We were brought to this winery by our tour guide Stefano from Florence, and it was a warm and unforgettable experience. The winery tour with the owner, Fausto was an educational and entertaining day. Then the food and wine we were served was so good! My wife told me she wants to come back to Italy just to stay there... More

I really enjoyed our visit to the winery. Our hostess for our wine tasting and dinner was excellent and very informative. She really did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome. Everything about our tour could not have been any better! I really enjoyed the scenery of the vineyard. It was breathtaking. The food, wine and oil were fabulous!!... More

My husband booked this tour during our stay in Italy this fall after seeing it in Trip Advisor. We drove to San Gimignano and did some morning sightseeing then set out by foot on the dirt road for the 20 minute walk to the winery. The walk in itself was breathtaking with beautiful views of the town and surrounding landscape.... More

My husband and I just visited Sovestro Winery. Barbara was our guide and she was absolutely lovely and very knowledgeable about the wine making at Sovestro. The one think I really liked about this winery is that it was small and they produced quality wine. The wine was fabulous. We tried 3 different wines and had lunch. I ended up... More

I came across this winery by chance next to our hotel while walking on the road looking for the bus stop. It is up on a hill with a fabulous view of the countryside. I went to inquire and was told there was a wine tour the next day with some spots available so we booked right away. We were... More

My friend and myself were in Sovestro in October. As there were only two of us, we joined the group of other people for the tour. However, we must emphasize this that we were treated as VIPs. Barbara - our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, funny and making sure we understand everything by answering lots of question from every... More

We traveled to San Gimignano in late September and spent part of our tour (Artviva) at the Guardastelle for a lunch and wine tasting. The food was wonderful! True Italian at it's finest. We were given 4 different wines to try in generous portions, which were available for purchase. They also sell a delicious olive oil which is made on... More

Booked lunch & wine tasting with tour - small group, well looked after. Barbara the host was very informative & personable. It felt like we had been invited to somebody's home. Wine & food (local sourced dishes) superb!

Dear "Spiders8", thanks for your visit and review. Especially thanks to have pre-booked your spot. As a small family vineyard/farmhouse (you can also stay with us) for us it's important to plan the activities carefully to keep the experience private and not commercial with small group. thank again and regards, Fausto More

I and a group of friends were in San Giminnano in late September and spent an afternoon at Sovestro Winery. Fausto was a great tour guide and so knowledgeable in the growing, harvesting, and making of Chianti. He and Susana were perfect hosts and served us a delicious Italian lunch. The wine tasting was exceptional. The wine was fantastic and... More
