N’OMBRA DE VIN is the most beloved wine heaven in Milan, situated under the remarkable San Marco Basilica dating since the 13th Century. Established in 1973 by a historic family of wine merchants, the venue evolved into an extraordinary wine cellar – the first in Italy to import wine from abroad, with a focus on the wines of France. The owner Cristiano Corà has shaped N’Ombra de Vin’s wine vision for over twenty years now. With passion and dedication he has reconstructed the enchanted vault and transformed it into a paradise for wine lovers, homing more than 2500 labels. The underground space is a curious gallery of special rare wines accompanied by an extraordinary wine tasting soireés. In addition, today N’Ombra de Vin is part of the prestigious KRUG Ambassade.
In the last 15 years, N’Ombra de Vin, has developed from the best in town (and not only) wine merchant into a wine shop with a gourmet bar restaurant. The venue provides one of the game-changing restaurant experiences for those in the know and is a go-to place for the bohemian stylish crowd and the international visitors to the city. In addition to the unique experience, Cristiano joined forces with Camillo Carmignani, Parma&Co – a historic name for cured meats and cheese; and introduced the best of the best products from Italy in N’Ombra.
