Winter is on the way out, we are seeing the first blossom on the fruit trees.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. Since we offer individual attention to guests it is important to book please.

We stayed at il piano for 6 nights with our kids aged 10 and 13. Great hosts, pool, table tennis, accommodation, proximity to San gimigiano. We stayed here 15 years ago and it is still fantastic. Great wine tour on the estate and superb area for walking. Great value for money! I can easily stay for a month....or 2...

My wife and I visited Fattoria II in March 2015. David really made this experience enjoyable. The view of San G. and the grounds are beautiful. The wine sampling and the Italian lunch was a great choice. You will not be disappointed if you schedule this tour into your plans.

As a Tour Company owner in Italy my experience started with planning the event over the phone, which was done both seemlessly and professionally. Our Host David was kind, gentile, experienced and interesting. He is packed with knowledge of the Tuscan region, the farm estate's historical stories, the culinary surprises and vino served. He showed us an extensive area of... More

The wine tasting tour at il piano was one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany. The quality of the Wines, the food, the whole experience really, but more importantly, the host. David was very attentive, kind and all and all, a great guide. The views of San Gimignano while having lunch and talking the Tuscan wines will always... More

When visiting San Gimignano for the first time, I arranged for a private tour of this vineyard with a light lunch on the terrace after the tour. David, our host, did a great job of educating us about the vineyard, the wine making process, the laws regulating how the wine is labeled, and of course, letting us sample many of... More

Not the easiest to find but well worth the effort. Make sure you have a copy of the map off their website. David the English host was knowledgable and it was great to see around this traditional Italian vineyard. The food and wine was sensational in a great setting. The olive oil was well worth trying as well as all... More

I went on this tour with my girlfriend whilst staying in San Gimignano, and I have to say it was the highlight of our holiday. It was a private tour for just the two of us (apparently all tours are done as private tours), and we felt like we were being treated like royalty. The wine and food were both... More

It's hard to add much to the other reviews. Arranged afternoon visit at short notice via email, David replied very quickly and was very flexible re timings. Tuscany in August is full of tourists and we wanted to get away from the madding crowds! So with 2 kids (14&11) who weren't that inspired by the thought, we headed off -... More

We did many wonderful things on our recent trip to Italy, and this event with David Hughes was among the best of the best.
