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 chose the "premier" formula with a tasting of 5 wines and a full meal. For me and my girlfriend, this was the first time we experienced a winetasting. We were pleasantly surprised by the time David took to explain everything to us. Both the food and the wines were excellent. The overall experience was one of a kind and... More

We toured the family vineyards, wine cellars, tasted numerous wines with light lunch and relaxed at the pool. A lovely day, close to San Gimignano. Our English-speaking host, David, was knowledgeable, sincere and patient. Shipped wine and olive oil home to Oklahoma. One of the best ways to spend a lazy day in Tuscany!

My husband and I just returned from our Italian vacation, which included a week in Tuscany. Our vineyard tour with David was our introduction to the region, and set the tone for a fantastic rest of our stay. David was responsive to our tour inquiry via email, and warmly greeted us when we arrived. We received a pleasant, thorough tour... More

Our host/tour guide David was most hospitable. We were so impressed to receive a response from our last minute email the evening before and delighted he could fit us in for a "light" afternoon tour and tasting at 2:00 pm. After a tour of the beautiful vineyard, buildings and cellars we were treated to a wonderfully generous tasting of 6... More

For us coming to Il Piano is a little bit as coming home. Since 1996 we've visited this beautiful place every few years. First with our daughters, and lately the two of us. It's peaceful and quiet, with beautiful views everywhere you look. The hospitality is also great. We are always a little bit sad when we have to leave... More

We made a reservation for a property tour and wine testing after reading judgements on tripadvisor. And we can only say that it was really the perfect choice. If you can only visit one wine yard in San Gimognano, go here! The view from here beats everything else, totally amazing! David gave us an excellent tour of the winery, which... More

I cannot say enough about this unexpectedly special tour. My husband and I were staying nearby in Colle di Val d'Elsa and took a day trip to Fattoria Il Piano. We were the only two on the tour and were able to ask lots of questions and make the experience uniquely our own. David was quick to respond and so... More

We had a great day in San Gimignano and our tour/tasting at Fattoria Il Piano was the highlight. David was very knowledgeable about the wines and was very welcoming. Although we had made a reservation, we wound up arriving 2 hours late due to tie-ups with our rental car in Florence. David was waiting for us and still gave us... More
