Steph's lovely shop and wine bar is a pleasant and comfortable place to be introduced to a variety of local wines that are reasonably price and sources from small producers. Steph is working toward her classification as a sommelier and will help you divine the flavors and the noise of each wine. Even if you don't have time to stop... More

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Stephanie today at Ottimi Vini. She recommended a fantastic syrah from Cortona. She is everything I like in a proprietor of a wine shop, enthusiastic, well informed, and with a passion for what she is doing and has a fantastic selection of wines from central Italy and the Fruili region. I look forward to returning.

Steph did an amazing job. As we were staying a little outside of Sansepolcro, would have meant some of the group would be driving and not possible to enjoy the tastings. So, instead Steph came to our villa, laden with 8 great wines for us to try and some great nibbles to accompany each one. Great knowledge of wine, and... More

As a group of friends we've travelled to the area before and were looking for a new experience to add to our ongoing love of Caprese Michelangelo... Stephanie was invited over to give us a wine tasting. With a passion for Tuscan wines, and only a passing knowledge of what's what I looked forward to our evening. Stephane brought a... More

*THE* place to go for great wine in Sansepolcro. Steph does a fantastic job shining the light on many of the smaller producers around Tuscany. We've learnt heaps from the wine tastings and recommendations.

We were so grateful for Steph's help and advice. Firstly, relying on her knowledge of local wines, and without breaking the bank, we tasted and selected cases of white, red and sparkling wine for our celebratory meal. Guests thoroughly enjoyed the wine and we are certainly looking forward to opening the few remaining bottles that we managed to send home.... More

I would thoroughly recommend Ottimi Vini or Stephs Wine Bar it is an excellent find just off the main street in Sansepolcro. We have been visiting this wine shop over the past couple of years. It is not just a shop, there are comfy sofas where you can sit and enjoy the many varied wines on offer. Also you can... More

What a gorgeous time we had a few weeks ago at this beautiful little hidden gem boutique wine shop. We were a little concerned before we went as we had 4 small children in tow all 6 and under. We figured we had a 50-50 chance of surviving it and getting at least some tasting done before abandoning ship due... More

Stephanie is the third generation of her family to be involved in the wine trade. Her grandfather and father both owned retail and wholesale wine businesses in the UK from 1959 onwards. Obviously Stephanie must have wine in her blood having opened Ottimi Vini in 2010. She has carried on the strong family tradition of sourcing, wherever possible, wines from small producers. This offers guaranteed quality, as well as benefitting the consumer due to the excellent price/quality ratio. Whilst enjoying a glass of wine in the bar Stephanie would be only too pleased to give you the story of how the Wine Bar got its name! English and Italian spoken
