Vineria Ventidue

About

Vineria Ventidue  was started in May 2017, as a result of a somewhat romantic project initiated long before the restaurant was opened: the farm Casa Tancredi and a search for identity.

Sandro Parmeggiani, founder and main owner, explains:

- In October 2012 I fulfilled a dream that I´d carried for years; I bought a small farm (Casa Tancredi) in Lazio, Italy. The property is located in the middle of Italy, only an hour`s drive from fantastic Rome. I am proud of my Italian heritage, of beautiful Italy – with all its strengths and flaws – and naturally of my father, the artist Tancredi Parmeggiani. So, midways in life, after having lived most of it in Norway, I wanted to explore my country of birth. 

Casa Tancredi is a project that has been carried out with passion, due to a search for my Italian roots, to honour my father and last but not least because I met my dear Hanne. We have put in quite an effort into turning Casa Tancredi to the paradise it is today – both the land and the houses. We are now finally producing both an olive oil of high quality and a very decent red wine from Sangiovese and Merlot grapes.

Another reason for establishing the restaurant was that I have lived in the Frogner-area for almost 30 years, and I really love my neighbourhood. After we started with olive oil and wine production, we kept thinking about the lack of a cosy restaurant and wine bar in our area – preferably Italian of course! And a place we could eventually even sell our own products...  

The idea that the restaurant should be exactly where it is, came during one of many lunches at Osteklokken, a former café that used to be at the same spot. And why did we choose the name?  Well, “Vineria” means wine bar in Roman and “Ventidue” means 22 – the number of our street address.  

Since running a business alone is boring, I invited my wife Hanne, a lawyer, and our eminent Head Chef, Massimo, to participate on this exciting journey.  

Maria and Even Aas-Eng, a couple running their own successful businesses, also bought a small part of the restaurant in the autumn of 2018. They share our passion for good food and wine, live in the area as well and have been a great addition to the Vineria team.   


Myself, I´m a very dedicated and rather operational chairman of the board!
