La Cantina di Fabio is an authentic wine cellar, operating since 1968 in a perfectly located area just out side the main city walls. Coming from the famous etruscan walls, “le Balze” and the church of San Giusto, specifically positioned to provide easy accessibility for foreign buyers, who can load up directly outside the shop. Without traffic restrictions, our unique cellar offers foreigners wine tasting and “operatif” hors d’oeuvre platters, but also we cater to high demand retail suppliers and can sell good quality wine by litre. Our main clients are restaurant owners and foreign clients who stock up while on tour, but also curious tourists who stop by to try local specialities, volterran products and try our wide selection of cold meats, cheese and organic olive oil.La Cantina di Fabio is locatedin B.go S: Stefano, coming from the famous Etruscan walls "Le Balze" and the church of S.Giusto, 300 meters from Porta S.Francesco right there, in a break while walking up into the historic center.Booking Tasting for group.It is possible book group wine tasting and buy products from our shop directly. On site Tasting for a few people.
