We popped in without a reservation and asked for an education. 24 wines later we begged him to stop :) Stefano is lovely and knowledgeable and approachable. He made tasting the wines of the area fun. Shipping is not cheap but his wines are very well priced.

The review " the best Chianti has to offer" 25th July perfectly describes the experiance. An experiance is certainly what this is; My husband and I have had wine tastings throughout Australia, Spain and France and this has to be by far the best. Stephano is so generous not only with his extensive wine tasting list but also his knowledge... More

We were surprised by the location. It's small and halfway up a fairly steep hill in Panzano. My boyfriend and I were recommended to go here after visiting Il Molino de Grace winery and we are so glad we did! Stefano was funny, but not at the expense of his guests, which was lovely. We tried at least 15 wines... More

My college roommate and I explored the Chianti region for two days as part of a two week Italy trip. After the first day of driving through the countryside only to be turned away by vineyards or gouged by overpriced, impersonal tastings we set out on day day 2 slightly discouraged. What we found in Panzano and at Stefano's Academia... More

Stefano was great! We got to taste at least 20 great wines, received a lot of useful information and all accompanied by anecdotes and funny stories. We stumbled upon this place by mistake and it turned out to be the best wine tasting experience we've ever had.

Although difficult to locate, you will not want to miss this! Stefano is the most knowlegable, generous man you will meet in the region! If you are interested in wine tasting, you must visit his wine academy! Tasting is free, he earns only his tips, but you will want to tip generously because he is so fun and shares his... More

Amazing wine tasting show. Very knowledgeable sommelier that explained all about the wines we tried. Even if it does not make Chianti a good wine, it's worth the experience.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Stefano's cellar, sampling over 20 local wines. In the end, we had many laughs and an even greater appreciation for wine. It was such a unique experience!

One review hit the nail on the head, you will leave this "wine store" with a big smile on your face. Stefano is a great entertainer, philosopher and wine connoisseur. The wines are local of course and unique, It is not just a unique wine store that offers endless tastings, but a very entertaining experience. You are sure to walk... More

We went based on the reviews, and Stefano did not disappoint! He was entertaining and treated everyone like family. I would recommend carving out at least an hour if not more to fully enjoy the experience.
