Aperitivo Lenitivo – Take two!


A month has flown by since our first Aperitivo Lenitivo, and we are now ready for the second take, this Friday 27th June, between 18:00 and 21:00.

As before, there’ll be yummy food to go with your large Spritz Aperol and a lovely room to keep warm in, should the Berlin summer hit out with a vengeance again…and if sunny (that would be lovely), we’ll take to the street!

As before, a prize will go to the person who brings the most people along, so ask your friends, family, colleagues.


And with no football games scheduled on the day, something to keep you occupied, or maybe just a breath of fresh air…

We are looking forward to seeing you this Friday!

The Autochthon Wine Fair is back!

Strong on the success of the first Autochthon Wine Fair in November last year, which saw some 30 wine producers from Friuli, South Tyrol, Austria, and Germany come together in sweet harmony and showcase wines to make even Dionysus and Bacchus proud, the team are at it again, and are delighted to present you the second Autochthon Wine Fairon 14th-15th June 2014.  

This year’s focus will include wines from Italy (FriuliTuscany, Umbria, the Marches, Trentino, Veneto, Piedmont), as well as Portugal, Spain, Hungary and of course Germany, with all in all some 25 wine producers presenting.

In the tasting hall, the wines and the bread will go humbly together, while in the back garden guests will be able to tuck into some traditional salsiccia Friulana, expertly prepared by the Master of the Grill.

And this year, something new! Autochthon’s very own fashion designer Manuela Pott, from Pott Manu-Facture, will be showcasing pieces from her collection, while Autochthon’s organisers Giuliano and Benjamin will also be donning their custom made outfits. We can’t wait to see them, rumour has it they are going to look very cool!

Tickets for this event are available to purchase online until 13th June, in person at Osteria Donath, and on the day.

Time to raise your glasses! (And slurp and spit…)


Thank you all who, despite the rain, came to our first Aperitivo Lenitivo yesterday!

It was great to see familiar and new faces happily mingling in our hidden taverna.

We enjoyed it and we hope you did too! And as we are going to make this a regular event, comments or suggestions are also welcome. (Simply email us at: donath.salumeriafriulana@gmail.com)

In the heat of the moment, however, a very important detail got overlooked! That is, to award the prize to the person who brought the most people along! And the prize goes to…. …ratatantan (drum roll, that is…) ratatantan…..TIZIANA TALOCCI, who brought a lovely bunch of ladies with! Tiziana wins a free entry for two people at our next Aperitivo Lenitivo, on Friday 27th June.

Tiziana, please come and collect your voucher any time in Salumeria, or you can of course also simply turn up on the evening. And of course we look forward to seeing you all again at our next Aperitivo Lenitivo, or sooner!

p.s. you may be wondering what this picture has to do with our evening…well not much! But we do think it’s a nice filler, while we upload some more relevant images.

Join us for our very first Aperitivo!

On Friday 23rd May, Salumeria will be hosting its first Aperitivo evening! We are polishing our glasses, dusting off the Prosecco bottles, and getting the Aperol ready for action.

We’ll be serving some yummy bites too, and we even have a prize for the person who brings the most people!  We hope you can join us.

And we’re already thinking of our next one too, the last Friday in June. So save the date!
