Ok, world. The American election season is finally winding down.
I have no words.
But I do think it it safe to say that we could all use a drink. (What I mean is: I could use all the drinks).
There is a dearth of good wine in Trastevere.
Right now, we are treated to the weekly opening of a new cocktail bar on every corner (some of which I really like), but I miss wine. Good, Italian wine.
The natural wine shop moved from its previous suburban location to Trastevere earlier this year.
Floor to ceiling shelve showcase a range of natural Italian wines – most of which I have honestly never heard of.
Owners Antonio and Marisa are there to demystify your experience and make suggestions on which bottles to take home.
I’m not going to lie – I wish that I could pop open a bottle and hang out for awhile, but this is a strictly shopping experience.
The small enoteca sits just beyond Piazza San Cosimato, and is the perfect stop to pick up a bottle to pair with your recent market purchase from mercato San Cosimato.
Les Vignerons also have an impressive selection of hard-to-find craft beers in two cold cases by the cash register.
Stop by, browse, take a bottle home and enjoy thoroughly.
