The (most elaborate?) wine window in Florence

I’ve posted before about the uniquely Florentine custom of  wine windows found in some of the city’s palazzi.  They are found, here and there, all around the city.  This is the most elaborate one I’ve ever noticed.

The marble plaque above informs customers that the window “It is open from November 1st to April from 10 am to 3 pm pm and in the evening from 5 to 9, from May 1st to the end of October From 10 am to 3 pm E La Sera From 7 to 10.”

The wine windows have their own association in Florence.  Here is the website: http://buchettedelvino.org
