Founded in 1720, (celebrating its 300 year anniversary in 2020) the Torciano Vineyard has been in the Giachi family for 15 generations! The owner Pierluigi Giachi and his extended family, who make up over 50% of the staff, produce over 700,000 bottles of wine per year from its vineyard in San Gimignano. To say Pierluigi and his family are passionate about wines is a gross understatement. They have gone above and beyond the traditional vineyard tours to offer a truly exceptional range of wine experiences including by boat in the Mediterranean Sea, by air for a helicopter tour of Tuscany or combining wine tasting with other unique activities like driving a Ferrari, horse back riding, truffle hunting, cooking classes, archery, yoga and the list goes on!  They share that passion promoting their wines and experiences throughout the United States and we encourage our travel advisor partners to consider their diverse range of experiences for your clients. 

We encourage you to view the Tenuta Torciano Video, then select your wine experience from their 2020 Experiences Brochure

Travel advisors wishing to visit the Torciano Vineyard in 2020 can take advantage of this SPECIAL OFFER in celebration of our 300th anniverary.

As the Waterstone team and myself travel around the world, we are often introduced to special people and companies who own and manage enterprises that we find interesting and feel they can add value to travel advisors. These companies are driven with passion and very importantly, and not unlike everyone associated with Waterstone, they are committed to working with travel advisors. We wanted to find a way of bringing these special people and partners to your attention so we formed “Friends of Waterstone.” These companies don’t fit into our Waterstone Collection as a hotel or DMC but are still connected to us and add texture, enthusiasm and share our thirst for travel.

It is with pleasure that I introduce you to our “Friends…..amici, amis, amigos;” our very special “Friends of Waterstone”.
