“When I sip and savour the local wine, I cannot help but think of the effort of the men and women who over the centuries have made it a reality, of the beauty of the landscape surrounding the vineyards, and of the struggle to protect this precious and fragile ecosystem.”
Fabio Graziani, Owner
It has been said that the Cinque Terre winemaker “is a sort of modern and everyday hero, who, by continuously restoring the dry-stone walls, draws a living from the vineyard giving life to the territory”.
We have therefore created a wine list which we believe brings together our area’s – Levanto, Cinque Terre and the Val di Vara – best producers.
From the Cinque Terre you will find the wines of Walter De Battè, Bartolo “Cheo” Lercari and his wife Lise, Luciano Cappellini, Rosy and Sebastian of the Azienda Agricola Vetua.
From the Levanto Valley we prefer the “passiti” – sweet dessert wines – from both white and red grapes, which compete with honour with the Cinque Terre’s more famous “sciacchetrà”.
From the Val di Vara come the wines of the Azienda Prima Terra, again produced by Walter De Battè, and those of Ivano Denevi and Gianluigi Careddu.
The wine list is offered both by the bottle and by the glass. Our Sommelier will suggest the best wines for the menu of the day through which one can fully appreciate the most authentic flavours of this tiny part of the world.
