Why Learn about Italian Wine?

If you are new to the study of wine — or simply new to the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano — this class is for you. Here, you will experience each of the Wine School’s hallmarks: dispelling industry rumors, banishing popular wine myths, and delivering information in an easy-to-understand manner. Developed by a Pierluigi Giachi winemaker and honed over a 13° generation of winemakers, it represents a singular view of wine education. Allow us to share it with you!

The idea behind “Wine School by Tenuta Torciano : An Intro to Wine” is a deceptively simple one: an introductory class on the 8 most important wine grapes. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s one of the hallmarks of the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano: to take something seemingly elementary and turn it into a brilliant and captivating experience.

The secret Wine School by Tenuta Torciano

The secret sauce is in our sommelier-instructors, who are the very soul of the Wine School. There are only a few hundred people in Tuscany that are truly gifted teachers. There are only a few dozen people in town that have a deep knowledge of wine. How many people are both great teachers and brilliant sommeliers?

Very few. How many of them are also unpretentious and have a great sense of humor? That number is shrinkingly microscopic, but that is okay: They are all recruited to teach for the Wine School. In the end, only the best of the best are allowed to teach the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano. It’s a rite of passage for both our students and instructors.

Hello, I am pierluigi

Tenuta Torciano Wine School for you?

Even if you are a wine connoisseur, you should consider taking this class. Consider this an immunization against a deadly bout of wine snobbery. Even if the information in class is old hat to you, you will still learn a great deal about the school, our philosophy, and our teaching techniques.

There is a reason why the founders and administrators of other wine and culinary schools have taken classes at the Wine School by Tenuta Torciano. It’s the same reasons everyone benefits from attending our classes in tuscany in the winery and in the world.


Where all take origin:

Tenuta Torciano is the product of the passion and hard work of a Tuscan family for over three centuries and 15 generations.  Today, Pierluigi Giachi, together with his wife Luciana Cilemmi and son Emanuele Bartolomeo Giachi, carries on an ancient family tradition. Pierluigi Giachi does not like to call himself a winemaker, but rather he considers himself to be a countryman of Tuscany.

The concept behind our philosophy emphasizing “Handmade” and “Made in Italy” has always been an idea centered around collections produced by the soul, where careful attention is given to the finest “Quality”, “Excellence”, “Exclusivity” and “Originality” that has made Tenuta  Torciano a continued succes. One of our successes that manifests itself is when the “Excellence” of a product fully expresses the meaning of the final value. 

In order for us to cater to even the most particular and unique cliental requests, Tenuta Torciano has created an “Exclusive” collection of leather aged to paper product that allows you to create your own wine labels while still ensuring the highest level of quality. Our customers are represented by a community of passionate winelovers seeking true exposure into the cultural foundation of Tuscan life. The exclusive and quality Italian products can only be found in our cellar in San Gimignano, where you can breathe the fresh air not only filled with Italian culture but Tuscan tradition.

Some review about our wine school
  • Hello ,
    I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much my group enjoyed the evening. It is my hope that you folks enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Hopefully, everyone is on board to do one again next year. You an your team did a marvelous job.
  • I would like to take a moment to thank you for sending Ida to conduct our wine school at Highlands Ranch Golf club. She was, as usual, a fantastic representative of you winery. She had the group in the palm of her hand and everyone loved her and of course your wines. This was the first event of this kind by the staff at the club and everyone has told me that they had a great time and we should do more of this type of event. Again thank you, Ida and all of the people that make your wines wonderful, I will enjoy them now and in the future.

  • I sit here in Philadelphia with a big smile that has the size equal to the length between my 2 ears. I can not begin to tell you how gifted we were to have your niece, Ida, present to us, and my group of 20 of my closest friends, the wonderful products that bear the name of Torciano, last night.. Her presentation was professional, entertaining, warm and friendly. Everyone loved her, and we are so blessed that we got to experience the time that she spent with us. She was also a tremendous help to us in the kitchen to assist in the preperation of the food we served last evening. You are a lucky group to have such a marvelous person, not only in your company but also in your blood lines.
    We are looking forward to seeing her again in the future, as we very much would like part 2 of this story to continue. Millie grazie for making this whole spectacular evening possible.
    Ciao and again, Bravo.

  • I wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Lillo did at our Wine School event this past Thursday night. Lillo is most knowledgeable as well as entertaining at the same time. He held us all spell bound during our class.
    I cannot thank you enough for a most enjoyable evening. If I closed my eyes, I could almost be back in Italy at the winery.
