MELBOURNE | Vinorium is the newest wine bar to hit the increasingly vibrant Northcote end of High Street, and is doing things a bit different than the usual wine bar. It’s been opened by Fabbio Navarolli and Martina Kostov from the old Tuscan Bar in the CBD, who wanted to move to a part of business that was better suited to their vision. The City Lane was invited to the launch event and, being big fans of the Tuscan Bar, and of Northcote’s bar scene, were keen to see what this vision was all about.

Basically, it’s about finding the best wines from Australia and around the world at an accessible price point, offering them to drink at the venue or take away, as well as offering a menu filled with classic and modern Italian dishes. A simple concept, but not one that was capable to being implemented at the Tuscan Bar site. Wine educator Anthony Nania has come across from the Tuscan Bar, and has set up the venue’s wine offering. When I spoke to Anthony, he told me that he wanted to ensure that there are wines on offer at every price point, and that each wine offers great value for money no matter what level it’s at. Anthony tastes each wine himself before committing to including it in Vinorium’s range to ensure that there “are no duds”.

I make no claims to be a wine expert, but I can safely say that I enjoyed every wine I tried during the night, and was even convinced to buy a bottle (OK maybe it was two) of SL Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Riserva 2007. For those who don’t want to buy an entire bottle, there are several wines spanning a variety of styles on offer by the glass, and on Friday and Saturday afternoons, some of the more interesting wines offered can be sampled at Vinorium’s tasting bar.

As well as wine, Vinorium offer selection of spirits and beers, including some interesting craft beers in the back fridges. There weren’t any beer taps when I visited, however I was told by Fabbio that he’s in the process of deciding which beers to include on the six tap system that will be installed in coming weeks.

Food wise it’s things like polenta chips, arancini, pizza, salt and pepper calamari, tiramisu, and vanilla bean panna cotta. The pizzas are on point, with a beautifully charred crust, thin base and tasty toppings, while the polenta chips, and panna cotta with fairy floss are two other must order items.

Vinorium also offer wine masterclasses, which are run by Anthony and range from things like French and Italian wine appreciation classes, and food and wine matching classes, to multi-week wine courses for those looking to get some real in depth knowledge.

The full food menu and bottled wine is also available for takeaway to nearby residences. A great addition to the area.
