There was no better way to start off exploring a new town than with a wine tasting. Our original plan was to take a walk around town and than climb one of the towers for an all around experience of what San Gimignano has to offer.

Our plans were diverted when we walked buy the Tollena shop where they sell wine, vinegar's, salts, olive oils, honey and jams. The wine comes from Tollena Farms not too far from the town of San Gimignano where this shop is located.

This little diversion ended up in a purchase of six bottles of wine and a little buzz to go along with it. The total amount spent for the wine and the shipping was 130 Euro. The wine is now sitting in our wine closet and we will take out to share at least once this summer.

Here are some photos from the shop.
