Type: Wineries, Food & Drink
Owner description: Winter is here and we are busy getting ready for winter work such as pruning.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 as at this time of year we are not always open but will always do our best. 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.

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

What made it a pleasure was that you were genuinely interested and it was a pleasure! Hope you will continue to drink Colli Senesi wines. 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. 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
