Had a great tour of the place with Fausto and a fantastic lunch. It is ideally located for a trip in to San Gimignano as well. Recommend it!

We found the winery after a morning visiting San Gimignano We chose the option of 3 tastings and a food for 13 euros each. The wines were explained to us beautifully and all were really lovely. The bread, cheese, tomatoes and olives were a perfect accompaniment. We watched a storm approach over the hills and we were accommodated inside as... More

Amazing wine tour, especially for the price! My family and I were visiting Siena and I was deadset on making a trip to the Tuscany countryside for a wine tasting and tour. After reaching out to a couple vineyards and looking on trip advisor, I came across Sovestro in Poggio Winery. We made a reservation for 4 with a tour,... More

Beautiful vineyard with stunning surroundings. We pre-booked the wine tasting with lunch which was excellent value for money. The food was tasty and fresh. The wine was smooth and complimented the food. We purchased all the wines we drank! I think that says it all. A lovely experience whilst visiting Tuscany.

We loved our visit to this lovely winery!! The vineyard tour was very informative, the lunch was delicious, and the wines were fantastic. We stayed in San Gimignano while in Tuscany. Although we had a car, we walked to the winery and had amazing views of San Gimignano from the country road that we walked. When we saw this place... More

We came for the lunch and wine tasting and really enjoyed our visit. Fausto was very personable and knowledgable and happy to share his experiences with others. We learned a great deal about making wine. Very interesting. Lunch was excellent as well and we left our car here and walked the 30 minutes to San Gimagnano which was a pretty... More

We came for the wine tasting this afternoon and had a wonderful time. Fausto was very welcoming and knowledgable and gave us a great introduction to the basics of wine making. The good was excellent and the wines equally so. At 25 Euros per person, it was fantastic value and all in the shadow of beautiful San Gimignano. Highly highly... More

My daughter and I stayed in San Gimignano and visited this small and beautiful winery on day two of our trip. They only produce three types of wine (one white and two red), but work hard to ensure they get certified for the Chianti label. Fausto was very knowledgable and we learnt a lot in the short visit. It was... More

Dear "BTC01", the lunch we serve is simple but everything is fresh and genuine, that's probably the best ingredients! Obviously a good wine made with passion and only natural products helps :-) Hopefully next time there will be a room available to stay with us and you'll experience the cooking class as well. All the best until then! Ciao Fausto... More
