Enoteca Falorni is the largest enoteca in Tuscany featuring over 1,000 selected wines with more than 100 wines available for tasting, using the innovative enomatic(R) system.

The Enoteca is located underground in the historical centre of Greve in Chianti on the site of the first large wine cellar founded by noble land owners of the area (considered the authentic fore bearers of the Chianti Classico consortium).

The historical structure has ample spaces with arched brick ceilings, corridors and smaller rooms (originally used as grape storage areas) and tells the story of its long history as a wine cellar that for years represented the economic heart of Greve in Chianti, boasting a line of illustrious owners. Constructed in 1893 by Ernesto Leproni, the location was used as cellars by the Union of Chianti Classico producers in 1906 and subsequently purchased in 1913 by Count Emanuele Mirafiori d'Alba, until being sold to the Gancia di Canelli brothers in 1932. In the 1960's and 1970's the site belonged to the Italo-American dei Paterno family and was left in an abandoned state in 1975. In 1999 the premises were purchased by the Bencista Falorni family and were transformed into the present day Enoteca Falorni, with the aim to promote and give valour to Chianti Classico wines. Its elegance and the presence of more than 1,000 principally Tuscan wines with others from further Italian regions as well as sparkling wines, dessert wines, grappa and olive oil render the Enoteca Falorni an authentic "temple to wine".

Positive: Nice atmosphere due to the interior design and jazz music playing in the background. Lots of wines to taste. We got very good recommendations at every station of wines fitting our budget (20-25 EUR per bottle). We left with 6 very nice bottles. Negative: We had to ask for the recommendations ourselves, staff did not come to us. It's... More

Brilliant visit, phenomenal wines, if a little pricey some of them, but having it all in one place is just a splash of delight!

We visited Enoteca Falorni as we were part of a hen party and the bride wanted to go wine tasting. I think just knowing that she didn't like Italian wines before the tasting, and she left having ordered a few bottles of wine, shows that the Enoteca helped her change her mind! Giancarlo was especially attentive, acting as our sommelier... More

Huge selection and you use a card and do it yourself with machines so you can take your time and try what you want. Prices anywhere from 1E to 4E just for a tiny taste- but you get to try many more than you would in any other wine bar/ vineyard we've seen. If the price is too much you... More

We spent an afternoon testing a multitude of Italian wines while nibbling on a local meats. Setting is stunning and the self serve set up lends itself to relaxing as you work your way through the room.

We visited last week and generally had a very good experience. Sampled lots of wines and had a lovely lunch. We bought two bottles of Crociani Montepulciano 2012 Riserva at 28 Euro each.

Self-service wine tasting is the future! You either buy a pre-paid card or put your credit card down and Pay As You Go to use machines filled with bottles of wine. There are 11 stations, each of a different style, from which you can sample 5-10 different types of wine. Stick the card in and choose either a small taste... More
