We took a break here and stopped for a sip of wine at the museum to learn about the local grape. I was interested to learn about the area's local wine. A mistake on my part stopping here for that. Who would think a local...More

I review the ‘Vernaccia Di San Gimignano Wine Experience’. We entered into the ‘Rocca’ ready to taste few wines. There were three waitresses and we were the two of us only in the shop. You can purchase few cards of 6, 12 Euro or more...More

I'm glad the Italians understand how important it is to showcase this varietal. It's a tiny museum, and you wear a virtual reality goggle to watch the history of the area. So fun! Downstairs in one room they have all of the producer's wine in...More

IIt's well worth the walk up here for the views over the Tuscan countryside. Early morning or evening are best before/after the hordes of day trippers are in San Gimignano. You can get a tasting of 4 wines (for a fee), or buy wine by...More

Probably the highest point in San G. it is definitely worth the uphill walk to visit this lovely little place, it is a hilltown so what can one expect. The best bet for Vernaccia tasting is to try the "Flight" that they offer, I cannot...More

The museum is located at the old fortress, which you'll have to climb up several hills/stairs to get to, but it has a lovely view of the surrounding hills. In the enoteca, you can buy a local glass of wine or elect for the tasting,...More
