Based upon the original Bottega Del Vino, established in 1890 in Verona, Italy, the NYC restaurant is a wine lover’s dream. Brought to the U.S. by one of the most illustrious personalities in the world of wine — Severino Barzan — Bottega Del Vino is an oenophiles paradise.
Celebrated as the largest wine cellar in New York City, the cellar features a selection of over 2000 international wines chosen by Barzan, the Revue du Vin de France’s 1998 “Man of the Year” and the winner of 2004’s “Wine Spectator Award.” The restaurant’s wine cellar features such standouts as the priceless Medeira 1900 D’Oliviera’s Reserva and the $5,000 Alzero Qunterelli.
Crystal stemware, created personally by Barzan, complements the superb wine collection. Bottega Del Vino® Crystal is hand blown, lead free and finished to the highest world standards for balance, weight, and shape. Designed to elevate the wine drinker’s experience, the extraordinary quality preserves the integrity of the wine that it was designed to hold.
