Gabriella was a highlight to our 3 week Italy and Sicily adventure. Stumbled upon her place and spent one hour of delightful wine tasting.

We loved Gabriella and her wine
Apr 2019 • Couples
Gabriella treated us to one of the most fun wine tastings we've experienced. She brought a certain magic to describing her family vineyard and the wines they make from her enchanted cellar-like shop in Cortona. Her expertise is sublime, but it's her passion and character that really made this our best wine tasting experience. We will be toasting with Romeo wines with fond memories. They are quite tasty, as is her limoncello. She spoiled us.

Gabriella Was Awesome!
Sep 2018 • Couples
We had driven from Rome this morning, found our lodging in the farming area in the valley and made our way to Cortona, the town proper on the hill. After strolling around and checking out a few shops we stopped for lunch, then made off to see more shops.

As we were walking past a winery tasting room there was a charming woman just reopening after her break. She invited us in and her magnetism was fabulous. We stopped in to look and she insisted we taste her wine. Gabriella was amazing. She discussed the wines and how they are made, but most of all she was gracious with us. We had an absolutely fabulous time with Gabriella!

Bottega dell 'Eretico is the name of the tasting room. The parent company is Romeo Organic Winery, the company that actually makes the wine.

The wine is very good, and if you’re in the US you will recognize the prices of these excellent wines from Montepulciano are surprisingly low. We shipped six bottles home through her and bought a couple extra to take on our trip with us. Her shipping was a lower cost than any other shipping for which we paid, but her wine arrived a couple of weeks later too; I assume the cost was tied to the shipment duration.

If you visit Cortona and like wine I highly recommend a stop at Romeo.

Wine tasting with Gabriela!!
Oct 2017 • Couples
Our host Gabriella was just the best. She is a real character and made our wine tasting experience all that better. The wines are very nice but you will pay a little more for them than in other places. But they are very good.
We spent a good hour in her company and it was time well spent. Give it a try and she does her her stuff.

It is said that if a human drinks from fairy wine, he or she will see fairies...

If you will travel to Cortona, and sure you love wine and search some good one, this place you must visit first of all! Eretico is name of wine from winery Romeo, which is one of TOP at Montepulciano. Romeo produce high quality wines as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Rosso di Montepulciano,Toscana Rosso IGT., VinSanto etc. The Bottega is small one-room space on ground floor with big old wooden door, seems like some cellar entrance. But really it's very cozy inside. Gabriella - very friendly, pleasant, sympathetic and bewitching woman, she is the soul of this local, really wine fairy. Gabriella knows everything about wine, is is pro. I am sure you will enjoy your wine tasting and talking with her as me and my husband when we come here sometimes during our visit(s) to the Cortona. Here i see some negative comments, and it it makes me surprised, confused. I think what it's some kind of mistake… the prices  are right, the wines are very good, maybe somebody has bad taste or was out of sorts… and everywhere are searching for buckshee, free and cheapest staff (IMHO).

Loved Gabriella and her shop!
Oct 2016 • Family
My daughter and I wandered into her shop because we saw that it was organic and we appreciate that. Gabriella had us take a seat and presented all her wines with her silky accent. What entertainment!! We loved it. We tried all the wines, the honey, lemoncello, grappa, Vin Santo, and Olive Oils. Ended up buying some wine, honey, and Olive Oils. Love the presentation and loved listening to Gabriella. It was a wonderful respite from walking all the zip zaggy, up and down streets of Cortona.

Gabriella and vino - a perfect pair
Sep 2016 • Couples
Interesting to read prior reviews and see how most people appreciated Gabriella and greatly enjoyed the tasting of her families organic wines plus possibly tasting the olive oil, grappa and limoncello. My wife and I wandered into this wine shop and found Gabriella to be quite enchanting. The wines we tasted were high quality wines from the Montalcino and Montepulciano regions under the Romeo label. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino was exceptional as was the 2011 Lipitiresco a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The 1999 Vin Santo Di Montepulciano was silky smooth. We bought all three and never once felt pressured into buying. If you go to Cortona do yourself a favour and try the wines in this wine shop. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Wine great. Pressure to buy... Not appreciated
Nov 2015 • Couples
Beware of wine tasting invitation. You are expected to buy! My wife and I were invited by Gabriella to taste her wines, including Grappa and Limoncello. Offered big smiles and gracious attitude. Until we told her were were not going to buy any wine as we were leaving Cortona the next day and did not want to buy wine and risk the trip home. Shipping was $70 euro for three bottles so that was not an option. Gabriella immediately got upset and told us she was charging $5 E per person for tasting. There are much better places in Cortona to taste wine than Bottega Dell'eretico.
