This wine bar feels like one of those mythical sitcom locals where you can always gets a seat, the bartenders are amiable and the drinks are good. Camouflaged amongst the houses on Bourke Street, this terrace bar is a long, skinny slice of Italian goodness. Although wine is most definitely the focus, they manage to save space for some Italian spirits – grappa, limoncello and amaro – and a shelf of Peronis.
The Italians know how to do drinking right. They're the inventors of the Campari Spritz, the Bicicletta, Fernet Branca, Diasaronno, and they produce some of the very best wines in the world. Luckily a pack of Sydney bars are taking a leaf directly from our continental friends and bringing great Italian drinks to Sydney at these Italian bars.
