It's been 10 years now since the first time I visited Stefano's shop in Panzano. In my opinion, it is still the best tasting experience around. Stefano walks his guests through the tasting of local wines, olive oils, and other artisanal products all the while...More
Stefano is amazing. A true philosopher whose heart is in the right place. It is clear that he knows his wine and enjoys interacting with people. A must do experience. One gets to sample many different wines from the region which makes this experience way...More
We spent a wonderful afternoon with Stefano, tasting a huge variety of local wines and being thoroughly entertained. A warm and engaging character, Stefano juggled customers throughtout the afternoon and had us all talking with each other and being social. The wines were great on...More
We were given a warm welcome by Stefano. He is very patient and well knowledgeable of the wines served! We were struck with the fact that although we tasted a long list of wines in no time he has pushed to sell the products. He...More
Having stumbled across it by accident on a lazy Sunday afternoon, we had the most fantastic wine tasting with the unforgettable Stefano. Cannot recommend highly enough, delicious wine, expert knowledge and great stories!
Our first full day in Tuscany and we find this place on our bike ride. Having read the reviews and being wine lovers, we stop for a tasting, even though it is just after 10. Stefano is quick to let us know it is ‘wine...More
What a Tuscany Highlight. Parked for free in a half-empty and nearby lot, got good Panini’s across the street and ate them on the church steps with only a handful of other tourists wandering around, then walked in without a reservation and had our own...More

I agree with Slaventi's recommendation - contact Stefano and set up a time to taste wines with him. He is such a delight! And he may event throw in some dessert wine or olive oil. He doesn't charge for the tasting; he's likely hoping visitors will instead purchase wine. He handles shipping to the states/Canada for you (~$100/case) or you can take a couple bottles with you to enjoy at your hotel. Walk up the street after your tasting for a snack/lunch and beautiful view il Vinnaio.
