Umberto and Federica did a marvelous job of putting out an inexhaustible spread of meats and cheeses, olives, tomatoes, an eggplant dish, pastas, bruschetta and more, plus white and red wines. We were hosted in one of the main buildings, on the second floor. During our long lunch, Umberto encouraged the 4 kids in our group to go tour the... More

Travelers to Italy are accustomed to the unparalleled beauty of Tuscany. We were lucky to visit this working winery/restaurant/B & B outside San Gimignano for lunch. All of the folks on our tour bought wine to be shipped home and the owner spent a lot of time with us just chatting about all things wine and food. The buffet lunch... More

I can't rave enough about Frattoria San Donato. I came twice this May with a group of friends and then husbands. Both visits were outstanding. We chose the gourmet 40€ tasting and were overwhelmed with what that bought. Firstly, however, our hosts were delightful, engaging, informative and obviously passionate about their vineyards and produce. The tables were laid with real... More

San Giminiano, the city of dozen towers, on the hills of Siena. This cozy and fabulous village, patiently restored by the owner and his family, will warmly welcome you for a stay in the charming rooms, wine tasting and Tuscan food. Very much advised, for a couple of nights or a longer stay to explore the region!!!

We visited this tiny tiny winery two years ago and bought a case to ship home. The family was so accommodating and sweet we decided to return for a night & breakfast on route to Siena. Accommodations are rustic, clean and real. Good hot water and heat during November kept us comfortable. It was a fun excursion from our apartment... More

This tour is pretty basic nuts and bolts of wine making- you really appreciate how hard the work can be. The owner provided the tour and was happy to talk about wine making, history, and sharing experiences with our group of 8. They prepared a very tasty Tuscan buffet style lunch that included various meats, vegetables and salads. This also... More

Very welcoming, they were in the middle of giving a large group their meal but had no problem in spending time with us in the little shop below. Some fantastic wines, you can taste them all...and he'll wrap up the bottles in boxes etc. ready for the trip home!

This place is spectacular. Think working farm meets castle village town. This is everything I expected to find in Tuscany. The owners are wonderful hosts and speak fantastic english. We felt like we were at home. The grounds and lodging are beautiful. The wine was very good as well. We ordered take out from the restaurant down the road so... More

Spent one morning on the small but hard working vineyard. Our host was delightful and well knowledgable. The prices are reasonable for their Classico wines! Well worth a visit!

We brought a group of students here for a 2 night stay. Wonderful and generous meals, with many products produced on site including delicous wine! In the midst of the Tuscan countryside but also very close to the town of San Gimignano.
