We spent a lovely afternoon here last month (April). Fausto took us through his vines, explaining the types of grapes they grow, the kinds of wine they make, and so much information about wines in Italy and the Tuscan region. We also visited his olive trees - with an incredible view of San Gimignano. We then enjoyed a delightful lunch... More

Absolutely fabulous, highlight of our trip. We planned to only go for wine tasting but found the cooking class in last minute. Fausto made a special arrangement for us to be able to combine cooking class with wine tasting. The class was so fun and we learned some basic technique of making pasta ragu, gnocchi and tiramisu. We couldn't imagine... More

Dear Lay, I hope it won't be your last time in Toscana but the first of a long series! You still have to try our guestshouse - Guardastelle - and relax by the pool. Waiting your next visit I thank you for this first approach to our wine/food culture. When possible, it's a pleasure to satisfy our guests requests. Grazie... More

My daughter, 17, and I (mom) had a great tour and lunch/wine tasting here in March '17. Fausto was a charming host. He gave us excellent explanations of the wine growing and making processes. It is complicated and takes real expertise! We were there on a sunny, warm day. The view is gorgeous. The dining room is elegant rustic. The... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time with Fausto learning to make homemade pasta, and also learning why we'll never make pasta for a large group! Very informative, with lots of great wine. Thank you Fausto, for making this one of the highlights of our trip!

A great location with breathtaking views of tuscany's sienalese wine region. The terrace tables are perfect to relax, enjoy your wines and taste some goodies of the region. Francesco was a perfect host and explained all the details of their grape types and wine process. Excellent experience.

Ciao Silvana, how you made to do this super-fast review?! You were here less than 24h ago!! I'm happy you enjoyed yourself on our terrace but I'm sorry you weren't able to join the vineyards tour.
