Cantinetta Antinori to launch on Harriet Street this Spring
30 March 2023
April 24th, 2023, will see the launch of the first UK restaurant from the renowned Antinori winemaking family. Cantinetta Antinori will bring Tuscan hospitality and wines to Harriet Street, located just off London’s famous Sloane Street.
The name behind some of Italy’s most prestigious wines, including Tignanello and Cervaro della Sala, Antinori began producing wine in 1385. The company is now led by the 26th generation, sisters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia Antinori, and attributes its success to a constant stream of innovation underpinned by a deep respect for tradition.
The first Cantinetta Antinori was opened by Niccolò Antinori in 1957 in the fifteenth-century Palazzo Antinori, the family’s historical home in the centre of Florence. The new Cantinetta Antinori will be the first London opening for the family.
The new London opening marks an exciting collaboration between two families: the Antinori family, committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries across 26 generations, and the Giraudis, renowned restaurateurs led by Riccardo Giraudi, with over 32 restaurants between Paris, Monaco, Mexico, Hong Kong and beyond.
Allegra Antinori comments, “Cantinetta Antinori has been part of Florentine city life since 1957, motivated by the desire of having people experience a taste of typical Tuscan hospitality, with perfect pairings between our wines and the traditional cuisine. Still inspired by the same passion, we are excited to begin our new story in London and welcome the community with our heartfelt Tuscan hospitality.”
