Fausto and Barbara were a delight! The vineyard is a short, lovely walk from San Gimignano and we enjoyed our tour immensely. The food they served for lunch was INCREDIBLE! Best olives I have ever tasted, the soup was the best I tasted in Italy, and the dessert (a tough cookie you dip into a dessert liquor) was delicious as... More

Great 'taste' and insight into the Tuscan wine and way of life. AMAZING value 25€ for a tour and the lunch - tasting VERY generous. The wines they make are lovely and we bought some to take away. We are looking at going back in September to see the difference!

My wife and I recently stayed in San Gimignano for a couple of nights during our honeymoon. We arranged to have a wine tasting at the Vineyard (with lunch) on one of our days, and we had a wonderful time. Barbara gave the tour and hosted us, and she was absolutely wonderful - extremely knowledgeable and articulate in educating us... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The tour was excellent, the walk from San Gimignano to the agriturismo was absolutely lovely, the food was first-class, and the wine was excellent. Possibly the best part of our two-week honeymoon. Don't miss this!

During our October trip to Italy, we were very well surprised when in Florence decided spend a day touring other sites around. Was a long but great day overall, early in Pisa, lunch in Saint Gimignano. Having local food and appreciating local wine. After lunch of course we decided ship 6 bottles to Finland, where we leave, end up learning... More

We went on several wine tasting and food events while on vacation in the San Gimignano, IT. The tasting and lunch at Sovestro in Poggio was one of the best in the immediate region. We were served a local meal with detailed explanations of the ingredients and preparation. We also tasted (generous portions) four of the local wines which were... More

I visited here with my mother as part of a trip to San Gimignano for her birthday, and have to say that the hospitality (and value) was second to none. The house is stunning - they have clearly renovated recently, and it's beautiful. We were the only two people that arrived for a wine tasting and tour that day (it... More

We spent the middle of a day in San Gimignano at the Sovestro winery. I thought I knew something about wines, but i really knew nothing! Spend some time in the vineyard with these folks and then taste the wines. We bought a case there, but it was almost gone by the end of the week. You must try tzibolo!... More

I definitely recommend a visit to Sovestro in Poggio. The winery is a short, beautiful walk down the hill from San Gimignano, and a little out of the way, but well worth the effort it takes to find. Fausto was friendly and informative. He answered all of our questions, and our tour of the vineyard was personalized to our interests.... More

GREAT place to spend part of a day. The folks here are very nice and the information they provide during the tour is something I/We have not heard from any other winery. They not only give you informative information but give you something nice to eat and drink. The four wines they gave us during our meal for the tasting... More
