Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“Best day in Tuscany - relaxing, gorgeous, fun!”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

With our kids nearing adulthood, James provided an introduction to the ins and outs of winemaking, from the soil to pruning to harvest to fermenting to tasting! We all know the proper way to hold a glass now and why you swirl. It was an amazing day. The villa, its chapel, the grounds gave a sense of the history of the area. The setting was perfection - vineyards in the foreground, San G in the background, amazing food, relaxed crowd, delicious wines. Highly recommended. Felt welcomed, at home and away from the crowded tourist feel that came in town.

“Best part of our trip to San G”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Our afternoon at Il Piano made our trip to San Gimignano extra special. Our wonderful host, James, took us on a tour of the beautiful property and also explained his process of making wine. A light lunch was served and there was a tasting of several different wines. The wines were really all delicious and very smooth. We ordered several bottles for us to have when we returned home. My husband and I were there on a gorgeous day and were able to relax outdoors and enjoy their amazing view of San Gimignano. I highly recommend a visit to Il Piano! Thanks again James for a fabulous afternoon!

“A must do on your list”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Il Piano is just beautiful, there is a deck where one can sample the wines and what an amazing setting and views from here. James took us on a tour of the property the history of the vineyard and how the orginal cellars were constructed was very interesting. Importantly, it is the wine that needs to be highly recommended especially the Vernaccia a stunning white wine. Thank you James for your hospitality and the beautiful wine which we enjoyed at our renewal of wedding vows in Tuscany on June 2nd!

“Il Piano Amazing Day”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

My wife and I had a week in Tuscany and visited several places. Il Piano was definitely the best place we visited and we had a memorable afternoon there. Jimmy and Andrea hosted us for an afternoon with a group tour of the winery, where we were able to learn a bit about history and current and future plans for the property, as well as see how the wine is made. Afterwards they had a late afternoon wine tasting with some light food. The wine was amazing (and we ordered several bottles) with several choices, but just as amazing was the view in the early evening of the valley and San Gimignano. We highly recommend spending an afternoon here.
