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. 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

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. It is hard to add more to the descriptions other reviewers have already provided because our experience was the same -- breathtaking views, delicious food, lovely wine to taste and a fabulous host who is knowledgable...

My husband and I both agreed that this tour was the highlight of our trip ( We went to France, major cities in Italy, Greek, and Turkey). I've researched wineries in San Gimignano and found this place. It was the great decision. We did winery tour with lunch included. The host, David is very nice and knowledgeable. We sat outside...

Just returned from our wine tour with lunch and wine tasting... We had an incredible time! David was great, so informative and knowledgeable about so many different subjects, and really such a friendly, personable and inviting host and gentleman! My 16 year old triplets were equally impressed! We tasted 9 different wines and had a most incredible lunch with fantastic... More

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.
