Wonderful shop with local food and wines
Aug 2019 • Solo
La Buca di Montauto is a shop, where you can buy local food and wines, located in the old town of San Gimignano, a wonderful medieval town in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. The shop is charming, with a wild boar outside. Here you can buy local wine (especially Vernaccia di San Gimignano grapes) and local food like cheeses, cured sausages, products with truffle and obviously products from wild boar. Also, it is possible to taste some of these local products, if you enter at the end of the shop: top for gourmets or gastrolovers. Very recommendable!

Great little shop to taste Pecorino cheeses & wild boar salami in the quaint hill town of San Gimignano! Shared a sandwich on a great crispy roll 😋

Incredible local specialties and lovely staff
Aug 2019 • Couples
A pleasure to speak to the family behind this wonderful business, who farm their own boar, olives and vineyards - and of course - produce incredible wine, boar prosciutto, grappa and wonderful cheeses. We could have stayed for hours - and happily bought everything in the store. Loved seeing three generations of the family there too. If you can, Buy your wine here and box it up instead of in the bigger cities. You’ll find some gems.

Wonderful afternoon stop!
May 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend and I were mooching around San Gimignano in the Mood for tagliere. We found a few places but this one had a sign outside saying they not only serve but also produce all their own products. We trusted this and went inside where the owners sat us at the table. At that moment the owners son was having his dinner and they asked if little Lorenzo would disturb us. We of course said it was okay and ordered some wine and tagliere of salami for two and some cheeses for me. The food was wonderful and went down well with the red wine. The owners were very friendly and we enjoyed interesting conversations with them about wine and food and all things good. We passed a lovely hour or so in this place and would recommend it! If we return to San Gimignano we will definitely pass by again!

Pretty special shop for meat, wine, and local specialty food products, and you just want to stay in the area long enough to eat some of everything!

A treasure trove of fantastic local produce, showing off why this area is a foodie Mecca - the boar products are centre stage - I’d have spent a fortune had it not been for the flight home
Prosciutto for our evening meal with cheese & wine.
Opted for some choice dried mushrooms which will go in Barolo wild mushroom risotto for friends at home.

This was one of the great stops we made - and it happened by chance. The deli has an amazing collection of meats - prosciutto was fabulous. We bought a pile to eat as we walked. wow
