A Warm and Versatile Sanctuary

The wine bar on the ground floor is a versatile haven, suitable for gatherings, events, small concerts, and wine tastings. In the winter, it offers a cozy refuge, while in the summer, it becomes a refreshing retreat, sheltered by the towering Orobian Alps (7,218 feet/2,200 meters).

A Convivial Gathering Space

The central reclaimed wood table serves as the social focal point, surrounded by an array of distinctive furnishings that invite guests to relax and savor a glass of wine. Plush armchairs, a leather sofa, wood and metal stools, a black piano, and colorful chairs all contribute to the homely ambiance, fostering an environment of comfort and enjoyment.

Honoring the Past, Embracing the Future
