Wine Tasting with Saffron Meal

Already in the Middle Ages, San Gimignano was famous for the production of saffron, a precious ingredient like gold dust that has made the fortune of the town. Even today the saffron is grown in the area and it’s the protagonist of the local gastronomy. The tasting will accompany guests to discover the flavors and refined aromas of this particular spice.

From: 55,00 EUR


Experience Description

The wine & Evo oil tasting with the saffron meal will start with a short introduction to our farm in front of our Vernaccia vineyard, one of the oldest in San Gimignano.

The Saffron meal comprises four courses: a starter with bruschetta and crostini with saffron, organic saffron pasta and vegetables, local cheeses, smoked beef with homemade Saffron oil or egg with saffron (depending on availability), and, finally, our homemade cake.

This option also includes a choice of at least four organic and biodynamic wines from Podere La Marronaia, such as Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Chianti Colli Senesi, and six kinds of extra virgin olive oils, natural and flavored.
