Description: Vinosofia is a concept enoteca naturale. A fine wine boutique, wine bar and gourmet food products.The enoteca consists of over 100 labels of mostly organic, European, hand picked wines from small producers. We have a growing selection of fine gourmet foods. At our intimate wine bar we offer distinctive wines by the glass, local artisan beers, organic Italian soda's and serve organic espresso and tea. We serve small plates of gourmet bruschetta, artisan cheese & salumi, extra virgin olive oil tasting, as well as some seasonal specials. We are looking to continually expand our philosophy that wine is more than just a liquid, it's a lifestyle.

Reviewed August 5, 2013

Brenda (speaks English!) proved that the art of wine is an masterpiece in Italy! We don't get a lot of great Italian wines in Canada and I can't say enough about her knowledge of the more than 500 virietals and her knowledge of the small vineyards that make the industry strong. We had lovely pre-dinner drinks there more than once and even brought the kids (she has a toy corner!). We went home each time with a bottle or two and brought them with us to Rome - they were that good, we were afraid we wouldn't find anything quite so lovely. She had knowledge of the area restaurants and their wine lists too so we always ordered a great bottle on her recommendation. I will miss Brenda's advice on the rest of our tour of Italy.

“Stylish enoteca”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Great experience at Vinosofia. Lovely people and a very styish restaurant! The food was very nice as were the wines served. To bad they do not have a patio or outside seats.

“An oasis of cool chic with beautiful wine.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Discovered on a hot day in Spello. Venture down the stairs into a beautifully restored bar serving simple antipasti and wine which the owner will recommend on request. Well worth pulling up a high stool and trying some quality Italian wines.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

I'll begin by saying that I desperately wish I had a place like Vinosofia in my hometown--I'd probably be there every night. The space is beautifully decorated, and there's a really excellent selection of wines and perfectly paired antipasti to go with them. The best part of the experience, though, is the charming and attentive owners. They are really interesting people, and their knowledge and passion about what they are serving you is palpable. We experienced an attention to detail at Vinosofia that one rarely experiences, and it was lovely. Vinosofia offers a really delightful way to spend an evening, or just pop in for a pre-dinner drink, or to buy a bottle of wine just right for any occasion. It's a special place. Go!
