Born in 1859, Bottiglieria Moscatelli is one of the oldest wineries in Milan, a real piece of history, the right place to taste a good glass of wine, always DOGether with your furry friends.

The recent renovation has not “killed the bishop” by preserving the old style with no special effects, recycling wooden made tables, unpaired chairs, old posters and proudly exhibiting some vintage and precious bottles which are coming from a different “world”. Moscatelli is a sort of  “survivor”  in the city of lounge bars, design venues, etnic restaurants and trendy spots, a tribute to tradition and to what we used to call “milanesità” (milanese style) for those who want to “smell” the old days of our grandfathers. No Web site, no Facebook, no Twitter … just a wide word of “mouth” for this winning example of personality (“fashion fades…only style remains” quoting Coco Chanel)

Taste and passion are the key elements of this long life business, as well as the the ability to innovate. Moscatelli has been introducing new formats to keep “up to date” like the aperitivo, a ritual starting every day at 7pm  with a good selection of wines, for a very reasonable price including a buffet with pasta, focaccia, bruschetta, ham and cheese, veggies and some special “catch of the day”.

The interiors are warm and cozy but the space is actually quite limited, then it’s not the best condition to accomodate your 4 legged friends. The best way ever to enjoy this “no frill” atmosphere is sitting outside in the summer dehor along the Corso Garibaldi pedestrian, a different “anthropological” way to discover the city and observe the “locals in action”.

Located a few steps away from Parco Sempione, the enchanting Brera, the lively Corso Como and the new Porta Nuova, Moscatelli will turn out to be a “vinous addiction” you cannot do without, but do not worry: “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it” word of Dogfather (quoting Oscar Wilde). Give it a go !
