We booked a wine tasting, tour and light lunch. To our surprise we were welcomed by a Dutch speaking lady, who has been living in Italy for several decades. During the lunch, three Sonnino wines were served. The lunch itself also included the estate’s own honeys (from forest and fields), fig jam, olive oil, olives, vinegar and salami. The first round, several bruschette with tomatoes, pecorino, zucchini and cream cheese were served. Second round melon with ham, third round pasta with tomato and olives and to finish some regional biscuits with the Sonnino dessert wine.
After the lunch we were lucky to have a private tour including the cellars that date back from the 1300’s. Also the Sonnino’s private property with the typical bell tower was very impressive!
All in all a great afternoon with good local food and wine and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend it!

A beautiful location with a very friendly staff. This was our first stop in Montespertoli inorder to meet up with the rest of our group and it was a perfect way to start our vacation. We sat at a long table out on the terrace under a grape arbor and enjoyed some delicous wine, antipasti and an incredible view.

We enjoyed this place so much that it became our go to spot to meet up at the end of the day's tours.

We would definitely return the next time we are back.

Our visit was in early 2019 .

We popped in here on a whim, and we are so glad we did! Getting up to the top of the hill where this is placed is full of breathtaking views. Then the castle and vineyard its self is just devine. The ladies who helped us set up a quick tasting for us for $10...the wine was absolutely delicious! Though we didn't have much time, we had a wonderful experience and would definitely like to go back again.

We spent 2 weeks in the small town of Montespertoli and found it to be the perfect small Tuscan village. Perched on a hill top surrounded by olive groves and vineyards it recalls all those travel posters and ads for the Italian countryside. The winery of Sonnino just adds to the pleasure of the location as the wine and the people there are incredible.

We were looking lost in this little town on the hill. A local English lady spotted us and directed us to Castello Sonnino. After a lovely lunch and wine tasting on the terrace we were given a tour of the winery. The staff here are great and enthusiastic. The cost was 30euros pp. Vegetarian diet catered for. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Grazie.

We were recommend Sonnino castle and it’s winetasting from our AirBnb host and we were not disappointed.

We had a lovely lunch in a beautiful garden while we were served the wine and afterwards Stefano, our host, took us on a tour of the castle grounds while explaining the winemaking process.

Stefano was really knowledgeable and I really appreciated that we could sit down and enjoy the wine in peace and quiet while also being served a home cooked meal. At so many other places you stand around a bar while served the wine, which takes away from the authenticity.

Highly recommend the tour and the tasting. The view from the tower is stunning!

We wanted to find a place to see some wine being made and also taste the wine and have some lunch. This was a remarkable find. Great food, followed by a tour of some unusual and old school ways to make wine. Worth the time and money for sure!
Our sever had a remarkably American accent, so we asked about his background. Born in America, grew up in Italy, spoke English half the time and Italian the rest of the time.
Our lunch came with a flight of their wines. Each course paired perfectly. We had intended to visit a number of actual wineries in the area. After being here, we didn't bother. Nothing else was going to top this one.

My husband and myself, took our two sons and their wives to this beautiful winery, close to the villa we stayed at. We were given a great tour of the winery, learning not only the wine process, but the history of this beautiful place. Afterward, we were given a wonderful lunch, with several wines followed by their awesome dessert wine. We enjoyed this excursion very much. We bought several bottles to drink on our last night in Tuscany. A great way to end our family trip!
