Summer is well on the way and we are seeing the first signs of flowers on the vines.So if you are visiting the ancient towers of San Gimignano, which stand sentinel over the Il Piano Vineyards, do get in touch and come and visit; but please make a reservation first, we will always do our best to accommodate you, or book for a visit in the coming months. The vineyards and winery have been lovingly tended by the Carlesi-Zucconi family since 1973. Begin with a stroll through the vines on your guided tour of one of this region's most traditional wineries. Taste our house wines in the underground cantina; then afterwards relax with breathtaking views of San Gimignano and the surrounding bucolic Tuscan countryside while enjoying our premier wines accompanied by local cuisine.

We (group of 6) booked this wine tasting on new-years day, and were pleased they even answered. The grounds are are peaceful, well taken care of and welcoming. We took an extremely informative tour of the vineyard and winery which included some of the vines, the historic houses and the cellar. This is the first time I have ever seen... More

I go to California every year for wine tasting. I have also tasted in Australia, Israel and other parts of Italy. This is probably one of the best I've EVER done. First, we were here during the week after Christmas and before New Years. Not a good time for wine tasting in Italy. I sent out a few emails and... More

The location is simply beautiful, the tour is interesting, and David and Andrea couldn't be more gracious hosts. The tasting and food combinations are such a perfect end to the experience, and it's somewhere we return to whenever we can get to San Gimignano. I highly recommend it if you're in the area.

The vineyard is tucked away in the hills but very easy to drive to. David was quick to respond to any questions we had whilst making our booking and gave a fascinating tour of the vineyard and wine making process. The food and wine was exceptional, with the view of San Gimignano coming a close second. We would definitely recommend... More

If you are interested in wine tasting in Tuscany try Fattoria Il Piano in San Gimignano. The guide, David, speaks perfect English and will give you a tour of their vineyard along with a delicious tasting! My husband and I e-mailed David about trying the wine tasting 2 option for lunch and he quickly responded. We were the only people... More

Wonderful and intimate tour of winery and cheese making followed by a wine and cheese tasting. Staff are friendly and are not aggressive in pushing their product. Wines were good and priced well. Cheese was fantastic. Good thing our tour guide was driving as location is down a few dirt roads but when you reach the destination it is truly... More

This is a great winery and a real treat. A bit of a drive on an old country road, but the views are amazing. James treated us to a truly delightful tour of the old fashion way to make wine - concrete vats. The red brick underground cellar is magnificent. The tasting was very enlightening and the 2010 Tenuta Il... More

We reviewed many wine tour options before traveling to Tuscany and settled on Fattoria il Piano as it had turned up in an internet search for wine tours near San Gimignano where we were staying. Not only was this tour reasonably priced, it was only a 10 minute ride by auto over a couple of beautifully landscaped hills from our... More

We contacted Fattoria II Piano last minute during our stay in San Gimignano. David responded to our request very quickly and booked a wine tour. His communication was fast and proficient. We met on location as planned and took the tour along with another couple. Our time there was superb as we toured the property including two cantinas, one above... More

I visited Fattoria Il Piano a couple of years ago, and was really bowled over by the setting, and the fabulous wine tasting and tour. I couldn't resist going back again this year, and was astounded at how much the wines have improved. Il Piano have really raised their game. The wines were very pleasant before, but now they are...

Appreciate your comments very much, it is very good to know visitors can and do see the improvement in our wines. This year's vendemmia looks to be a very good year so do come back in 3-4 years and taste our wines from this year!! More
