Managed by a group of young sommeliers who are passionate about natural wine, this is a great place to grab a drink in a casual setting. The added benefit: the building belongs to the Casa Emergency charity association to which part of the profits are donated.

Milan is a cocktail of culinary aromas: the smell of citrus fruit at the produce stand, that of warm brioche with an enticing scent in a woman’s hands or that of basil leaves sautéed in olive oil… Amidst these wonderful smells, you will find our store, where authenticity reigns supreme – and where the air smells slightly of freshly made espresso. If you’re in Milan, stop by our store and share a cup with us!”
