Over the years Rivera, one of Riga’s most beloved dining institutions, has developed a true world-class wine & drinks programme that would pretty much make any wine lover feel like in the 7th heaven. There’s literally something for any taste, any mood & knowledge level, any ambition & budget here. From tiny growers to global brands, from young and punchy to mature and relaxed, from Latvian grape wines to Italian natural stars, from Australian hippy winemakers to Left-bank first growths, from tiny Montagne de Reims growers to obscure Hungarian oldies… it’s a dream wine list meant to be D-R-U-N-K! Nicely designed, it includes 64 pages of pure joy… so look out for under-priced gems in every category and certainly talk to Ivars Kalniņš – one of the most experienced Latvian wine professionals, a board member of Latvian sommelier association, and the creator of this wonderful list! Cheers!

Riviera’s suggestion: We like to introduce guests to non-traditional wines, which occupy an increasing niche in restaurants – for example, Foradori Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco or one of the oldest Greek wine houses Semeli. It’s always a nice adventure for our guests! Alternatively, we could offer cocktail that we offer all year round – our Rhubarb Gin Fizz!

Our choice: A very juicy 2017 Conterno Fantino Barolo Ginestra “Vigna Sōri Ginestra” to go with Rivieras’ sublime Creamy Mushroom Risotto!
