The small room that could potentially be made chaotic by the presence of hundreds of wine bottles around its tight borders is juxtaposed by a calm instilled through the key elements that make this place what it is: friendly with a nurturing, simple menu and an ethos of provenance and quality.

In the traditional sense, an Enoteca is an Italian word meaning a place to have drink and something small to eat usually within a regional context; that is, serving the local wine, usually with food from the region to accompany the drink. This fits the brief perfectly as Gertrude St Enoteca is very Melbourne in its approach and its product serving wines from Victoria (with breathtaking European choices selected by co-owner James Broadway) as well as delicious meals offered on a succinct menu; think local produce treated intelligently and simply as co-owner, chef and local food advocate Brigitte Hafner is in the kitchen.
