Want to help bring a taste of Italy to the UK?

Established in Treviso in 2005, and franchising since 2008, Vinoteca is a chain of wine cafes that advocates the Italian culture of drinking and nibbling whilst socialising in relaxed surroundings. Whether it be lunch, evening or after work socialising, Vinoteca customers can enjoy selected Italian wine, from tap or bottle, paired alongside quality cold cuts and cheeses.

As well as being able to relax and enjoy the wine in a Vinoteca cafe, customers can alternatively buy by bottle or in bulk to take away, at a reasonable price, and if they enjoy the wine then they can bring back the bottle for a refill.

Vinoteca cafes are best placed in a city centre or shopping area with pedestrian zone, main streets to city centre.

With already 29 cafes across Italy, Vinoteca is now looking to bring their wine cafe franchise to the UK.
