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 visited the Fattoria Il Piano farm in the afternoon where we were met by David who showed us around. It was a truly interesting and exiting tour, and David was great in answering all of our many questions. He spoke perfect English (he is from England and has been living in Italy for six years). Afterwards we sat down... More

This vineyard is well worth a visit if your ever in the area, the tour was good and informative, the tasting was delicious, the young Greek woman who took the tour was very very entertaining and could talk about most subjects , she had a good rapport with all on the trip.

We had the most wonderful experience tasting the wines and learning more about the wines from this special wine farm. Our host David is so knowledgeable and was so hospitable towards us we ended up staying way longer than intended. All in all the most memorable experience of our trip so far. I can highly recommend it to anyone who... More

Can't wait to visit this winery again, which we certainly will do! We loved every aspect: scenic drive up the Cyprus-lined hill to their estate, tour of vineyard and wine cellar, and of course the wine paired with excellent Italian food!! Our host was very knowledgable and a pleasure to share the afternoon with. It was so refreshingly low key,... More

The grounds and view of San Gimignano were sublime. David is such a warm and knowledgable host. For 20 Euros per person, you get a tour of the grounds and light meal paired with the the different wines. The multicourse light meal was impeccable. Fresh fruit, pecorino, local honey, truffle butter, bread, crackers, fruit, an assortment of cured meats, good... More

While spending a few days relaxing in Tuscany and enjoying the sunshine my husband and I decided we'd like to learn a little more about the local wine and how it's produced. Turning to trusted Trip Advisor I found and contacted David Hughes and arranged a tour at Il Piano. On our arrival we were surprised, but delighted to be... More
