Hundreds of bottles of wine to choose from.
Very friendly and knowledgeable owners

In the centre of town where all the restaurants are located
Definitely worth a visit

Really fine wine shop. Wines from all over Italy are available. The family owners have vast knowledge of Italian wines and will help with selections. Wine tasting events are always available. Great spot to have fun while shopping.

Looking at La Cambusa from the outside and just inside the shop, it looks disturbingly like a tourist souvenir trap with pasta, dried porcini and olive oil.
But there is so much more to it. I had during out stay in Stesa developed a taste for the lesser known wines from Piedmonte (at least to my knowledge) - and this was the place to look for them!
Aside of a vast collection of Barolo ranging from expensive to outrageously expensive, there were wines in many price levels and from most of the wine producing areas in Italy - but of cause mostly from Piedmonte.
I took my time to buy a selection of goodies (Daddy's souvenirs), which ended up being a good selection of top Gattinara and some Roero Arneis and Erbaluce de Caluso.
I ended up with quite a few bottles, and as we did some other shopping, the bottles were boxed and packed so I could pick tem up. They even called a taxi for us to bring the valuables back to our rental home. That's good service!
If you're the least interested in good wine - this is a gem, but beware of your money.

The spice bag called bruschetta is wonderful, you just add it into any food, and it adds its flavour. The staff, the owners are very professional to help you choose olive oil or balsamic vinegar or wine for your taste and budget. This is a great shop to buy something to take home or to friends as souvenirs.
