Gattavecchi is an historical name in Montepulciano, the name of a family that for four generations has dedicated itself to the production of wine. In 1944 tragic bombing devastated the winemaking business of grandfather Vincenzo. Valente Gattavecchi, with the help of his mother Sidonia, rebuilt the business in the vinery and cellars of Simoneschi-Baroncelli, which had previously belonged to the 12th century monastery of The Padri Serviti. The Vino Nobile Gattavecchi was finally able to safely lie in an ideal, if not unique, place in which to mature.
Selected grapes from the poderi (estate farmhouses) in Argiano, Cervognano and Le Caggiole, three of the best zones for growing Prugnolo Gentile, are brought in for the making of a Vino Nobile of great standing.
In the underground grottos and caves and in the adjacent vaults of the church of Santa Maria dei Servi the wines rest for more than two years before reaching markets all over the world.

Excellent lunch, with wine from the Gattavecchi vineyards, must try the bruschetta assortment, I believe it was called Lilliana’s Fantasy. Consisted of a large platter of crisp crunchy bread with assorted toppings, just delicious. After lunch we were treated to a tour of the wine cellars in the cave below the restaurant. Our tour guide, Daniella is a member of the family and extremely well versed in the history of the cave as well as the wines they produceJames L - TripAdvisor

Best place in this part of Tuscany. A beautiful setting with wonderful views, delicious and reasonably priced food, and friendly and helpful staff. Not to mention great wines and a cellar that includes a two thousand year old Etruscan tomb. If you have time for only one meal in Montepulciano this is where you should go.David Hickson - Google
We met with the owner(son of original) & he discussed the history of the winery and took us through his cellars in Montepulciano. We then had a fabulous lunch with matching wines for each of the courses. A great way to experience the wine & the cuisine!Rhinobetts - Tripadvisor
This place is a must if your visiting Italy. Authentic italian food and not the fake stuff you get in touristy places. You can also buy bottles and have it shipped back to US and the cost is very low. No vat due at the door and I brought 6 bottles. So far every party at my house has been a hit because of their wine. Amazing food, awesome staff and excellent wine.David Carlo - Facebook
Amazing place, we just walked in with no reservation and the host was friendly and nice. Food is great (Steak with Rosemary, and Potatoes with cheese are highly recommended), good wine and nice relaxing view. A must visit if you’re around the areaSara Waguih - Google
