Felice - the story of Felice

The Story of FELICE

In 2007, Jacopo Giustiniani opened the first Felice on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, creating a unique space for New Yorkers inspired by the spirit of the Italian countryside and the wines of his family’s vineyard. Set in an inviting and cozy atmosphere, Felice offers an extensive, Italian-driven wine list alongside a rustic menu of authentic Tuscan dishes. Today, there are several locations found across New York City, Brooklyn, Roslyn, and Florida.

Felice - Vineyard

The vineyard

Our extensive wine program is inspired by our three elegant wines—Felice Chardonnay, Sangiovese, and Rosato—which are produced with great care by the organic vineyard, Fattoria Sardi.

Located in the countryside of northwest Tuscany, Fattoria Sardi is nestled between the Apuane Mountains, Appennino Mountains, and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Now owned and operated by a local family, the winery was founded over two hundred years ago by the Counts of Sardi, making it an historic estate in the region. The land is managed with a profound respect for the rhythms of nature, always looking to maintain a natural harmony and balance. Fattoria Sardi’s wine production complies with the European standards for organic and biodynamic agriculture to ensure the finest wines and preservation of the land for generations to come.
