We shared about 1 hour at Vinoteca terra toscana and we thoroufully enjoyed our time with Fabio, and later his wife Barbara and their two daughters Alice and the little newborn Sara. The shop is in one of the most beautiful streets of wonderful Montepulciano, it is simply decorated and the focus is to share experiences with the knoledgeable owners.... More

We spent an afternoon tasting many different Tuscan wines and were astonished by the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff. We ended up staying for lunch and had great cheeses, meats, and service.

We wanted to buy some montepulciano wine because of its great reputation but know only the basics about wine in this region. We went to another store that was incredily unhelpful and just shoved a couple of expensive wines at us, we bought one which I regret because a couple of seconds later we came across this store and decided...

For years we are visiting the wine shop of Barbara and Fabio. They have a great collection of special wines and they can tell you so much about them that you always want to have more (and I do not regret that at all!!).

Popped into Vinoteca yesterday and was treated to an excellent education on the local Montepulciano wine by Barbara. Don't be put off by the simple look of the shop front - you would be wrong not to spend a little time here. We stayed for about 20 mins and during that time were provided 2 wines to taste. Barbara was... More

This shop is just off the main square. My wife and I visited and Barbara was in attendance. A decent but not huge selection of mainly Tuscan and other Italian wines. She had 3 bottles open for tasting. We tried a very good Rosso di Montalcino and a couple of Vino Nobile Montepulcianos. We also got to talking about Olive... More

We got a very good support and advise from Barbara and Fabio on Nobile wines from Montepulciano. They clearly showed passion for products and outspoken opinions. Fair prices.

We visit different parts of Italy every year, but a stop in wonderful Montepulciano is mandatory. The atmosphere is wonderful, and Barabara and Fabio perfectly reflects this. They offer their great selection of the "King of table wines" with great knowledge of all vintages and are very helpful with shipments. Highly recommended!

Terra Toscana is one of the best palce to buy wine I have ever been. The quality of their wine selection is extremely good and prices are very competitive. The owners Barbara and Fabio are very knowledgeable, professional and extremely kind and helpfull. This place is not what you would expect considering its very touristic location...it's much more !
