Do not let the pretty looks of Kolonāde deceive you into thinking that this is just another touristy café in the heart of Riga. Yes - you couldn’t possibly dream of a better location overlooking National Opera House and right next to the Monument of Freedom. However, Kolonade’s secret lies in its modern European cuisine managed by chef Ainars Volodka and its refined wine list curated by a sommelier team headed by Aigars Ozoliņš. You can enjoy seriously good bottles here from both New and Old World, however, the passion of Kolonāde lies in Italy. From North to South, from Piedmont to Campania, from Super-Tuscans to native Italian grapes and terroirs, from young to mature - this list is full of gems waiting to be enjoyed.
Our choice: A duo of mature beauties - 2010 Anna Maria Abbona Cado Langhe Rosso (€38), and 2007 Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello Di Montalcino (€65). Cheers!
