When wine meets beauty: the perfect pair. Come with us into the heart of San Gimignano

One of the best places where to indulge into the simple pleasures of Tuscan lifestyle? It is Tenuta Torciano, an exclusive destination in the heart of San Gimignano, a gem of Siena.

 Established in 1720 by the Giachi family, Tenuta Torciano has been a family-run estate for over 15 generations. This historic winery offers customized winemaking experiences, combined with the tasting of over 15 different wines, including Brunello di Montalcino, Super Tuscans, Chianti, Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano, Bolgheri, Vernaccia di San Gimignano and other special reserve wines.

A unique opportunity to enjoy Tuscany through a wide range of activities, thanks to which visitors can soak up the local atmosphere and take in the views, flavors and scents of the surrounding vineyards, olive groves and woods, either by foot or on horseback.

At Tenuta Torciano, visitors have also the chance to experience the ancient truffle-hunting tradition, within the property’s vast truffle-grounds, with the assistance of an experienced truffle-hunter and specially trained dogs. At the end of the hunt, guests can take part in the cooking class where they will learn how to properly use and cook these freshly-picked delicacies.

Is there anything better than a delicious and relaxing lunch in the vineyards, including a vertical tasting of the winery’s signature labels? Everything you could possibly wish for is at your disposal.

Another exclusive experience is the option to land at the winery by helicopter. After a wonderful golf game at Golf Club Castelfalfi, located just a few kilometers from the estate, you can take off and land at Torciano on one of the two secure helipads, enjoy a lovely lunch with wine tasting in the VIP vineyard in the midst of nature and surrounded by the magnificent hilly landscape, visit the medieval town of San Gimignano and go back to your hotel more relaxed than ever after a day spent on the estate.

For a fairy tale-like stay, Tenuta Torciano’s Hotel Vecchio Asilo, housed in a historic watch-tower in the town of Ulignano, offers rooms with en-suite bathrooms and view of the garden, the perfect Tuscan country retreat.

A must-see destination in Tuscany.
