Profile Last Updated: March 30, 2009
Located in the revitalized community of Victoria Park, Zia’s Enoteca is another member among the Calgarian wine bar revolution. Zia’s historic building is made modern with a décor that includes a massive granite top bar, dark wood paneling and bright natural lighting -- adding up to an atmosphere that is both chic and yet casual. Zia’s is part of a trend that provides a place for people to meet, relax and enjoy la dolce vita.
Nectar of the Gods
As any self-respecting wine bar, Zia’s offers a large selection of wines from which to choose. In fact, their temperature-controlled wine room displays 730 bottles. Guests can order by the bottle or glass, of course, but they can also order by 2oz pours, which allows a larger variety of wine to be sampled. Zia’s also specializes in “flights”, which are three or four 2-oz pours of a variety of wines by varietals or geographical regions.
Food for Thought
Enoteca is Italian for wine bar, and this Italian wine bar is made complete with their food menu. Zia’s pairs Italian cuisine with wine properly and with passion. Specializing in “Piccolo Piatto”, which is not unlike a tapas menu, guests are encouraged to share plates with friends, contributing to a relaxed and casual visit.
