If you’ve got the room, we’ve got the Vino

Roomorama selects wines from Vino wines for exclusive party

Last night I was on hand to pour wines from Vino at a party for friends and clients of Roomorama.com, held at the internet start-up’s lofty East Village HQ. Launched last year by young social entrepreneurs Federico Folcia and Jia En Teo, Roomorama is a peer-to-peer short-term rental marketplace based on the concept of online social networking. Following its initial success in New York, this unique facility is now in eight other major North American cities — Boston, Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Miami and Vancouver.

Guests tucked into fresh spicy Asian dumplings which paired surprisingly well with the selection of wines from Vino.

The event featured three wines from Vino: Gavignano, the Chardonnay-Sauvignon Blanc blend by Chianti Rufina producer Travignoli, Enrico Coser’s 100% Merlot, Clic Rosso, and the ICEA-certified Nero d’Avola by ERA. All the wines proved extremely popular with the crowd of young social networkers and media professionals in attendance. Once the last of the remaining guests had departed we assessed the damage and counted the empty bottles, after which Fede and I even found room to discuss the plight of his beloved Milan
