on behalf of Divino Enoteca
Edinburgh’s premium Italian wine bar uncorks bottles full of PR Scotland with a review in Sunday national newspaper.
The Sunday Herald’s food and drink writer visited the venue in the capital’s Old Town sampling the fine wine and traditional Italian cusine it has to offer.
Describing the venue Joanna Blythman writes: “Its as if you had been dropped into Italy. The establishment might look like a well kept secret but it is evident that its grown up sophisticated charms are evident to many.”
Modelled on the traditional enoteche found in rural Italy, Divino Enoteca offers wine lovers in the capital a chnace to sample some of Italy’s fine and rare wines by the glass without having to pay a fortune for the bottle. Wines on the menu are extremely local and simply produced and this is reflected in their food offering which is predominately artisan featuring high quality Italian D.O.P produce.
The first venue in Scotland to use Enomatic dispensing technology to preserve the flavour and body of the wine, customers can relax knowing they will get the perfect serve every time.
The highlight of the menu for Joanna was the authentic tiramisu which she describes in the article as: “Divino takes the tasting principle to a further extreme with their authentic Tiramisu. No sneaking whipped cream into the mix, just a time honoured emulsion of whipped eggs and sweetened marscapone cheese, swaddling Savoiardi biscuits soaked in espresso and amaretto liquer. Done the right way its a lovely dessert. You’ll have to try it.”
Overall Divino Enoteca was rewarded an impressive 8.5 out of 10 for its fine wine selection and traditional and authentic quality Italian food.
