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

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.

Beekeeping in Italy

Life is Bee-utiful at Palazzo Tronconi, Italy

Conserving our Flora and Fauna

Bees are essential to our eco system. They are responsible for almost a third of the food we eat. Their ecological and morphological characteristics make them valuable in the preservation of our environment. So, as a biodynamic winemaker obsessed with ecology and natural science when the beehives were introduced to Palazzo Tronconi on the 10th May 2017 we were all buzzing with excitement.

Not only are we playing a small part in conserving our flora and fauna, we hope to produce  natural honey. We also intend to use the propolis that is produced in the hives for pharmaceutical purposes. The vineyards will also benefit as gradually we hope to abandon the use of copper and use a treatment of propolis instead.


For centuries beekeepers assumed that bees sealed the beehive with propolis to protect the colony from the elements, such as rain and winds. Only recently research has shown that bees not only survive, but also thrive, with increased ventilation during the winter. In fact propolis adds much more beneficial purpose to the hive, including prevention of diseases and parasites from entering the hive, also stopping fungal and bacterial growth. It has also been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years.

Our honey is almost ready, and after tasting natural acacia honey for the first time, I cannot wait….
