Just a 20 minute walk down the road from San Gimignano. It was a perfect getaway from the crowds that fill the town during the day. We set up our tour and lunch via email directly with Fausto the owner. He led us on a private tour of the vineyards and winery. He took the time to answer all of... More

What can I say, Sovestro is one of those rare places that's listed at #1 like you would expect to see as a place with too many people and ruined. This could not be further from reality. Fantastic food, fantastic wines and amazing staff. Going to San Gimignano? Go to Sovestro. Just do it.

My wife and I visited for a wine/food tasting for part of our honeymoon. The food was so simply, but amazingly flavor filled! We loved every bite. The wine was even better! We learned a little bit about wine making, and then sampled wines later. All of their wines were so good that we decided to buy 3 of each... More

My husband and I stumbled across this place by accident on our way to San Gimignano. Luckily there was space on their next winery tour and lunch so we joined in. The tour was very interesting and I learned a lot about the wine (and olive oil) making process in that area. The lunch was delicious and the wine excellent-... More

Wee loved his explanations and he was very happy to answer our endless questions with good grace. We thoroughly enjoyed the wines that accompanied our meal and were invited to walk around the property to absorb the magnificent views. It is... More

We have just returned from a wonderful lunch and wine tasting- I have wanted to return since visiting with a small group a few years ago. We walked from San Gimignano after a bus from Florence, an easy walk down, a little more difficult on the way up but totally doable! The tour led by Barbara was informative and led... More

We had the pleasure of a winery tour, lunch and tasting hosted by Barbara! She was very informative as she showed us around the vineyard and olive trees. The winery is in a stunning location. We took advantage of the location and visited San Gimignano as well. The lunch was delicious using fresh produce accompanied, of course, by their own... More

Fausto gave a fantastic tour and provided in depth and interesting information about his family estate. He is very personable and passionate about what he does and easily answer any questions. Lunch was very good and, in my opinion, very good value and a great way to spend an afternoon in San Gimignano. Fausto was even kind enough to make... More

My wife and I wanted to ensure we experienced a vineyard tour while we were in Tuscany, and Sovestro in Poggio was absolutely perfect. Our guide Barbara was delightful and very informative during the tour. The lunch included wonderful pairings with the wine to sample. The location was very convienant from town. We could have walked, but decided to drive... More

A fantastic visit to the vineyard. We walked from the town of San Gimignano and was definitely worth the walk. The tour guide was brilliant and very knowledgeable. All of the wine was delicious and I learnt a lot about wine tasting. The good was also very good and authentic. Couldn't believe how reasonably priced the wine was...we bought 8... More
