Reviewed 6 April 2014

Great 'taste' and insight into the Tuscan wine and way of life. AMAZING value 25€ for a tour and the lunch - tasting VERY generous. The wines they make are lovely and we bought some to take away. We are looking at going back in September to see the difference!

Dear "jezsta",
in September the difference is huge! You can see men at work in the vineyards and the cellar but also San Gimignano and the all area is much busier.
Thank you for your visit, I'm so glad you have shared your experience with a review and I hope that in September you'll stay with us at Agriturismo Guardastelle.

Regards,
Fausto

“Great Winery and Food”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

My wife and I recently stayed in San Gimignano for a couple of nights during our honeymoon.

We arranged to have a wine tasting at the Vineyard (with lunch) on one of our days, and we had a wonderful time.

Barbara gave the tour and hosted us, and she was absolutely wonderful - extremely knowledgeable and articulate in educating us about their wine and olive oil vineyards.

The price was very reasonable for the tour, tasting and lunch, my wife and I left after several hours there and couldn't have been happier - very well done, would recommend to anyone!

“Incredible!!!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The tour was excellent, the walk from San Gimignano to the agriturismo was absolutely lovely, the food was first-class, and the wine was excellent. Possibly the best part of our two-week honeymoon. Don't miss this!

Dear "RedTent1701",

Ciao ciao

“Italy Trip great surprises”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

During our October trip to Italy, we were very well surprised when in Florence decided spend a day touring other sites around. Was a long but great day overall, early in Pisa, lunch in Saint Gimignano. Having local food and appreciating local wine. After lunch of course we decided ship 6 bottles to Finland, where we leave, end up learning it has been the first shipment to Finland. Our additional surprise has been the professionalism of Sovestro in Poggio Winery that delivered to our door in Finland, in less than a week and exactly the way we ordered. Great day, great place and how you discover even small family owned business have a great sense of costumer focus and run their business efficiently. Recommend the place and one day trip through Toscane when in Florence, you can see, Pisa, have lunch in San Gimignano winery, walk through the old stone village and end up the day seeing the interesting Siena and its history too.

Dear "AnaPaulaPereira0170,
that was a tour organised by an agency, which is nice but I think a bit rush.
If you'll visit Tuscany and San Gimignano again, I hope you'll consider to stay with a few nights to enjoy our farmstay and try the full experience of a personal wine tour and, why not, cooking class.

Thank you so much for your visit and purchase!!
Regards,
Fausto

“Good Wine, Great Time”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We went on several wine tasting and food events while on vacation in the San Gimignano, IT. The tasting and lunch at Sovestro in Poggio was one of the best in the immediate region. We were served a local meal with detailed explanations of the ingredients and preparation. We also tasted (generous portions) four of the local wines which were excellent. We sat with two couples who were actually staying at the winery and they had nothing but great feedback on their accommodations, the service, and the flexibility of their host. One couple had arrived a week earlier than planned and the host put them up in special quarters until a cottage came open. We went on a tour a couple of days later and actually hoped we would visit this winery again. Really good food and wines at an reasonable price.
