Wine Merchant

As independent Wine Merchant our praxis is to source exceptional wines from small wineries, brave viticulturalists and rare grape varieties making them accessible to all our customers, also offering our products and services to selected off-trade and on-trade establishments.


As a traditional enoteca we serve wine by the glass and delicious food. Our menu is simple but packed with the finest ingredients from Italian and French artisan producers. With a friendly and convivial atmosphere Vinarius is the ideal place for wine tastings & supper clubs, aperitifs or for a light meal.
