I learned that fattoria means farm in Italian. This one is a cluster of stone buildings that houses tourist accommodations as well as producing wine, olive oil and feeding hungry tourists. We stopped here with a tour group. Very nice lunch, lovely setting.

The beauty of Tuscany is unparalleled as is the hospitality and food of the Fattoria San Donato. Located in the beautiful countryside, yet very convenient for day trips throughout Tuscany. We were with a group and enjoyed an evening meal and tour of the wine making facilities. The amazing variety of freshly grown items was too much to comprehend. All... More

Wow! Wow! Wow! We booked for dinner here on two occasions and were very pleasantly surprised. The cuisine on offer is very authentic and the vast variety astonished us. Seating is communal and this allows you to interact and mingle with various tourists and visitors from around the world. A truly amazing experience! Hospitality at it's very best!

Umberto and Federica did a marvelous job of putting out an inexhaustible spread of meats and cheeses, olives, tomatoes, an eggplant dish, pastas, bruschetta and more, plus white and red wines. We were hosted in one of the main buildings, on the second floor. During our long lunch, Umberto encouraged the 4 kids in our group to go tour the... More

Travelers to Italy are accustomed to the unparalleled beauty of Tuscany. We were lucky to visit this working winery/restaurant/B & B outside San Gimignano for lunch. All of the folks on our tour bought wine to be shipped home and the owner spent a lot of time with us just chatting about all things wine and food. The buffet lunch... More

I can't rave enough about Frattoria San Donato. I came twice this May with a group of friends and then husbands. Both visits were outstanding. We chose the gourmet 40€ tasting and were overwhelmed with what that bought. Firstly, however, our hosts were delightful, engaging, informative and obviously passionate about their vineyards and produce. The tables were laid with real... More

San Giminiano, the city of dozen towers, on the hills of Siena. This cozy and fabulous village, patiently restored by the owner and his family, will warmly welcome you for a stay in the charming rooms, wine tasting and Tuscan food. Very much advised, for a couple of nights or a longer stay to explore the region!!!

We visited this tiny tiny winery two years ago and bought a case to ship home. The family was so accommodating and sweet we decided to return for a night & breakfast on route to Siena. Accommodations are rustic, clean and real. Good hot water and heat during November kept us comfortable. It was a fun excursion from our apartment... More

This tour is pretty basic nuts and bolts of wine making- you really appreciate how hard the work can be. The owner provided the tour and was happy to talk about wine making, history, and sharing experiences with our group of 8. They prepared a very tasty Tuscan buffet style lunch that included various meats, vegetables and salads. This also... More
