My husband and I had a tour at this winery in September. It has stunning views (like so many other areas of Tuscany). Fausto was very nice and provided good information on the tour. We also got to sample one of the grapes. The food with the tasting was outstanding and they were very willing to accommodate us as we... More

Very personal and engaging cooking class for 12+. My daughters loved it, as well as my wife and I. Fausto and famiglia were so helpful and charming. All the dishes you make are easily attainable and require bo weird or special ingredients or equipment. We ended up spending from 1100 to well past 1700 making dishes and eating, snd then... More

My friend and I were visiting Italy for the first time and looking forward to eating our way through Tuscany. We searched hi and low to find an authentic cooking class outside of city and among the hills of Tuscany. We were extremely lucky when we found that at Sovestro in Poggio with the charming Susanna and Fausto. We made... More

The winery is a little bit up the hill of the hotel. Don't park car outside the hotel, there is still a minute drive. The owner couple were really nice, explaining all kinds of winery knowledge.a and fun stories of the local boars. Even it was not the grape season, we still felt entertained. The lunch was delightful and light,... More

They were closed and I found out you have to schedule the wine tasting in advance but my husband drove me up and I got to see the grounds. Gorgeous even pulled a few grapes off the vine.

Such a shame that it rained the day we scheduled a tour here, because apparently you walk trough the vineyards on a normal day. As it was raining, we kind of hung out in the wine cellar and listened to Barbara, our guide. I've been to many wineries and tastings over the years, and nobody explained things like she did....

We had the opportunity to visit the Sovestro in Poggio winery earlier this month and it was a delightful experience! We signed up for the tour, tasting and lunch and were very glad we did! Consistent with all all of the tripadvisor reviews, Fausto and Barbara were informative and obviously glad to tell their story. The information was presented in... More

Quite hard to locate but once there, a wonderful experience awaits. Really helpful and interesting tour at which you discover how much attention to detail is needed to make DOCG wines. This was followed by a lovely light local lunch including wine tasting - their white and two reds, as well as a dessert wine. All superb and priced very... More

We visited Sovestro in Poggio for a lunch tasting and tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed learning about the grapes, the olive trees, and the whole process of making wine and being DOCG. The property was a bit difficult to find but the staff was helpful in providing directions ahead of time as well as... More
