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
