The Concept

Our Philosophy

Imagine the perfect wine and retail experience. We did…and now we’ve created it at Vini e Capricci. A gourmet food and wine shop where you can sample wines and food every day…and then shop!

“Not only was it my vision to create an outlet supplying retail and trade clients with an exclusive selection of gourmet foods, award-winning wines and spirits to delight even the choosiest connoisseur, but I wanted to integrate a strong educational element. Not only do we want clients visiting Vini e Capricci to try before they buy, but we want to host events, tastings and the marrying of food, wine and art – all under one roof.”

Abraham Said – Owner

One side of our business caters to tasting and trying new wines, offering the best gifts and carrying very unique gifts. The other side strives to be everything our customers expect, honest, hardworking, “fun to be around”, knowledgeable and we promise to provide the best customer service.

The Wine Cellar is always open offering current release and new arrival wines. We will tell you what we’re excited about, guide you and answer any questions. We love to encourage you to try something new!

Apart from trying new wines and food, we also love to educate our customers about the products that we sell, and how best to serve them, to this aim we also organise Master Classes Wine Pairing Events and even Gourmet Tours abroad.

Vini e Capricci is located within the Gozitano Agricultural Village. Already this is an element that distinguishes it from an ordinary deli. But that’s what’s inside that leaves you flabbergasted.

Gianfranco Berta Lounge

As you walk into our Lounge; it’s like stepping into a grand archive or a master library of spirits and liquor. You will instantly appreciate and acknowledge the years spent by master distillers honing and perfecting their craft – enabling us to bring you our extensive selection of artisan alcohol. Our spirits have all been specifically chosen because of their taste, rarity or unusual distillation technique, creating a distinct highly sought after taste.

Our Lounge is home to over 300 different spirits. We have a great range of Whiskey, Grappa, Cognac, Armagnacs and Rums and an interesting selection of direct imported Gins; including an aged gin matured in cherry casks. We also sell Vodka, Brandy, Tequila and rare drinks sourced from all over the world. So, if you’d like to update or extend your alcohol collection this is the right place.

Our Whiskey range includes 60 or more different types including: Scottish, Irish, American and the highly desirable but hard to source Japanese Whiskey. Whether you are partial to peated, sweet, smokey or blended whiskey – we will definitely have liquors to suit your palate and preference.

We are hugely proud of our extensive Grappa collection (an amazing liquor made from grape must, aged in barrels) which has taken years for us to collect.

This is a unique location where you can taste the mastery, toil and talent of experienced distillers worldwide.

Vinoteca Livio Felluga

Our Vinoteca gives our customers a unique dining experience. This seats around 30 people; offering an intimate, relaxed and welcoming dining experience for all the family; bringing you the best in modern Italian/Mediterranean cuisine.

Our chefs regularly use the gourmet food which we have sourced for our store and incorporate these ingredients into their dishes too.

As we refresh our menu seasonally, we strive to include the best fare and are confident of bringing new taste experiences even to our most loyal, regular restaurant customers.

Plus, the unique advantage our clientele have when dining at the Vinoteca is that there’s a meat counter, an extensive wine cellar and an extensive list of Wine by the Glass.
