We thought the wine tasting was in the village of San Gimignano but it was a few kilometres away. As we didn’t have a car we had to take a taxi there and back. The tasting lasted 1 hour and was very good, we sampled 4 wines which were accompanied by substantial snacks which paired with the wines.

The location was super nice. Very well prepared tables, the guide was great with the explanations about the different types of wine. The food was great too. What we didn't like was that it wasn't clear beforehand how many courses would be eaten. Basically, we only tasted one wine very well. But that's a matter of taste. The prices for the self-manufactured products are steep. Nevertheless, we would unreservedly recommend the tasting.

The wine tasting and the meal was really very good, we eat in the middle of the vats, it is very original. Only downside, we thought to visit too, but we were told on site that it was not possible because of the covid. So we were a little disappointed. But the rest was of quality so catch up well.
