Refresh – Antiche Dogane

Despite being just a few steps from the Duomo, this little wine bar is just what you need if your after a tranquil space to rest your feet from wandering around Florence.

Specialising in small producers from around Tuscany (plus a few wines from further afield), this is a great place to try something by lesser known producers, and a little off-piste.

They have a revolving wine by the glass selection, which means they don’t have a written menu but are happy to talk you through the wines they have open each day! It also means it’s a great excuse to visit multiple times as you can expect different wines every day!

From a beautiful Barolo, to the famous Palazzi from Andrea Franchetti, alongside a velvety smooth Vino Nobile di Montepulciano – there’s always something exciting to try. Perfectly paired with a plate of locally sourced cheese and meats, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

For those looking for something white and local, their selection of Vermentino’s was incredible, plus if your after something sweet the two Moscato’s they had available were absolutely delicious.

Found on Piazza Sant’Elisabetta, make sure you check this cute little wine bar out. They also have a focus on shipping wines back to your home, with very competitive prices!
