Enoteca La Storia is the culmination of a shared cultural heritage, mutual family traditions, and a joint commitment to create an inviting environment for people to enjoy tasty wine, delicious food and lively conversation or shop for a bottle to take home. As two wine professionals of 100% Italian-American ancestry, both with a family history in the wine and food business, it was only natural that, when it came time to open our own place, we would be drawn to the concept of an Enoteca. It’s the best way to express and honor our heritage, values and philosophy.
Enoteca La Storia has a strong focus on local and domestic wines but also features international wines from places like Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the Southern Hemisphere. You can enjoy some of your favorite wines or, if you’re feeling adventurous, sample something different and discover a new favorite! Enoteca La Storia - a casual place to be serious about wine…Salute!
What is an Enoteca?
In formal terms, Enoteca (“Ehn-o-tek-a”) is an Italian word, derived from Greek, which literally means "wine repository” (from Oeno/Eno - "wine" and Teca - "receptacle, case, box"). It is used to describe a special type of local or regional wine shop that originated in Italy. A traditional Enoteca is primarily focused on giving visitors the opportunity to taste wines for a reasonable fee and providing the option to purchase them. Historically, they have often been run in collaboration with growers or tourism organizations in the town or region in which they are located.
