Italian term or phrase: bottega da vino
"classica 'bottega da vino' di fine Ottocento"

This is for a brochure for an historic wine and liqueur shop here in Italy, so I'm hoping to find a very precise (maybe historic) term for this type of "bar/tavern". I'll also need to use the Italian term in the brochure, so I really do need an Engish equivalent if possible.

English translation:wine shop - wine shoppe - wine seller
Explanation:
Shop \Shop\, n. [OE. shoppe, schoppe, AS. sceoppa a treasury, a storehouse, stall, booth; akin to scypen a shed, LG. schup a shed, G. schoppen, schuppen, a shed, a coachhouse, OHG. scopf.] 1. A building or an apartment in which goods, wares, drugs, etc., are sold by retail.
From shop to shop Wandering, and littering with unfolded

from Webster

Byron, apparently, uses the word "shop"

I give you the old-fashioned spelling, as a possibility, although I don`t like the modern use of shoppe. In your case, though, it might be historically accurate.

I don`t see any way around translating bottega with shop, or wine seller.

Great idea! I think the old spelling is appropriate for this place because they've really maintained that old-fashioned feel -- you know, authentically old, not old but posh. Thanks!
