Vinoteca Centro Storico in Serralunga d'Alba
Here in the Langhe, there is nobody as passionate about bubbles, mainly champagne, as Alessio, owner of Vinoteca in Serralunga d'Alba. His wine bar, caffè, wine shop and restaurant sports the best list of bubbles in the area.
One may come here for sparkling wine, however you will stay for the great food and of course the Nebbiolo. His list of Barolos and Barbarescos is well thought out, along with an interesting selection of desert wines. Alessio is very knowledgable in the wines of Piemonte and is happy to explain the region's wines.
Alessio does all of this in a small but efficient space that is very comfortable, the walls are adorned with black and white photos and wine maps of the area. Menu is small and changes daily, we have always been happy with the choices and have eaten very well here at a good price.
Don't forget about aperitivo time, Alessio has a great selection of salumi and cheeses.
Reservations recommended as it is small and fills up fast.
