San Gimignano Chianti tour, combines a visit to the medieval Manhattan, a three course home cooked winery lunch, wine tasting and a scenic drive through the gorgeous Tuscan countryside.

San Gimignano is a tiny town that’s famous for the unique state of preservation of its medieval architecture. This includes a dozen of its tower houses, that together with its hilltop setting, form an unforgettable skyline. The town also is known its white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, produced from the ancient variety of the Vernaccia grape.

Chianti also referred to as Colline del Chianti (Chianti Hills), is a mountainous area of Tuscany between the provinces of Florence and  Siena. If seeing the iconic scenery for which Tuscany is world famous is something you’d like to enjoy, then this is the place to be. We will of course be making stops for contemplation and photos.

The departure from your accommodation for our San Gimignano Chianti tour is 9.oo am, and we arrive in San Gimignano after about an hour’s drive. The reason it’s called the Manhattan of the 13th century will soon be apparent.  The town once boasted seventy two towers and today twelve are left. Your visit is in free time, will start with a walk up the main street which leads to the town piazza. With its wonderfully preserved medieval stone buildings, the town has an atmosphere all of its own. The town is very small indeed, and you’ll easily find the panoramic points (which are well indicated), for some spectacular views and photos.

Late morning will have us visiting Marronaia winery for our three course home cooked lunch, and paired wine tasting. The visit starts with a walk in the vineyards, which also have a breathtaking views towards San Gimignano. Then it’s time to take your seat for your home cooked lunch with a paired tasting of the estate’s Chianti and Vernaccia wines. You’ll also be tasting the estate’s genuine extra virgin Olive Oil. Your lunch will be outside, weather permitting

After lunch we head towards the Chianti region for our leisurely drive of the iconic landscapes. We’ll be making stops for photos and contemplation of the gorgeous scenery. A unique picture of undulating hills, vineyards, olive groves, natural woodland, and old stone farmhouses. The Chianti landscapes have inspired countless photographs, many of which have become classics for postcards and calendars.
