At Vini Italiani we offer a wide range of services including amateur courses, tastings, food parings, encounters with producers, corporate events and more.
Monthly Sommelier Selection Wine Club
For the most discerning Italian wine lovers, Vini Italiani has curated a monthly selection of the most interesting gems from our collection. Choose between Gold (£149), Silver (£99) and Bronze (£69), and set up a direct debit to take away all the fuss. Sit back and relax, as we dip into our vast collection of Italian wines to find seasonal picks that will delight your palate. Each wine is accompanied by tasting notes & food pairing suggestions. We will match at least 20% off the retail price, and wines come in cases of 6.
Try before you buy with our Enomatic
We are proud to host two amazing Enomatic tasting machines in our Old Brompton store. These masterpieces of engineering (also Italian) allow you to draw samples of wines without damaging the wine left in the bottle as nitrogen is pumped in the bottle every time tasting doses is taken out. Get your personalised top-up card and load up credits (minimum £5) and start sampling. Starting price for sampling is just over £1! We also have guest fine wines in the Enomatic so that you can taste expensive labels.
Free Sommelier Advice
Our sommeliers, lead by our store manager Ance, are at hand to advise you whatever your requirements may be. From choosing the best sequence of wines for an important dinner to picking the most interesting new wines from emerging wine-making regions of Italy, they are always happy to share their knowledge with our customers. Just pop in the store and ask your questions: you will be surprised!
