We had a great little tour this August at Sovestro in Poggio Winery. We really liked our host Fausto and his easygoing way of telling us about the work at their winery. The place is within a walking distance from San Gimignano, which is cool if you want to enjoy the wines as well.

12 friends from Australia, we rented a beautiful villa in the tuscan hills and needed a couple of activities to pull us away from the villa.

We were so thankful that they allowed... More

My fiancee and I traveled around Italy in a whirlwind 10 day trip. We decided to spent the last few days in San Gimignano, using it as a base for further exploration of Tuscany. After looking at reviews, I eagerly booked a wine tour and lunch at Sovestro in Poggio Winery. It was one of our favorite memories of the... More

We took the bus to San Gimignano to have lunch and a winery tour at Sovestro. Overall it was a perfect afternoon with perfect weather. The tour was a great way to see the lands and hear about how they all work together to harvest the land. The tour and the lunch and tasting was only 25 euros and worth... More

We had a wonderful wine tour at Sovestro in Poggio. Our hostess Barbara was very knowledgeable and kind. The location is beautiful. We also had the tasting menu with different wines from the winery, which was a great way to try their produce - all of which was delicious. Very good value.
