“Wine degustation with accommodation”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

If you are in Tuscany, you have to stop for wine tasting. On our way to San Gimignano (beautiful historic town) we choose to stop in nearest village Ulignano. There is nice winery Tenuta Torciano, where you can go just for degustation or you can try our way light dinner with degustation. We tried 9 kinds of wine, extra virgin olive oil, truffle oil and 30 years old balsamic acid. Winery has just some rooms, but can provide more accommodation in village. We slept in winery, in nice small house made in old fashion romantic style. Our friends stay in some beautiful farm house and they were very satisfied. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, just there were not enough food for dinner...4 courses, but not enough...Staff was nice, wine very tasty and tartuffo oil the best. We have lot of nice memories :)

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!!!!!!
