One needs perhaps to do a little bit of extra promotion for this place – it is in the wrong direction. It is not really far from the city centre, though, only five minutes walk from Piazza Matteotti. You can’t miss it. It is in the immense and impressive Fortezza Medicea.
It is something like an all purpose wine promotion place: wine shop, wine bar, wine restaurant, wine school, wine museum… The purpose is exactly that: to be a showcase and promotion tool for Italian wine. We have only been to the wine bar and that was certainly well worth a visit. They have a very wide range of wines, much of it available by the glass.
There is also a terrasse where you can enjoy a warm summer evening. Perhaps a good place to start the evening early with a glass of Prosecco before finding a restaurant?
