About & Whereabouts

Rebecca Christophersen Gouttenoire and her husband Pierre Gouttenoire are wine professionals who select the Italian wines for Tuscany in a Bottle, the Wine Club and Italian Wine Mystery Box

Ciao! I'm Rebecca Christophersen Gouttenoire, an avid wine lover, and together with my husband Pierre who's a French winemaker, we run this small wine shop featuring some of our favorite wines and wineries. If you have been on a wine tour with us, Grape Tours, some of the bottles might be familiar - others will be a discovery.

We love to seek out small wineries that make unique and delicious wines. It's always exciting to taste a new wine or an unknown grape variety. Some wines taste like a thousand bucks, yet are super affordable. That's the kind of wines we search out the most.

We also feel it's important that the wines reflect the place they come from, and if the vintner works in an ethical or organic way, it's a total plus for us.

So in our vision, it's a win-win if we can provide our peeps with healthy wines, and at the same time help a small vintner continue his or her passionate work out in the fields.

For our Italian wine club we hope to expand your palate by sending you exciting and meaningful bottles that we carefully select from small wineries around the Peninsula. It is, in fact, our wine club members themselves that keep us inspired to explore!

Help us, help the vintners, help you drink better wines!

Join our Italian wine fun!
