Top Rome restaurants for Wine Lovers as Chosen By Decanter

Top spots to eat and drink like the locals in Italy’s capital


We were delighted to read this article in September’s issue of Decanter, it’s a great list and you are able to try our Biodynamic Wines in three of the top bars listed, Enoteca Trimani, Rimessa Roscioli and Armando al Pantheon

Enoteca Trimani

Enoteca Trimani

Enoteca Trimani

The Trimani family runs Rome’s oldest wine shop with more than 6,000 labels, including many artisan and natural – and also produces wine from its own estate in Lazio. The multi-generational business began in 1821 and moved to its present location on the corner of Via Goito in 1876. Next door, in what was Rome’s first wine bar, Carla Trimani cooks delicious local dishes and serves artisan salumi and cheeses to accompany the exciting wine list.


Roscioli Rome

Roscioli Rome

Roscioli started as a modest bakery in the heart of the city and has grown into one of Rome’s top food resources for bread, pizza, food and wine. It’s still a thrill to enter the main shop in Via dei Giubbonari, lined with fabulous salumi and cheeses, and work one’s way to the back where there are tables for lunch and dinner with great wines by the glass too: book ahead!

Armando al Pantheon

Armando al Pantheon

Armando al Pantheon

If you’re after really traditional Roman fare – from tripe to stuffed artichokes, amatriciana pasta and lamb’s intestines – you need look no further than this classic trattoria. It’s a Roman favourite, bang in the centre of town. The wine list is interesting too, thanks to the owner’s daughter, Fabiana Gargioli, who manages it.

Rediscovering Lazio Wines Naturally

10 Wine Producers, 10 Wines, 375 glasses


Lazio, a region that was once the jewel in viticulture has been reawakened by a new generation of biodynamic winemakers. 


Palazzo Tronconi Eco Winery was the backdrop to an evening dedicated to 10 Biodynamic wine producers from the Lazio region. The evening was hosted by one of Italy's most knowledgeable and passionate sommelier's, Sandro Sangiorgi he was assisted by Matteo Gallello, a biodynamic winemaking advocate.

Valuing their territory and the importance of their indigenous grape varieties these winemakers have teamed together to promote their shared vision, to produce a unique style of wines naturally that are focused on quality and that characterise this region.

Like many Italian wine regions, Lazio's wine heritage is ancient. It is a region composed of hills, and mountains and is uniquely suited to viticulture because of its mild climate, a rich and varied geological mix of soils of which volcanic soils are prominent, coastal breezes, adequate rainfall, variations in day-night temperatures and an abundance of rare, high-quality native grape varieties.

Soon these winemakers will find themselves on the radar, the world of wine is beginning to sit up and notice as they are on the brink of rediscovering the true potential of these wines and this territory.

Thanks to the following producers:

 Andrea Occipinti, Cantina Ribela, Carlo Noro, Damiano Ciolli, La Visciola, Palazzo Tronconi, Podere Orto, Riccardi Reale, DS Bio, Casale Certosa iCacciagalli

Also Thanks to Sandro Sangiiorgi and all the staff at Palazzo Tronconi who gave up their time to take part in this exciting event, Ettore Conti, Sarah Hoehn and Maria Teresa Cocco
