Wine at AVVINO bar

Our Name

AVVINO comes from the wine term, "Avvinare.

The traditional European practice of priming stemware and decanters for proper wine service.

You pour a small sip of wine into your glass, swirl it, pour it into the glass of the person next to you, and repeat before finally discarding the sample. The glass you then serve has only the pure wine from the bottle, nothing altering its essential aroma or flavor.
