While I didn't spend the night here, I did visit the winery as part of a tour through Tuscany. The property is absolutely beautiful and has gorgeous views of San Gimignano. Fausto, one of the owners (he runs the B and B and winery with his wife Susanna), provided us with a wonderful overview of wine production in the region, and then we got to have a light lunch and sample some of the products. The olives were amazing (and I usually don't like olives), as was the vernaccia. The meal was simple, good food, and everyone was really friendly. If I ever plan another trip to Tuscany, I will make sure to spend at least a day or two here, as it looks like it would be very relaxing, and a nice break away from all the tourists (and to have more of those olives)!
