The history of Roman bars

Bars in Rome, historically known as tabernae, were central to Roman life as early as ancient times. These venues evolved from simple wine houses to sophisticated establishments serving a range of beverages.

During the Renaissance, Rome's taverns were bustling centers of social life, often frequented by artists, writers, and intellectuals, a tradition of gathering over a drink that continues today.

Famous local wines

When visiting a wine bar, take the chance to savor some of the local wines of the region:

Frascati is a white wine that is known for its refreshing acidity and light, crisp taste. Made primarily from Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes, Frascati ranges from dry to slightly sweet and pairs beautifully with seafood, salads, and light pasta dishes.

Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone is a historic wine, also crafted from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes. It offers a pleasant mix of citrus and almond flavors and complements a variety of foods, from creamy pastas to soft cheeses.

Cesanese is unique to the Lazio region, a red wine made from the Cesanese grape and is cherished for its deep ruby color and aromatic blend of red berries and spices. Its rich, tannic nature makes it ideal for pairing with red meats, robust pasta dishes, and mature cheeses.

Cannellino di Frascati is derived from the same grapes as Frascati but harvested later for higher sugar content. This dessert wine is excellent for sipping alongside desserts like panna cotta.

Marino is similar to Frascati but with a more pronounced mineral edge. Marino is a delightful accompaniment to fish and poultry.
