In Milan they were called ‘trani’: taverns where you could play cards and drink wine. Today they are the places for an aperitif with friends or to enjoy a glass at the end of the evening. Some wine bars in Milan serve wine on tap, an opportunity to taste even very rare bottles, often impossible to find.

To make sure you don’t miss this opportunity, here are some really unmissable places:

N’OMBRA DE VIN – VIA SAN MARCO, 2 (BRERA)

A fascinating and evocative place, created in a 16th-century refectory of Augustinian friars. An unmissable stop for those seeking a wide range of wines in the centre of Milan’s nightlife.

LA COLONIALE – CORSO GENOVA, 19 (ZONA PORTA GENOVA)

The place where the true “sciur” (man) of Milan drinks, arguing in dialect with his neighbour, a lifelong friend. Experiences and anecdotes of the old Milanese city will accompany your tasting of emblazoned labels or rare excellences.

VINOIR – RIPA DI PORTA TICINESE, 93/B (NAVIGLI)

The realm of natural wines. Here you will find exclusively artisanal wines, selected for quality and authenticity. From a small wine shop with a bookshop to the later bistro, the place has changed its appearance, but never its natural soul.

CANTINE ISOLA – VIA PAOLO SARPI, 30 (CHINA TOWN)

Informal, genuine and familiar ambience but with one of the best selections of labels in town. This place is a true Milanese institution, not to be missed.

BICERÌN – VIA PANFILO CASTALDI, 24 (PORTA VENEZIA)

Armchairs and sofas await you in a true Italian lounge. With more than 800 references, the Bicerìn will introduce you to small wineries, giving space to innovation and the search for emerging quality.

Not only are these, of course, places to try, but as true wine lovers, you cannot overlook them. Are you ready for your Milanese tour, one glass at a time?
