San Gimignano is one of our favorite towns in the region, and we have stayed and day tripped countless times. I am embarrassed to say that this recent visit was the first time that we stumbled across Gustavo Mescita Vini, but I promise you that we will return soon.
Unfortunately, we had already had a lovely lunch somewhere else and could only admire the magnificent delights that Giuseppe's mother was making from all of the fresh ingredients that were within arms reach, but that did not prevent us from being drawn into the excitement that comes from being surrounded by local Italians during lunch hour. Giuseppe speaks excellent English, and also displays his talents in making an equally excellent Spritz.
After the initial rush of orders for bruschetta and panini's were fulfilled, Giuseppe shared with us the long history of this multi-generational Enoteca. This history can be seen in the charming surroundings, and should be enjoyed over lunch, or a glass of wine. Much like everything else in Italy, just be sure to relax and let your surroundings reward all of your senses.
I promise that next time we will be having lunch at Gustavo Mescita Vini, and enjoying an assortment of Giuseppe's mother's creations.
