We came here on a bit of a whim - so pleased we did. Emailed ahead for lunch which was ENORMOUS with delicious cheeses/ hams/ salads/ home wine. Not ideal if you are driving because you'd want to settle in for the afternoon! So play scissor, paper stones to see who has to drive! A beautiful place.

Just 2-3 miles from the hill town of San Gimignano, Italy was this small working farm with its B&B. Our room was a triple and it was adequate. The fresh air, the views from the windows, and the quiet were wonderful. The pool was refreshing. Breakfast was very good but dinner was exceptional. The guests, staff, and their family all... More

Fattoria San Donato is a b&b; but once or twice a week they organize dinner for their guests who are staying with them at that moment.

Now staying... More

The wines from this vineyard are great value and seriously good. The Vernaccia was one of the best we tried.

After about 10 complicated and unsuccessful phone calls to other farms asking for an afternoon of wine sampling and a bite to eat, Umberto at Fattoria San Donato gladly invited us down for some wine and 'a bit of food'. After driving about 10 minutes out of San Gimignano we arrived at the beautiful farm to be greeted by Umberto... More

We stayed at San Donato for three days, and the homemade food and wine was absolutely splendid.

We have been to FSD twice for their lunch/wine tasting in the backyard garden, once with a tour group and once with a small group of friends. Both experiences were wonderful. All the food was fresh and wonderfully prepared. The lunch buffet included delicious, fresh, locallly grown vegetables, meats and cheeses of the region, and of course, wine from the... More

we stayed here for three nights on our recent trip to Italy and had dinner and lunch. Outstanding food, much of it fresh from the farm or from local merchants and excellent wine and olive oil. Federica and Umberto were gracious and excellent hosts.

We did not stay here, but visited for lunch and a wine tasting. The food was simple but very well done and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Bravo!
