Vinodromo literally stands for “racetrack for wines”, since vino is wine and dromo comes from ancient Greek and means racetrack (see hippodrome). Now, of course this doesn’t really make sense, but life doesn’t always make sense either, with wine even more so. Or maybe the opposite is true, I don’t know, we could argue for ages, about it, couldn’t we?
Vinodromo has been my “wine grandfather” if this means anything at all. I’m just an amateur and I don’t know if I’ll ever be more than that, yet amateur in French, as well as an Italian (dilettante), means “she who loves/enjoys it” and this is what good wine will always be about; Vinodromo taught me how to enjoy good wine.
These guys are not amateur though, they know a whole lot about wine, and possibly love it even more. Many events are organized throughout the week both for wine tasting and food tasting. Wines are mainly natural or organic, as they support high quality and traditional methods, being real wines nerds. If you happen to be spending some days in Milan and you want to try out truly Italian wines, then this is the right spot. I’ve attended many of these events and I advise you to give it a try.
Their website and FB page is kept well up to date, in case you want to see what they are up to.
