I was unsure if I should tell you about this hidden treasure in the small streets of Born, because it comes with the risk of finding it full from now on. But it deserves to be mentioned, so let me introduce to you: “El Soplo”
As soon as we entered this little wine bodega, we were welcomed by the broad smile of the two Italian owners. As if we entered a friend’s house, we were urged to a seat. Once the decision between red or white had been made, we were enlightened about their choice of wine. With a spark in their eyes they started explaining the wines they have in their collection and the background of the region those were from, the different flavours we would discover and what would probably fit our taste. All of the wines have in common that they are ecological and selected with love and passion.
A far cry from all the hipster ‘organic’ places that are popping up in town, El Soplo is a no-nonsense place with a great selection of wine for a good price. Nothing posh, no ambiance of ‘wine connoisseurs’, just 2 down to earth Italians with a passion for their product.
Charmed by the enthusiasm they welcomed and served us with, the guys really made us feel at home. We instantly knew we’d be coming back, for friendly service is a rare thing in this town. So wonder off and find this bar; for you will leave it with a smile!
