Ideology? At Enoteca Sociale we believe that wine & food are best enjoyed together at the table with family & friends.
The Enoteca, meaning Wine Library, began as tasting rooms for regional or local wines. Often sponsored by the state and in cooperation with local wine makers, visitors to the region could taste wines from smaller producers without having to visit the wineries. Over time Enoteche began offering food and grew into full service restaurants and are often termed “wine bars”.
A Cantina Sociale is a wine making facility in Italy shared by the neighbourhood and used to produce wine for the community.
Enoteca Sociale combines elements of both these concepts to create a social neighbourhood wine bar. Guests can taste wines from all over Italy and Ontario while enjoying a meal inspired by classic Roman cuisine. Our wine cellar features not only a view into our cantina but a harvest table that friends and family can enjoy.
