  • We were in September/2017 at this Winery for a tour and lunch with wine tasting. Beautiful place, nice view and good tour. Fine wines and delicious food! The ribollita is unforgettable!

  • The first few days of November with my boyfriend we had the pleasure of doing a short stay in these wonderful lands, by good wine lovers we decided to pay a visit to this company. The choice was great right from the start, close to San Gimignano, easy to reach, nestled in the hills of Siena is this agritourism with rooms, and a beautiful outdoor pool. Here it is possible to do wine tasting of their produce and of their oil in fact the farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The tasting began with the visit of the vineyards, and the explanation very interesting and well done by the owner Fausto, which ended with the wonderful lunch, during which we were able to taste their wines and also oil. In the end it was possible to buy their goods. We were really very good, happy with everything and we met some great products! Highly recommended if you are in the area is a visit to do!

  • Our experience here was absolutely amazing. The wine tour was informative and interesting. The grounds and views are breathtaking. Both my husband and I are vegetarians and they were able to accommodate very well, the food was incredible. The wine was great and you really get the best value for your money
  • Our cooking class was a perfect way to end our 10 day trip of Italy. In fact, it was the highlight of our trip. The magnificent, scenic views from Guardastelle are simply indescribable. We had a blast making traditional Italian food with four other couples. We then spent the afternoon outside enjoying our delicious food with the most incredible wine. Without a doubt this is a must do on your trip to Tuscany.
  • We stopped for wine tasting (which was amazing) and ended up signing up for the cooking class! What an awesome experience! A definite highlight of our 2.5 weeks in Italy. When we come back to Italy, we want to stay here because the property is so beautiful and Fausto is so down to earth and kind! He even responded to an email months later when I asked about a recipe!
  • One of the worst experiences I have had in over 35 years of traveling overseas. We visited Tuscany and decided to go to this winery along with 3 others. We started with this one and would not have ordered wine if we had been to the others prior, but we did not know it offered the lowest quality wine of the 4 wineries we visited. Since we did not know, so we ordered a case of wine. We paid for it but it was never delivered! Fausto did respond to my emails and showed me a signature that was clearly not mine and told me he could do nothing. Where did our wine go? Who knows. Perhaps we were scammed from the start. So, we are out $400 USD and will never visit this winery again for 2 reasons. The wine is average and the customer service is as bad as it gets. It boiled down to they already had our money...so it was our problem.
  • Was one of the highlights of our trip. Jaw dropping natural beauty of mountains and vineyards surround you. The hosts are kind and friendly - service was excellent. We enjoyed our hearty breakfasts, the pool, the wine and taking in the breathtaking view. The walk to San Gimignano isn't too far (~25min) and if you are returning when its dark, you'll catch a glimpse of the many fireflies that light up a field just outside this establishment.
