In this Great Escape we learn how to make wine in San Gimignano Tuscany.
It’s harvest time in Tuscany which means each day at the Fattoria di Fugnano starts with everyone heading to the fields to pick the grapes.
Laura Dellaira’s grandfather bought the farm in 1963.
She traded a corporate life for a farm life in Tuscany.
Turning down offers for machines to the pick grapes, Dellaira explains every grape at the farm is hand picked.
The farm produces a variety of wines from white wines to Chianti and Super Tuscans.
There’s more than just wine making at this beautiful farm.
It’s also an agriturismo which means people can stay overnight, and if they choose they can also join in on the picking of the grapes.
And it’s our pick as one of the top escapes in Tuscany.
