Stumbled across this shop today and spent a very pleasant half hour or so with Stefano. To be fair, to call it a shop is doing it a disservice. A great and unexpected experience, sampled a number of very local wines, oil, chocolate and vinegars....More

Before one enters what outside appears yet another Tuscan boutique wine shop, the aria of Puccini inspired investigation: "vincero, Vincero, VINCERO". Inside seems ostensibly a buffoon of some medieval court dressed somewhat appropriately and engagingly, except appearances in this case are altogether deceiving. Stefano could...More

Entering Stefano´s Academia needs some time (at least 30 minutes) to enjoy a complete wine experience. Professor Stefano will lead you through a very complete Chianti wine tasting experience mixed with classical music, art and philosophy. He speaks Italian, English and many other languages.

Not sure this question made it to Stefano, but my suggestion would be to call and set up your own hour. It is a small shop 😊

I think it better to use solid internet resources to get wine case quality and price at your best advantage, keeping the romantic approach out out of the equation.
