Tenuta Casali

The Casali family's organically farmed (in conversion) vines lie on the north side of the Appennines south-east of Bologna. This wine, named after its vineyard, is from Sangiovese grown on white clay affected soils and, given six months in large, old Slavonian oak vats. It's authentically Italian in its wild rusticity.

I have used Stone, Vine & Sun for a number of years now and have found their advice in seeking wines to my taste most helpful. They have often found some small vineyards that need assistance and have provided excellent wines. I will always look to support my local services where possible, for if we do not they will cease to exist leaving faceless conglomerates. They are always a happy organisation to interact with and their local delivery service works very well.

Great service and fantastic products. We have never had a bad bottle with any of our orders, and I can guarantee your friends will not have the same producers/vintages available at Stone, Vine, & Sun.

As always SVS delivered my recent order next working day with no errors. My only problem with them as a wine merchant is that they regularly send me more mouth watering offers than my budget or my cellar can cope with. My kind of merchant. So many great finds, many from less fashionable (read expensive) regions, but always carefully selected, good value and good of their kind.

Many classic wines plus lots examples from independents practicing natural methods including a good selection from South Africa. The price spectrum includes many delicious wines under £10. An informative website makes ordering simple with rapid delivery. This year I confidently dipped my toe into en Primeur from Burgundy based on advice. They have won many awards and I expect SVS to win many more. Brian from Kent.

This is my all time favourite wine merchant. Innovative in approach, with a wonderful selection of new and old world wines. By far the best delivery service too, even in these straitened times!

SVS continues to provide an excellent selection of wine from many countries, a vast selection of varieties, and all at a reasonable cost. I have been a customer for over 17 years and I have always enjoyed any wine which I have purchased.
