Typical products tasting and wine in Cortona
During the last ten years our wine shop has become a destination point for the discovery of Tuscan and Italian wines. We can now ship wine to Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, South Africa etc, via air, sea, or ground, in wine-safe styrofoam boxes or in pallets. Our shipments are fully insured and include door to door service. Those customers with limited space can choose to leave their wines in our air conditioned storage free of charge, even for an extended period of time.
Our Wineshop in Cortona is open every day of the year (with the exception of Christmas Day) from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. One can sample wines, olive oil and balsamic vinegar with our Italian, English and French-speaking staff.
For those passionate about Tuscan wine, our in-house sommelier Marco is available, with advance booking, to organize and lead custom wine tours to the finest wineries throughout Tuscany (including the Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino).
Every Thursday from May through October we offer free tastings in front of our Wineshop from 4:30 pm till 7:30 pm. These tastings offer the chance to sample some of the best wines of Tuscany and Italy, and are followed by a special wine dinner in one of our local restaurants at 8:30 pm (reservation required for dinner; prices vary for each dinner).
