Not all wine in Rome is equal. And the same goes for wine bars. There are many a place where you can stop and drink a drop, but the quality and variety varies from place to place. While Rome and surrounding areas might not be as popular internationally as Tuscany or Piedmont for its wine production, it does produce some DOCG (Italian and internationally certified) wines from Cesanese to Frascati. You can drink wine just about anywhere in Rome from small bars to an enoteca (the traditional and original Itaian wine bar concept) to your roman trattoria - where, if you don't ask for the wine list, quite often you'll be served the house wine. In some places, this can be quite decent, but if it's genuine quality you're after, heading to one of the city's wine bars is more likely to suit your taste. In the centro storico head to the renowned Roscioli or the cosy Divin Ostilia. In Trastevere, Spirito diVino is a certified Slow Food restaurant with a wine cellar that pre-dates the Colosseum and Vin Allegro is a neighborhood hotspot for a casual wine affair. For natural and bio-dynamic wines, try Litro in the up and coming foodie neighborhood Monteverde. Whatever your taste in wine is, this list has something to suit. Cin Cin!
