“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This was our first trip to Tuscany and our first experience with a wine tour & tasting in Italy. The grounds of San Donato were absolutely beautiful and this wife-husband pair really know their stuff!! While the husband was off with potential clients, his wife gave us the full history of the vineyard, the Italian approach to wine making, and the general philosophy to wine in Italy (wine IS food). We were then led upstairs to a private room filled to the brim with locally sourced produce, meats, cheeses and two liters of wine. Probably the most memorable and delicious food experience in Tuscany!!! We'd recommend this lovely vineyard (and its even lovelier owners) to anyone interested in a true Tuscan experience!

We actually stayed next door (Antica Dimora) but visited for dinner and had both a wonderful meal and fun time...

First up, for dinner, make sure you book ahead - call or pop in. They speak excellent English and probably even other languages too...

Dinner is a set menu of local fare with ingredients all locally sourced (or from their farm) and I believe also fully organic. It also includes the table wine (both white and red as well as dessert wine and grappa). The hosts are happy to share wine pairings advice for their other wines too and also just chat about farm life in Tuscany.

A wonderful experience and a must-visit place just near the overwhelming tourist haven of San Gimignano.

After taking a Tuscan cooking lesson at Il Vicario where we were served San Donato's wine, we drove there on our last day to check out their store. Their wine is well-priced and fantastic; have already polished off the first bottle back at home. We also purchased cans of their olio for gifts and a salami for ourselves. We've also dug into the salami and it is delicious. Well worth it! We wished we had stayed either here or at Il Vicario instead of the traditional hotel where we stayed.

Great base for exploring Tuscany. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The property was stunning and it was nice to have our own little apartment. The room was clean, spacious, and cozy. And then of course there's the wine, olive oils, honey, etc. Breakfast was good and we heard lots of good things about the dinner, although we didn't have a chance to try it for ourselves. The only slight downfall was that the mattress was too firm for us. But that certainly won't stop us from going back!

We had the good fortune of having a delicious lunch with friends at Fattoria San Donato. Some of the best tasting food we experienced and great wines too. The scenery is picturesque, the hosts are very friendly and helpful. We plan to go back for sure

WOW! We came here for a wine tasting and lunch and had one of the best days of our whole 3.5 week trip in Italy. The food was absolutely amazing, the wine delicious and most of all the service was so friendly and welcoming. We were travelling without a car and were even helped with a taxi waiting for us when we got off the bus at San Gimignano. We hope one day we can come back again and we will definitely recommend your restaurant to others. Thank you!

Came here on a 'boys walking weekend' and found the apartments spacious, the owners very helpful, and the food plentiful, especially the evening meals. Always someone there to tempt you to try one of the 'home-made' wines. A short distance away from San Gimignano but owners arranged a good value taxi for us and recommended a great restaurant in which to eat.
