Vino di Pino Amsterdam

The other day I wrote about different kinds of Ripasso wines that I had found throughout Amsterdam.

I had found one of the better Ripasso at Vino di Pino on Haarlemmermeerstraat near Hoofddorpplein. It was a Monteré Ripasso. Full bodied, balanced and very good overall. But not cheap at € 23,- per bottle. It worked out because Vino di Pino had a special 3 for 2 opening deal in December.

I saw that readers of dutchgrub were particularly interested in Vino di Pino. So I stopped by them again.

Turns out that there will be a similar sale throughout January. Vino di Pino is offering 50% off every second bottle for the entire month.

They are specializing in Italian wines and have a good selection of it. They know their wines and are happy to explain and make recommendations. I also like that they are open until 20:00 from Monday to Saturday – rather unusual for Amsterdam.

I got a bottle of La Guardiense Aglianico and a bottle of Primitivo by Tenuta Viglione that I cannot wait to try.

And Ton Overmars, the best store in Amsterdam for wine, whisky and other liquor is just across the street on Hoofddorpplein. Ton has a great selection of wines and whiskys, top quality and offers great value for your money!
