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
