About Vintner's Table:

Owner’s Andrea and Marco Folino decided it was time to take their love for wine and bringing people together to a location known for it’s style, history, and culture. “On our honeymoon, Marco and I found a little hole in the wall in Lake Como that only served the best fresh sliced Italian cured meats and cheeses on a board with honey, nuts and olives and it was the best meal we had. We never forgot it and want to bring the same experience to Vintner’s Table”. Vintner’s Table is home to a Salumeria Bar, Gift Shop, and Tasting Bar where guests can enjoy light bites, shop unique Italian inspired items, and of course taste and purchase all wines from the Signature, Black Label, and Estate Grown collections. Located in the heart of downtown Phoenixville.
