The Enoteca Johnson & Dipoli in Neumarkt
The village of Neumarkt is located in the Unterland, around an hour’s drive from the Hotel Erzherzog Johann. The Enoteca Johnson & Dipoli is to be found in the medieval arcades. “I am the wine list”, says host Vincenzo De Gasperi with confidence, and it is a fact that celebrities such as Mario Adorf and wine experts from home and abroad appreciate the advice of this Master of Wine when selecting from his range of almost 300 different types.
The Enoteca is steeped in tradition, with the host personally choosing the stock year after year, and combines a stylish restaurant, a wine bar and a wholesale outlet. The restaurant has but a few tables, with a small handwritten menu offering exquisite dishes from both Mediterranean and regional cuisines. The host Enzo will recommend an appropriate wine. A stop at Johnson & Dipoli is a must when touring along the famous Wine Route through the south of South Tyrol. The excellent food and wines are certainly not cheap, but are well worth the outlay.
After your visit we would recommend a walk through the beautiful arcades of Neumarkt. These include the building where Andreas Hofer was held captive before being transported to Mantua.
