Thank you to our friend for this great article that talks about his wine tasting here at the winery.
“The owner of the up market hotel Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas was so impressed by the wines of Tenuta Torciano in the Tuscan town of San Gimignano that he invited the owner Luigi Giachi, to hold a wine tasting for 200 of his guests at the hotel, says our guest writer, Bhavna Bahl who recently visited his estate.
On a fine day in Tuscany last month, we tell our car driver to take us for wine tasting in between our visit to Sienna and San Gimignano. He promptly calls his friend Luigi who invites us to his vineyard in San Gimignano. This farm is located in the DOCG zone on the hills of San Gimignano, an esteemed area in the Tuscan region.
Pierluigi Giachi (pronounced as ja-key), addressed fondly as Luigi, is the passionate 13th generation of the Giachi family owner of Tenuta di Torciano. He has five vineyards scattered throughout Tuscany which provides them with most of the grapes for their wines and they also buy grapes from other selected wine growers.
Swarming with tourists, noisy and boisterous with wine tasting-actually, more like wine drinking, the enoteca at Tenuta Torciano is managed by an enthusiastic Luigi who personally entertains all his guests. We were lead to a special room to start our tasting of 8 wines produced by him.”
