Ricardo served us a wonderful wine and helped us find the restaurant we were looking for, he also was nice enough to call and make us a reservation. I suggest if in need of a nice spot with very helpful people stop and say hello and have a drink.

Very welcoming staff, and one of the largest varieties of wines by the glass I've been to in a while. We sat outside in the sunshine. My partner doesn't drink alcohol, and as they didn't serve non-alcoholic drinks, they suggested he purchased a drink next door, and then join me at my table ... and the staff provided nibbles as...

This is a very nice shop of exclusive typical Tuscan products that owns a small terrace in front of the door where you can taste a very good selection of wines and food. Perfect for light dinners or aperitivo.

This is a small wine store with some tables outside in an idyllic Tuscan town . The owner runs the show . Small plates of prosciutto and melon are served up with a nice caprese salad and Tuscan bread. Wine by glass or bottle round out this terrific little spot. It is what it is which is terrific
