Cantina Sociale

Cantina Sociale is an idea developed from our endless love of drinking great wine with great friends. Our focus has always been about ‘what’s in the glass’ rather than focussing on particular producers, packaging or how many points it was awarded. From here stemmed a concept – what if we created a place where friends could gather to drink great quality wine, nibble a snack & solve the world’s problems?!
