In our 2 weeks of travels in Rome and Tuscany there were two places we stayed that stood out and this was one of them. Spend a wonderful 3 nights here.
Location is about 1.5km down a (bumpy) unpaved road. the great thing about that is when you arrive you really feel that you've got away from the world. In the distance is a great view of Montepulciano and the church of San Biagio (a great building you get to drive past every time you come and go from San Gallo). We had the place to ourselves and were in the top floor suite with the large fireplace, cleverly hidden kitchen (in an armoire), big bedroom and a modern bathroom the size of some bedrooms we saw at other hotels.
We were greeted by the winery owner, Olimpia, her husband and young daughter. They were very helpful. Over the course of the stay we met her father and sister who were equally friendly and eager to share their knowledge of the area and the winery.
At night it is wonderful to look up and see a sky full of stars. It is very quiet, the beds are very comfortable and it was hard to get up in the morning. There is a small basket of jams, melba toast and coffee for breakfast. We bought in groceries from the store. There are several restaurants in the area. Driving up into Montepulciano (at least the end closest to San Gallo) is a test of gear changing, narrow lanes and switch backs but once you do it once you get the lie of the land.
Definitely recommend San Gallo.
