Tenuta Torciano Winery is situated in the heart of Tuscany, 35 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from Siena, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a succession of unique greenery that features towering cypress trees, long stretches of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, forests of oaks and lovely villages.
When you visit Tenuta Torciano Winery, you will totally immerse yourself in Italian culture, together with a Tuscan family consisting of 13 generations of wine producers. Here you will experience warm hospitality and additional Tuscan traditions handed down from father to son.
The production area is characterised by a Mediterranean climate with rather dry summers, not particularly harsh winters and rainfall concentrated in two periods: April/May and November, with temperatures varying from -5°C to +37°C. The area benefits from good ventilation all year round and only rarely is it cloaked in fog.
The San Gimignano area is very well suited to winegrowing. The main appellation is Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, flanked by San Gimignano Doc. These two wines are specific to the territory. There are also vineyards for the production of Chianti, Chianti Colli Senesi and IGT Toscana.
Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a grape variety which was first cultivated on the hills of San Gimignano in clay schist soils dating back to the Pliocene era. It was the first grape variety to be awarded, in 1966, the Denomination of Controlled Origin and in 1993, the D.O.C.G.
Vernaccia-based wine from San Gimignano has a long history, and since the Renaissance period has been considered one of Italy’s oldest and most noble wines. Its fame has no doubt been strongly connected to its region of origin, San Gimignano – an ancient Tuscan town famed for its medieval towers.

My favorite summer on the patio wine with friends!

Incredible white (and I'm not a big fan of whites!) A great way to start any Italian meal. Every bottle brings a different experience; grapefruit, pear and banana. It's worth the price.

I'm more of a red drinker, but I bought this white for my wife as a gift. We opened it a couple of weeks ago and had it with a fish dinner. It was very good and went very well with the food.
The best white wine I've ever tried!

Really enjoyed this wine on our tour and tasting. Glad i got a bottle shipped home.
This is my favorite wine. I sampled it while on a pilgrimage a few years ago and have been ordering it ever since. The flavor is wonderful and light. Just way I like it.

We had this beautiful white wine when we visited the vineyard in June, 2019 for a lunch wine tasting. We ordered it along with other reds. When we got back home we ordered a case. It is delicious and we will always have it in our wine cabinet.

My wife and I visited the vineyard on our honeymoon back in March of 2017 and bought a case of mixed reds and this white. The other night we shared this bottle and it brought us right back to the Tuscan countryside! This bottle is her favorite!
