Wine shops are on almost every corner in Florence, but what sets this shop apart is the incredible service you receive upon entering. The owner Tony and his family are incredibly knowledgeable about wines and have a mind boggling selection. We were honored to spend a couple afternoons unwinding in this oasis.

This family operated wine shop located by Sante Croce has a wonderful selection of Italian wines, olive oils and balsamic vinegar. A wine tasting with our friends was a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon with Laura. She really knows her wine! And the shop sells and ships anywhere..

When we entered the restaurant we were taken to the very back of the restaurant to rather a long table (for a couple). We had difficulty understanding the menu and the owner did not speak as much English as we needed to figure it out. But after selecting our food he selected our wine. Delicious! The food presentation was wonderful.... More

Although we didn't end up buying anything, the owner of the shop was gracious and informative. The selections were numerous and the atmosphere was friendly.

Here you will be welcomed as if you were a member of Tony Sasa's family! Great boutique wines(some of them impossible to find elsewhere)... Be sure to try jams, olive oil and balsamico. From wines, I recommend Martina Brunello and Arena Amarone. I hope you will enjoy the visit as much as we did!

AMEX Platinum Travel Services recommended that we stop by to see Tony Saso, the proprieter. Unfortunately, Tony had just returned from a trip to the United States so he was unable to meet us. However, he coordinated a warm welcome and tasting at the Enotea with his assistant. The wine selection is not large but contains a number of the... More

Our tour guide recommended this wine shop while on an excursion to Florence. The owner was well traveled and very knowledgeable about the issues of getting wines in Ontario. We sampled and purchased two great reds that we could not get back home. We were told only limited numbers of each wine were produced. Not being 100 percent trusting, I... More

Do not waste your time or money!! We purchased two very expensive bottles of wine and we found the same bottles in two different stores in the US for almost half the price. I emailed the owner and received an email back that said that they charge more because they do not charge for the tasting. They should have let... More

I've been to this wine shop twice...once in 2009, and again in 2010. Tony Sasa and his wife run a sweet and comfortable shop, with wines and olive oil for tasting. They can also set you up for a wine tour in Chianti (ask for Max!), we had a wonderful time! He also ships to the US, very reasonable prices.... More

This little shop was recommended to us by our guide on a tour of Tuscany, based in Florence. In 2009, walked in and Tony set up a wine tasting for us on the spot. A full year later, walked in out of the blue, and he remembered us from our prior visit--recalled actual facts about us, not just pretending familiarity.... More
