Wine experiences on the go in the heart of Monterosso Paese Vecchio Old Village

  • You’ll taste the wines that made the legend of Cinque Terre vineyards, where the smell of the sea, rising up the steep cliffs, with vines clinging to their sides, mingles to the aroma of herbs growing wild and flowers scent.
  • In the very heart of Monterosso village you will learn all about the mysterious and hard way of making wines in the Cinque Terre and Colli di Luni area, today producers of excellent and top rate wines.
  • Our wine experts are ready to explain you the unique techniques used today to join tradition and innovation with the only aim to create a genuine, natural and exquisite wine.

L’Enoteca – The wine place

  • The enoteca site of the wine experience is the oldest wine store in the historic center of Monterosso. Carefully and passionately managed by the Barbieri family, the Enoteca Internazionale offers a vast assortment of local, Italian and international wines and liquors as well as a wide selection of extra virgin olive oils and other typical products of the Cinque Terre area.
  • Wine tasting provided by professional sommeliers for individuals and groups (reservation requested). Enoteca offers both indoor (up to 22 guests – now with limitations due to COVID restrictions) and outdoor seating (now with separation panels according to COVID-19 rules) where, year round, guests may try delicious bruschettas (those made with Monterosso anchovies are a must!), an excellent selection of cheese served with chutneys, magnificent salads and traditional desserts.
  • The Enoteca offers different formulas for tasting the very best of Ligurian Wines, giving particular stress to the local production of the two typical wines of Cinque Terre, a dry white wine, bearing the name Cinque Terre, and a white dessert wine made from dried grapes, called Sciacchetrà. Our wines bring to our tastes thousands years of hard labour and experience passed on generation after generation. Cinque Terre people fought against a hard soil to keep the land and make it fertile saving unique tastes and perfumes. To sip a glass of Cinque Terre wine means to pay a tribute to this fragile and beautiful land. Let’s see them all. Pick the one you like best!
