Stefano is not only knowledgeable about local wines, but a great storyteller. This is a must for a wine tasting in the chianti region. Reasonably priced wines and a great way to spend a couple of hours

Stefano was a phenomenal and gracious host for this extended tasting. Very knowledgeable, funny, creative, thought provoking and personal ... and very entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed his wines, his stories and his jokes. This is a wine tasting experience like no other!

Stefano was amazing. By far, this has been the best food/wine experience we’ve had during this trip to Italy. And, our ride to Panzano was by chance, how serendipitous. Stefano took us through a thorough tour of the wines from the Tuscan region with fun...More

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
