Sometimes "wine-tasting" in a touristy destination can be a bit sketchy, but Vino Prima is the real deal. They offer an extensive collection of wine (by the glass and flight) and a knowledgeable staff whose recommendations were spot-on. Even as self-proclaimed wine-snobs (or at least...More
We decided to check the wine bar out after dinner. We like seeing local people who know the wine around them. We ordered to inexpensive flights, and then asked about some specific wines, and they really knew their stuff. The person helping us brought a...More
