Day 2: Vernaccia of San Gimignano
Next on our Tuscany itinerary is a white wine day, dedicated to La Vernaccia Tuscan wine region.
In the morning, we will drive around the countryside of San Gimignano and Castelvecchio National Park and, along the way, we will have an opportunity to sample stunning wines and delicious food at two of the great wineries that are run by local families, stopping to see the stunning vineyard at each.
Vernaccia di San Gimignano stands out among the top wines of Tuscany. Vernaccia-based wine from San Gimignano has a long-established history as the noblest wine in Italy. Its fame is undoubtedly connected to its region of origin, San Gimignano - an ancient Tuscan town that is famed for its medieval towers.

San Gimignano is famous for its fascinating medieval architecture and lofty towers from which visitors can enjoy impressive views of the city and surrounding valley.
We will end the second day of the guided tour at a local Tuscan trattoria back to the accommodation.

Later, we will visit Montepulciano, a famous medieval village sitting in the rolling hills that is replete with Tuscan history and renowned for its cultural summer festival and fairs.
