We were so pleased we managed to get a reservation for this fantastic winery tour and lunch. The speed at which our email request was dealt with was so efficient, as was the further booking confirmations etc. The tour was really interesting and we learnt an awful lot. Fausto was mindful of the heat and sought shade at every possibility,... More

The location is fantastic, a short walk down the hill from San Gimignano, and Fausto and Susanna are great hosts. The wine tour and cooking class were highlights of our trip.

Fausto was absolutely amazing! It was a very intimate group of only 6 and everything was explained in depth. After touring the winery and vineyards we had a delicious lunch prepared by Fausto's wife along with the wine tasting. I highly recommend doing this tour if you're in Tuscany and if you're staying outside of Tuscany, find a way here... More

Everything about this winery tour with lunch was exceptional, from the communication beforehand to Fausto's low-key, knowledgable outline of the winery and olive grove, to the delicious lunch and tasting of his wines. We brought some back with us. This is a very hard-working couple who have something worthwhile to share. I can only imagine how nice it must be... More

This was a very informative tour of the winery, great wine tasting, and delicious lunch. Very well done. They also have accommodations here and I was wishing we had stayed in them.

San Gimignano is a must. This medieval townhill is surrounded by the beauty of Tuscany. We decided to try wine tasting at Sovestro in Poggio Winery and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We walked about 20 minutes to get there, on a back road with a stunning view of San Gimignano. The place is beautiful and... More

San Gimignano is a wonderful area to visit in Tuscany and visting Sovestro in Poggio is a wonderful way to get a glimpse of the local wine making process along with a nice lunch and wine tasting. Barbara did an excellent job of explaining the wine and olive oil production. The wine and food were great.

Fausto gave a excellent and informative tour of his vineyards olive groves and winery. Susanna provided a lovely lunch with wine tasting and advice provided Fausto. The countryside views were super. Wines can be purchased or sent worldwide. Recommend booking by email to ensure you get directions as there are no obvious signs. Allow 15 to 30 minutes walking from... More

Dear "royr123", the reservation is something we really need in advance as we do small group. Often we have to send back people with no reservation, so thank you very much to mention this. The walk from/to town is lovely (about 25-30 minutes) but with this hot summer maybe not the ideal thing to do after wine tasting..... I'm happy... More

We took a cooking class here with Fausto and Susanna. Perhaps one of the most fun and educational things that we enjoyed while in Italy. Wonderful recipes to bring back to the states and very good wines and olive oil. Can't wait to come back.
