Art & wine in one of Nerja´s most popular win bars
From our correspondent in the Nerja region Maria Pawlus
VINOleto Wine bar is one of the best-known bars of that type in Nerja. Located near Plaza Tutti Frutti it is easy to find and yet it escapes all the noise and rush of the area. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere supported by enjoyable music and friendly service. The place is decorated with various original art pieces available for sale; perfect for those looking for alternative ideas for souvenirs.
It also has outside seating, ideal for chilled evening of people watching while enjoying nice glass of vino. The owner, Carmen González has been running VINOleto for 15 years and for almost just as long I have been VINOleto’s customer! I was never disappointed. Lovely wines, each glass accompanied with light tapas. There are few local wines available;
Red wine from Ronda (Denominacion de Origen Sierras De Malaga) – ‘Pontifex’; Temperanillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot & Syrah blend. Simple, smooth, overall very enjoyable wine with long finish.
From Granada region Merlot ‘delirio’. It is clear, rich yet smooth wine with long finish. Quite delicious!
Antakira from Malaga (Denominacion de Origen Sierras de Malaga) is lovely sweet Moscatel wine with slightly fruity flavour and medium finish.
Another local wine from Malaga region is Moscatel Naranja very sweet wine with orange flavour (it is aromatised with orange peels) – may slightly remind of Italian liqueur Limoncello. Perfect if paired with cheese tapas.
Because VINOleto is a small place, it’s larger selection of wines is available by the bottle only therefore to take advantage of all those delicious wine varieties it is recommended to bring few friends along!
