I'm really looking forward to going back to San Gimignano. I haven't been in years and next week I will be participating in the Anteprime there. I hope to meet Natalia and other friends whose wines I know from the denomination. Vernaccia di San Gimignano became a DOCG in 1993 but I think it has not gotten the attention it deserves, certainly not in recent years. They are hosting a tasting comparing different regions of Italy that are well known for their white wines. I can't wait!
