We attended a tour / tasting with wine and appetizers at your vineyard. Sommelier Rika was friendly and informative. The wines were lovely, and the appetizers were awesome. We felt well fed with information, history, wine, cheese, meats... It was a great afternoon, another beautiful memory in our Tuscany journey. We would strongly recommend you visiting this lovely boutique winery. Beautiful setting, lovely grounds, postcard perfect.

We stayed in San Gimignano and decided on lunch and tasting at Guardastelle as it was close and within walking distance ( don’t follow google map’s directions- trust your instincts it will shave 10/15 mins off walk !)
The tour of vineyard was both enjoyable and informative and was given by a very engaging lady from Finland (can’t remember name sorry). This was followed by the tastings - we went for the 5 wines each of which was very acceptable in their own way. The tastings accompanied the lunch which was the local hams / salamis / cheese which were excellent. They even accommodated our token Vegan. This was all finished off with some cake and dessert wine. All in all a very good few hours spent at Guardastelle.

We visited this beautiful winery, end of august 2022. Our tour by Rica was incredible, she was very knowledgeable, and we learned so much about not only their particular winery but about the Chianti wine area. She was also extremely friendly and all the staff we encountered there were great. Our lunch was absolutely delicious and it really was reflective of a traditional Tuscan meal. Would highly recommend this winery for a great tasting of wine and local dishes in a scenic environment.

My wife and I stayed at Guardasteele in 2015 and loved the place. We were in the area again in June 2022 with our family and went back for a wine tasting and lunch. It was even better than we remembered. The food and wine are very good, but what really makes it great are the people. It is also a beautiful setting. It is walking distance from San Gimignano so I'd suggest spending the morning in town and then walk to Guardastelle in the afternoon.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Tuscany this is a great place. Friendly, well located, beautiful grounds and accommodations and delicious food and wine.

Guardastelle is absolutely beautiful and has stunning panoramic views of San Gimi and Tuscan countryside. Our guide Rika was very friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the tour of the vineyard and the cellar. The highlight though was the lunch they served with the wine tasting. The wines (DOCG vernaccia and chianti) were lovely and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend visiting.

Amazing lunch and wine tasting. Learned so much about wine and had a great lunch. Very nice how close to San Gimignano it was. Is very walkable or you can drive/take a taxi. The host was great and we didn’t know but you can also stay here! There is a pool and I imagine it would be a nice and relaxing place to stay.

They were wonderful host. Staff is pleasant and heartwarming
Breakfast is good. Assisted us with recommendations to different wineries and restaurants in the area. Great location and very close the Town of San Gimignano
The only hiccup was the wifi which was not working.

Ciao Sal, a pleasure has been to host you and thannks for taking part of our wine tour. I'm happy you enjoyed all our recommendations about restaurants and wineries; hopefully next time you will make time for the swimming pool as well. Maybe in your room wifi doesn't have a strong signal but I do remember the other 3 people in your party were able to connect successfully. Best regards Fausto & Susanna

This vineyard was just superb! The hosts were so gracious, we had toddlers with us and they were so patient with us. We are also vegetarian and they were able to adjust the menu for us to accommodate our diet. The location is just beautiful with an incredible view of San Gimignano. Would highly recommend a stop to Guardastelle! It was our favorite place during our entire time in Tuscany!

Grazie mille. Fausto & Susanna
