“Beautiful winery, beautiful people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Not sure why I haven't reviewed the beautiful Tenuta Torciano before now. I visited there nearly four years ago and had an experience of a lifetime! We had a daylong visit through the Tuscany region visiting Pisa and many hilltop cities such as Siena and San Gimingnano. Upon our arrival we were greeted my the most picturesque landscape I've ever seen in my life! Pierluigi greeted us in the courtyard immediately welcoming us to his beautiful Tenuta Torciano! Everything I know about wine, Luigi taught me that day! From the different types of grapes, how they're grown, how the weather effects the grapes, to how the wine is made to the different flavors (cherry, chocolate, etc.) you smell in the wine. (Still always smelled like wine to me, LOL) There was a beautiful tasting spread including lasagna, proscuitto and cheeses to pair with our wines......delicioso!!! As most people who visit Italy I must say that part of it is now in my blood. Especially that particular area. That day in San Gimingnano I knew I'd made an instant friend in Luigi and I still communicate with him from time to time on Facebook. He's warm, inviting and just downright funny!! I've sent friends to Tenuta Torciano and all of them have had extraordinary experiences as well and thanked me for sending them in his direction! I cannot imagine that there is a more entertaining wine tasting experience in all of Tuscany. If you're with PierLuigi Giachi at Tenuta Torciano, you're in the right place!! Their Chianti is by far my favorite still and I still have one more bottle left for a very special occasion. Thank goodness I can order more!

I went in Torciano last Jen. with some friends and we had a great time having lunch and a spectacular wine tasting in a very familiar place with warm and nice people. I suggest this experience to everyone that like wine good food and want to see one of the most beautiful parts of the Chianti country side area.
The farm is located in Ulignano a little village four miles from the medieval town of San Gimignano, if you go there don't miss to visit this place

Bringing students and other travelers to Pier Luigi's vineyards is always a highlight! Lots of laughs, good food and great wine. This is my 7th visit to the vineyards and I'm always pleasantly surprised by how much our travelers love it and continue to talk about it as one of the trip's highlights.

Despite what my "when did you travel" choice says (there is no option for last year) - This winery and wine tasting was SO good that I'm writing a review a year later!!!! We were on a cruise in Sept, 2011 and didn't want to do the standard Livorno/Florence stop - opted for the wine tasting trip and what a fabulous choice that as for us!!!!!

Tenuta Torciano is the prettiest winery and Pierluigi makes the tasting the most fun ever as well as the beauty and body of Tuscan wines and olive oils - amazing experience!!!!!!

October 15, 2012 myself and my family had my birthday supper at this winery. It was my second time being here in three years. I decided then and there in April 2009 that I would return for my birthday in Oct 2012.
We had a delicious four course meal accompanied by 13 delicious wines for only 40 euros!
Mamma's truffle oil and balsamic vinegar was "delizioso" with the lasgna and fresh garden salad.

My family and I really enjoyed the fact that the owner of the winery Pierluigi Giachi was the host of this evening. He is very funny and delightful to be around. His knowledge of wine is fantastic amd very educational.

We booked our dinner online with Pierluigi's wife Luciana before we left Canada for our trip. She was lovely and very prompt with her emails.

I hope someday to make a third trip to Tenuta Torciano. I hope you fall in love with it too!

One more thing: my wines and oils were shipped and received in less than four weeks from my ordering them.
Thank-you to the Giachi family for a wonderful memory!
