This week started for me with an allergy induced head cold and a very sore throat. I also lost my voice for the first time in my life. I had to laugh – even though it hurt – when I saw this sign for a new shop in Ravello. Must admit that at the time it didn’t sound too bad! Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and fun weekend ahead!
ridere di gusto! Grazie mille!
It must have been tempting.
Ciao Mike! Believe me … it was. But without a voice all last week it would have been hard to actually order anything. 🙂 Buon fine settimana!

I was in Ravello 2 years ago and went into this shop and my wife took my picture outside the shop I now use it for my Facebook profile picture. The gentleman in the store is quite entertaining.We will be back in Ravello the end of May.Can’t wait!
Ciao Dan! I love hearing stories like this and seeing how photos bring back so many fun memories. I haven’t been in that shop, but now I’m curious. Glad you’ll be back on the Amalfi Coast so soon. Enjoy your travels!!
Hi Laura, I too saw that sign recently, it was funny, next time we will stop in! Hope you feel better soon. Patty
Thanks, Patty! I’m sure I’d seen it before as well, but maybe it took being sick to find the humor in it. 🙂 Feeling much better now … thanks! 🙂

Well, we made back to Ravello and had a great time.We visited the Wine and Drug store again and had some really good wine.We bought a case of wine to be shipped back here to the states and we could have sworn that the owner said shipping charges were included.Well,I guess that is a scam. I have read some advisories on line that these guys are a real rip off and something should be done about them because they give the other vendors in Ravello a bad name. They really take advantage of you by giving you lots to drink. I hope we don’t recieve a box of rocks. If we do ,I will send some of my Camorrah friends to tell them I said hi.
Other than that Ravello is a great little town.
Ciao Dan! Oh no … I’m so sorry to hear about your experience at this shop in Ravello. I hope your wine has arrived OK! Thank you for the heads up, since I hadn’t been in that shop before.
Well it appears Wine and Drugs is charging very high prices for shipping, it seems they have a reputation of charging very high shipping prices. Even when they tell the customer a different story.
If you take it with you like i did, you won’t have any trouble, But be wary as most of the wine there is available in the states, And at a much lower cost.
Dan, did you get your wine? I was there on my honeymoon and curious what it cost you to have shipped and if it arrived. I brought a bottle back with me but want to surprise my wife on our 1 year.
Hi Dean, If you’re searching for a wine from Sammarco like you mentioned in your message, I’d suggest getting in touch directly with Casa Vinicola Ettore Sammarco. Hopefully, they’ll be able to help with the shipping for your surprise. Good luck! Warm wishes, Laura
