PR Scotland that’s simply Divin-o in one of Scotland’s popular weekend supplments.
The Herald Magazine which runs every Saturday, features a weekly column from top wine writer Tom Bruce Gardyne, who gives the lowdown on the latest wine news and trends.
Speaking out against venues that provide a bland offering of Pinot Grigio and not much else, he hails Divino Enoteca, Edinburgh’s newest Italian wine bar as a “glamorous showcase for Italian wine”
Divino Enoteca offers one of Scotland’s most extensive selection of fine and rare Italian wines and is the only venue in Scotland to use Enomatic wine dispensing technology to preserve the flavour and body ensuring the perfect serve everytime.
Whilst the venue doesn’t completely shun Pinot Grigio, there is only one available and its not cheap, it does choose to focus on top quality vintages, designed to broaden the tastes and horizons of wine lovers across the capital.
Tony Crolla owner of the venue and leading Italian restauratuer quotes in the article: “The problem with Pinot Grigio is that although it is very popular, most bottles are very bland and don’t offer much in the way of fulfillment.”
And whilst Divino Enoteca does offer some 250 wines by the glass – it does seem for now that Pinot Grigio still remains their biggest seller.
Divino Enoteca is located on Merchant Street just off Candlemaker Row in the city’s Old Town and more information about their wine and antipasti offering can be found on their website.
