Wine tasting and entertainment by Stefano, all at the same time. We really enjoyed our visit to this small village, with a nice lunch at a nearby restaurant before the wine tasting. I highly encourage everyone to include this visit on their tour of Tuscany.

Please make sure you stop in and visit the amazing Stefano - he offers free tastings, a purely delightful show and make sure you leave with several bottles of wine.

Stefano, I sent you an email but I’m not sure it will not collect dust until your daughters show you how to check your email. We stopped by after our lunch to say goodbye but you were educating a full house on your philosophy of...More

I would not suggest you skip the other wineries in Tuscany, sine they are all interesting and have something to offer. However, this was the best one we did, for sure. Stephano was entertaining, knowledgeable, and a perfect host. The wines were varied and excellent....More

Thanks to tripadvisor reviewers, we went to Stefano's place and had a fantastic experience. Stefano believes in face to face experiences and so his website is under construction, probably permanently. But if you take the time to go visit him in Panzano, you will be...More

Not sure this question made it to Stefano, but my suggestion would be to call and set up your own hour. It is a small shop 😊

I think it better to use solid internet resources to get wine case quality and price at your best advantage, keeping the romantic approach out out of the equation.
