Hidden a few steps away from the famous Ponte Vecchio in the heart of Bassano del Grappa, this picturesque wine bar is a real must in the area thanks to its authentic atmosphere and a wine list of over 400 labels.
Mariga has, in fact, become a hideaway for serious wine lovers as well as a popular hot spot for a drink with friends, perfectly orchestrated by the owners, the lovely Giancarlo and Rosy.
Located in a narrow street in the historic center, Mariga looks like an intimate wine cellar characterized by wooden shelves full of bottles and a huge convivial table, placed in the middle of the room, that really encourages people to get to know each other. Curious objects, funny street signs donated by customers, memorabilia, and photos of friends complete the décor in a very spontaneous way, presenting new additions every day.
The venue offers a truly enviable choice of labels and around 40/45 wines by the glass available every day to be paired with cutting boards of cured meat or delicious canapes prepared with local products.
Indeed the perfect place just to relax and get pleasantly lost among the many artists, entrepreneurs, and creatives that live in this beautiful area.
On the right side of the counter and behind it, two curious works of art have been placed; a plate with a painted eye and a portrait of a lady with a nineteenth-century flavor. Both are part of the production of a local artist who asked the wine bar’s owners to permanently displayed them on the walls of the wine shop.
