For truffle lovers

In Tenuta Torciano the most popular activity by our most adventurous guests is the opportunity to experience the ancient tradition of truffle hunting. For centuries the Tuscan people used to immerse themselves into the forest in search of truffles, a culinary delicacy that is an integral part of the culture in rural Tuscany. Truffles, also known as tubers, grow spontaneously in the ground near the roots of some trees or shrubs, in particular oaks and holm oaks, with which they establish a symbiotic relationship.

Visitors are first taught how to identify and find the truffle. Afterwards a professional guide bring guests during an excursion in the surrounding woods, with special trained dogs, to look for the little treasures. At the end of the hunt, guests can participate in a cooking class where they learn the right way to prepare and cook the culinary delicacies combined with truffles found during the experience. The day combines the beauty of the Tuscan countryside with the gratification of an exquisite meal accompanied by 10 different kind of wines.

For vineyards and nature lovers

Take a closer look at the vineyards and their beautiful surroundings. A deeply therapeutic touch in nature and a sweet sense of joy and discovery in our cellar. We believe that reconnecting with your environment and with the purity of nature is the best way to rediscover the simple life of the countryside together with family and friends.

The visit of our vineyards is addressed both to an audience of true wine lovers, and to those people who wish to participate in a first wine experience. It will foresee the presence of an expert guide and will consist of an in-depth study of the Giachi family reality from the point of view of the territory and winemaking. It will be interesting to admire the landscape and architectural context, the barrique cellar, the wine cellar and both internal and external tasting rooms. In particular it will be possible to appreciate the ancient vineyard of the Vernaccia di San Gimignano, from which the name of the homonymous wine “Poggioaicieli” originates (one of the most famous wines of the area), and the new circular vineyard, able to combine the production of grapes with aesthetics and tradition, becoming a real attraction in recent years. An harmonious succession of rows of vines arranged in a circle, forming a spiral, in a movement interspersed only by the central stone table, as a vantage point to enjoy this spectacle of nature.

During this experience (of about 2 hours) you will have the possibility of savoring the Tuscan by walking among the rows and tasting the wines of our production. Then enjoy an exclusive lunch in the cellar and a vertical tasting of the Estate’s best products.
