Walk the city walls to a wine-tasting

  • Walk the city walls to a wine-tasting

    Take a short walk along the city walls to la Rocca, the 14th-century fortress, before leaving town. This semi-restored fortress enjoys views over terraced gardens and olive groves winding down to the Vernaccia vineyards. These vineyards produce the celebrated white wine that was even mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy. The Museo Vernaccia (Vernaccia Wine Museum) is the place to sample a range of local wines. Apart from the famous Vernaccia, you can taste or buy San Gimignano DOC wines (Rosso/red, Rosato/rose and sweet Vin Santo dessert wine). If you’re interested in wines from further afield, opt for Chianti DOCG wines, along with Toscana IGT wines. An audio-visual display celebrates the history of wine-making in the area.
