But it is also the location of one of the most important white wines of Italy named Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the absolute first and only Tuscan W hite wine to receive the Denomination of Origin Controlled Status back in 1966. In recent years the area has also shown an interesting potential for powerful red wines.

The second option can be the one of visiting the winery as soon as we arrive to San Gimignano, the scond visit will include the luhch at the farm, as I explaind above, with the family, in the afternoon before to head back to Siena we will stop for a walk in town.
