Fine Wine in Rome

Half bar, half restaurant: wine bars are a relatively new phenomenon in Rome. Guests often stop by after work to enjoy a glass or two, and when they get hungry, they order tasty delicacies to nibble on. Wine bars usually don’t offer full-course meals but the wine is served by sommeliers and more and Romans are opting to spend a pleasant evening in the Eternal City enjoying the lively atmosphere of a wine bar. We take a small tour of what Rome has to offer.

The wine menu at Roscioli is just as daunting as the wall of precious bottles with elaborate labels. If it weren’t for Mauro, the waiter and sommelier, you’d be completely overwhelmed. But he asks you your preference with a friendly, disarming smile and knows exactly what to recommend. All the great wines are available here, from Sassicaia to Brunello di Montalcino.
