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.
There are some lovely, fierce and smart women working in wine in Rome. From Sarah, to Gina, to Katie and Hande, they will all tell you to go to one place to find the best wine in the city:
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.
