About
We are closing for the winter, but will take reservations if we can manage it. Then come and relax in the fresh air, with social distancing, and enjoy our wines and good food.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. See how we make and mature our 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.

I had the best wine tasting at Fattoria Il Piano. The lovely bottles, the adorable doggo Suleman, the spectacular view over Tuscany’s autumn colors and above all David’s charm really made the perfect ingredients for an unforgettable experience. I can’t recommend this place enough, looking forwards to coming back for a longer stay!

Great tour, great wine, great order handling and shipment
Nov 2021
We visited this winery back in 2016, which was a great tour led by David. We tasted the wines and the oil, which were awesome. We decided to buy and get it shipped back to Holland. We recently bought another batch. The orders are handled swiftly and shipped in a matter of days. Wine of this quality for this price is a rare find. I can only highly recommend the tour and the wines. Enjoy!

So, so good!

4 of us did the wine tasting with David. It was truly one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in Italy. David showed us around the property and explained to us the wine making process. Their facilities are so cool! Underground wine cellars actually built into the side of a mountain. After touring the grounds we started the tasting. All of the wines with food pairings were delicious! David actually made a lot of the food items himself. The beans, roasted peppers so good. The cheeses were all local as was the honey. Everything was perfect . From the wine to the food, the view, and our wonderful host and his beautiful dog, a perfect day!

Breathtaking Views + Outstanding Wines + Amazing Host = Phenomenal Experience!
Oct 2021
I was in Tuscany for almost 3 weeks in October 2021. I visited 13 amazing wineries, and Fattoria Il Piano is in its own category of awesomeness. This is the "small family winery" experience I was looking for. After a nice walk around the production facilities on the property, David guided us through a tasting of the farm's fine wines. The wines were enjoyed the way they are meant to be: unrushed, paired with great snacks, and with pleasant and funny conversation. I highly recommend a trip to Fattoria Il Piano!

Trekking e wine experience a San Gimignano

Very nice wine experience in this beautiful place. Very kind Mr. David with his very nice big dog Suliman. The wine and cured meats presented for tasting are of excellent quality and, for those who go there, it is an experience not to be missed.

Best winery in this region
Sep 2021 • Couples
We accidentally came to this place and just loved it. We felt very welcomed. During the day Andrea, the owner, showed us the winecellar, how they dry the grapes and explained so many interesting things about the wine-making. In the afternoon we had a winetasting with David. He’s a great and funny guy with his bear-dog Suleiman. After a few winerys in this region in our opinion their wines are outstanding.

Wine tasting with a perfect host and beautiful view!

Thank you David for this amazing experience!
We booked your Wine tasting on the same day. After a rough road up to the hills, we enjoyed the great view over your wine fields. We tasted 6 different wines and all of them were delicious! Specially your vin santo. As a snack we loved the bread with your homemade extra virgin olive oil and the homemade cake with grapes from your fields!!! We enjoyed the conversation with the other guest from America and Munich too!

Definitely we will order some more wine, when we are back in Germany!

Cuddles for your super sweet dog and greetings from Düsseldorf!

We visited this winery on the last day of our Tuscany trip and it immediately became one of the highlights of the entire trip. Arranging an appointment was straightforward and easy. When we arrived at the top of the winery after a somewhat adventurous road, we had a wonderful view of a dreamlike Tuscan landscape and the wonderful San Gimignano, as well as the typical Tuscan buildings of the winery. We were in a bit of a hurry when we got upstairs, but if you first breathe in the wonderfully calm atmosphere of this idyll, you come to rest immediately, but at the latest when you get to know David with his calm, level-headed and serene manner.
After some small talk, the tour started. First about the history of the winery on the grapevines, about the production in the warehouses and about the wine itself in the wine cellar. David's knowledge does not begin and end with wine, he has a great general knowledge, which enables him to consider many aspects of wine production and sales from different perspectives and contexts and what makes the tour all the more informative for visitors.
After this very informative tour in an intimate circle, we went back to the table where, in addition to some bread with olive oil and nice conversations, the wine tasting took place. David takes his time and goes into every single wine and he and Salomon are great company. I would just like to say this much about the wines: our wallets are now lighter and our cellars are full.
In the end, David again showed us his hospitality and we were allowed to enjoy the food we had brought with us on his dreamlike terrace, together with a couple of open bottles of wine and an incredible view of San Gimignano and the surrounding landscape.

In conclusion, I would like to warmly recommend a visit to this winery to anyone who can plan a stay in Tuscany.

Great wine tasting, wonderful experience!
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had a wonderful tasting experience as we have seen the vineyards and the cellars before tasting some beautiful wines! The il Piano tasting is known for The Tuscan Wine dog, who is a lovely dog that will make your stay more enjoyable. The Tour guide had a lot of knowledge and passion and was a joy to listen to and share experiences with. Be aware: you might end up buying a bit more than you would think on beforehand, so leave enough space in the car! We also tried other wine tastings in the area, but this one was the most enjoyable!
