Have you ever walked into a wine shop and felt an instant sense of intimidation? You scan the aisles for a familiar label, walking aimlessly, trying to hide the fact that you know nothing about wine. You grab a bottle for its nice label and get the hell out of there. A quiet corner within the Umspannwerk, however, holds the answer: Ladidadi. Every Friday, this natural wine shop transforms into a tasting room, to which owner Florian Tonello invites winemakers, importers and connoisseurs to share their passion with enthusiasts and drink some awesome natural vino. These intimate events offer the opportunity not only to try a variety of wines, but also to learn more about the funky grape juice direct from the producers themselves. Let these wines guide your journey, maybe even through the rolling hills of Tuscany or Rheinhessen. Follow Ladidadi on Facebook to stay in the loop with who’s up next.
