The concept of an Enoteca dates back to Roman times when it was simply a country wine bar where local wines could be drunk and purchased. Also available were small plates of regional food or fresh produce from the farm prepared in the Enoteca kitchen by the family or wife of the host, very often using old family recipes and methods. The wine always remained at centre stage however, and the food was there to make them shine.
