“Authentic Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

Poggio Alloro seems to have it all: a delightful Tuscan family running a picture perfect farm with superb views of the towers of San Gimignano. Ranging from the farm tour (including the Chianina cows and their newborn calves), to the winery tour, wine-tasting, olive-oil tasting, cooking class and wonderful dinner setting with an open fire, Sarah's establishment is superlative. Though we did not stay there, I can imagine that a few days on the farm would be a treat.

“A lovely tuscan experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

Went to this farm as a day trip from Florence with a tour group called Walkabout. This was a highlight of the day. A lunch and wine tasting was provided. All food and wine is organic. We viewed the farm and saw the animals and vinyard. This place is close to San Gimignano and the views from this property snd the restaurant are excellent. The tour cost 80 euros which was a very reasonable cost for a bus trip through Tuscany highlighting the traditional food and quaint medieval villages and exquisite scenery.
