Our wine tastings and tours are in full swing; 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. Just please check our Tripadvisor map as it does not seem to be accurate! 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. Since we offer individual attention to guests it is important to book please. « less

My sister and I visited Il Piano 6/7/14 from our stay in Volterra. We were captivated by the surrounding countryside as we drove up the road, but we were not expecting what awaited us at the top of the hill! The view over the Tuscan valley back toward San Gimignano was just spectacular. David our host greeted us and commenced... More

We’d heard from friends who went last year that David’s Wine & Olive Oil Tasting at Il Piano is not to be missed. We were not disappointed. As well as a hugely enjoyable and interesting day out this is a tour for serious wine buyers. I loved the underground cantina - clay removed to dig it out was used to... More

Words cannot describe how great this tour was. David, the tour guide, is both knowledgable and gracious. Our family of four, including kids ages 14 and 11 went on this wine tour that by far exceeded expectations. It was an unhurried tour of the vineyard. David answered all of our questions. We sampled ten different local wines complemented by delicious... More

If heaven is to be found on earth, it must be where the most spectacular views of Tuscany surround you whilst you sample fine wines at Il Piano. The magic of this wine tasting is enhanced by David's knowledge about the local wines and the history of the region. It was fascinating. Coming up a long mountain trail to arrive... More

Il Piano is a perfect opportunity if you’re looking for something to do whilst holidaying in the Tuscan region. A modest winery enhanced by its surroundings of open green valleys spreading to the horizon and San Gimignano as the centrepiece to this incredible scenery. I can think of no better way to immerse yourself with a slice of Italian culture... More

It was a good day and glad you enjoyed it. That 2006 Vin Santo is special, we are coming to the last few bottles but the 2009 looks as if it will be better! More

I booked a wine tour on the last full day of our vacation to Italy. I knew the view of San Gimignano would be unmatchable but the day far exceeded any expectation I could have ever imagined. We were greeted at the car by David, an extremely knowledgeable and interesting Brit who was engaging from the start. We were quickly... More

We just returned from an amazing week in Florence and our visit to this wine estate was by far the absolute highlight of the trip! Unfortunately we did this at the start of our holiday, so nothing else over the next days could match the experience we got from David, a very friendly and knowledgeable British gentleman, who is responsible...

The best experience during our honeymoon in Toscana. We are so grateful for David who made this day unbelievable and met us with a such great reception. It was better than a movie episode, the tipical tuscan route to the winery, lovely house with rich history, old way of making wine and an incredible view to San Gimignano. Personal approach... More
