“Lovely Enoteca in San Gimignano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This deli/wine bar is always cool and quiet. A lovely place to relax and cool off. The owner, Lorenzo, makes his own wine (which is very good) and olive oil and is very friendly and also knowledgeable about local wine. You can taste various wines with a wine card and eat a plate of delicious Tuscan ham and salami. Downstairs, there is an old cellar which the kids like to visit. We come here every year. You can also get wine shipped home.

“Great place to recover medieval Manhattan”

Great place to recover and taste some wine. Nice airconditioned and free wifi. Of course great wine too. We tried the Tuscan chopping board which tasted really great. See pics.

“Great wine tasting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Excellent place for wine tasting and Hors d'Oeuvres. Buy their wine tasting card and taste at your please from the many wines available. Each tasting costs about 1 to 3 euros until the card runs out of money. Good place to relax after all the walking around San Gimi.

“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This place is awesome, from the underground wine cellar feel, to the wonderful wine and the yummy goodies on the menu. A wonderful place to get away from the touristy feel of the main street, this is on a side street and worth seeking out. We did enjoy the house wines in most of the restaurants but loved coming here and being able to select specific wines to the area. A must stop!

We wanted to try nice cheese, wine and ham, hesitated in front of all the tourists shops and ended up in front of this nice shop!!
