VinoRosso -- an intimate Italian wine bar nested in the ever-so quaint neighborhood Bernal Heights -- knows vino buono! In our monthly wine tasting series, we open the best from Italy's small producers of almost every wine region, unearthing a sampling including rare varietals and limited cases. These events are just not for the aficionados, we encourage all to sit down and taste something new! Each class is presented by an Italian wine expert and includes at least 5 unique wines and antipasti. Please contact us if you have questions or have a group that would like to reserve! There are FAQs below too.

VinoRosso is a small, Italian wine bar. Chef/Owners Giuseppe Manna, from Rome, Italy and wife Vega Freeman-Brady, from Berkeley, California, have focused on a selection of more than 70 fine Italian and Californian wines, most of them available by the glass, rotating weekly – including Amarone, Brunello and Barbaresco. Our philosophy is to encourage people to try the many interesting, unique, indigenous wines of Italy, some of which are rarely poured by the glass elsewhere.
