In a region like Tuscany, a land of wines with a strong personality and centuries-old traditions, entering a wine shop is like experiencing at first hand a story of great study and dedication, of passions and knowledge handed down.
It is along this line of careful selection of labels and bottles that Florence's wine shops are grafted. We have found the most historic and well-stocked ones, temples of age-old tradition and endless taste.
Gambi Wine Shop
Via Senese, 21r ph. 334 106 0004
Founded in 1957 as a flask shop, today Enoteca Gambi has the dual role of bakery and wine shop. The leitmotif is the refinement and particularity of its proposals: from the selection of fresh bread and pastries from five different local bakeries (such as the bozza di Prato or the bread from Montespertoli Dei Grani Antichi) to a rich selection of Italian wines, liqueurs, sparkling wines, champagnes and dessert wines. An online sales service has also recently been opened.
Bonatti Wine Shop
Via Vincenzo Gioberti, 66-68, ph.055 660050
Enoteca Bonatti was founded in Florence in 1934, when wine arrived in barrels and was bottled, directly on the spot. There was no brand or denomination to guarantee the quality of the wine: the guarantee was the dealer himself. This concept has not changed in over seventy years of activity. Since then, three generations have managed the shop. In the wine shop you can find a selection of wines and spirits from all over Italy and abroad, with a special focus on France.
Via delle Oche, 27r, ph.055 214966
A stone's throw from the Duomo, in a medieval alley, you will find the Alessi wine shop that has been there for more than 50 years. The entrance between vaults and ancient wooden beams is reserved for wine tasting, you can sit in peace and quiet and converse in front of an excellent glass of wine accompanied by cold meats and cheeses. Descending into the cellar, you enter a 300 square metre hall, where the perfect temperature and humidity for conservation, in symbiosis with a skilful distribution of lights, allow you to admire more than 2500 types of wine.
Vignoli Bottle Shop
Via Cimabue, 9r, ph. +39 055 234 3220
Founded in 1936 and owned by the Vignoli family since 1970, this wine shop has all the family flavour of the shops of yesteryear. An ancient structure of 60 square metres, with an underground cellar for storage, houses a wide variety of bottles, both national and international, starting from 10 Euros. From a bottle of 1955 Brunello at 3,500 Euro (the most valuable in the shop), to some great Tuscan classics, organic wines and Barolo at just over 15 Euro. The assortment of liqueurs and spirits is excellent.
Andrea Amidei's Wine Shop
Borgo Pinti 8 r, ph. + 39 348 3816020
After years of experience in the world of wine, in 2011 Andrea Amadei decided to open his own Enoteca in the heart of Florence, in one of the city's historic boroughs just a few steps from Piazza Santa Croce. The philosophy that inspires the choice of wines is to offer a careful selection of Tuscan and Italian labels, which well express the terroir of origin and are distinguished by a good value for money. The offer is enriched by special sections dedicated to organic wines, sparkling wines and French wines.
Via Sant'Antonino, 47r, ph. 055 2396850
Wine bar and shop founded by the brothers Gino and Silvano in 1944, 50 metres from the San Lorenzo Market, now run by their respective sons Mario and Simone, sommeliers and great wine lovers. The shelves lining the premises feature around 2,500 labels including wines, sparkling wines, liqueurs and spirits, as well as wines produced directly on their own estate, "Le Lame". The atmosphere is the lively and familiar one that can only be found in these places.
Borgo San Jacopo 17-39, ph 055 216849
A stone's throw from Ponte Vecchio, in Borgo San Jacopo under the medieval Marsili Tower. Here you can taste wines from Tuscany and other regions, extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany, traditional balsamic vinegar from Modena, and sample platters of typical cheeses and cold cuts as well as other food and wine specialities such as fresh truffles, typical creams and sauces, chocolate, spices, biscuits and cantucci and cakes. You will also find a wide range of Pulltex wine accessories.
Via della Torretta, 8 ph. +39 055 671404
It was an old warehouse near the Campo di Marte train station and everything has been left as it was. Although it is also known as a restaurant, it is actually the wine that dominates here, also to buy as in a normal wine shop. There are over 40,000 bottles available, so you are spoilt for choice. Interesting fact: an entire shelf is dedicated to 'private cellars', 100 euros a year, to preserve the bottles of your heart.
Dei Bardi 46/R 48r, ph. 055 286258
Set in a magnificent Florence with a view of Ponte Vecchio, Signorvino Firenze has almost 1500 labels, 1498 to be precise, all Made in Italy. The wines are divided by region. It is also possible to eat, with a good kitchen open all day.
