One day, I corralled some friends — travel-happy dads like me — for drinks at Vino Rosso, an Italian wine bar recommended by a Mission Parents member for its “Wine & Whiners” Wednesdays, where we knocked back $4 glasses of prosecco while our children played with dishwasher-sterilized plastic toys provided by the bar. In one corner, a few moms watched us, and we felt like superstars — responsible dads with social lives to boot.
The new pocket-size wine bar in Bernal Heights is run by Roman native and experienced sommelier Giuseppe Manna and his wife, Vega Freeman-Brady. Take a seat at one of eight small tables for two and sip on rare southern Italian vintages like Nero d’Avola, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, and Negroamaro. The knowledgeable staff is on hand to educate patrons about the wine they’re swirling.
