An easy 15 min walk from San Gimignano, an informative tour of the vines and olive trees with a most informative host followed by a relaxing time sharing some food and local wine. Rooms are also available to rent that looked very nice.

We have visited a few times as we got married in Certaldo which is close to San Gimignano. First time we came with our parents in October 2015 and we had a tour and lunch after. Then we came again in May 2016 me and my now husband - we just popped in for lunch and to buy some wine... More

I, my wife, my son, and his girlfriend went on a trip of a lifetime to Italy. Three days in Rome, seven in Florence. What do they remember as the BEST thing? Sovestro in Poggio. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. You can actually see San Gimignano from the house. We're not red wine drinkers but 3/4 of what we brought... More

It was the end of a long day, we were headed home from San Gimignano and happened upon the sign for oil/wine. We turned in, the place was closed. Luckily Fausto was still on property and he treated us to a tasting of their fabulous wines and the to-die-for olive oil. The estate is beautiful with small cottages, a pool... More

We booked a wine tasting and tour. The tour was limited to the cellar due to miserable weather, but i found it quite interesting. Lunch was simple but tasty. They produce (and serve) 3 wines. I thought the price was very fair. All in all i would recommend it to others looking for a small insight into to the wine... More

We were in Tuscany for just a few days and wanted to do a winery tour. This was the perfect stop. Beautiful, easy to get to and was so informative and the lunch was perfect. The number of people on the tour is limited so you can get your questions answered, it doesn't feel crowded and you get to meet... More

My wife and I visited the estate during a short trip. The location Is beautiful and the views even more so. Barbara showed us around the estate and explained the wine and oil making process. The estate only sells the wine and oil it produces directly from the winery. Everything was amazing and we really enjoyed every second of it.... More

My family reserved a wine tour and lunch at Sovestro in Poggio early on this year without any other information than just reading various reviews about the tour and the place. We finally made it to the event and IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. In fact, it was one of the best experiences we had during our vacation in Tuscany. We... More

We took a relaxing stroll from San Gimignano to the vineyard and were treated to a good insight into wine and olive oil production followed by a tasty lunch with the opportunity to try some of the wines. This was one of the highlights of our holiday and an excellent way to round it off.

We stopped for the Wine tasting tour and it turn out to be one of the few rainy days in Tuscany but they manage to keep it interesting. The tasting area was more like a dining-room were you feel like home. The tapas & wine pairing were delicious, we had a typical dish from the Chianti region and bruschetta. Also... More
