Over 70 people attended the grand opening of the Vinopolis Gastrobar last month where guests were treated to a range of 40 Mediterranean tapas and 60 international wines.

Fabian Picardo, Chief Minister, inaugurated the official opening and followed with a warm congratulatory speech before serving himself a glass of Picardo Reserva from an Enomatic wine serving machine.

In his speech at the opening John Isola, Managing Director of Anglo Hispano, spoke about the company’s long association with the premises and explained the concept.

“It was with great pleasure that we officially launched the Vinopolis Gastrobar concept in the company of the Chief Minister,” he said. “Our team have worked really hard to develop this new venture and to make it a reality. My thanks go to them and to all those involved.”

Vinopolis Gastrobar combines a modern concept of serving wine ‘by the glass’ with delicious food. Everything from an international healthy breakfast to small dishes of Mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist are on offer throughout the day and night.

Opening hours are from 8am to 11pm and all wines can be tasted by the glass using the latest technology in wine serving and preservation systems. A prepaid wine card can be purchased to try different wines at ease and all staff have received specialist training to help guests with their choice.
