Join us in our downstairs bar for a glass franciacorta – the elegant sparkling wine known as Italy's answer to champagne. Franciacorta is richer and more complex than prosecco. Try it once and you'll be a convert.
Not heard of franciacorta before? That's understandable. While cava and prosecco are well known in the UK, franciacorta isn't easily available outside Italy so it's still unfamiliar to many wine drinkers here.
Our family connections have owned an award-winning vineyard in Sicily for four generations, so it's fair to say we know a little bit about Italian wine. We've hand-selected each one to ensure every choice you make is a good one. Classic Italian cocktails, beer and premium spirits make up our drinks list.
Produced in the Lombardy region, franciacorta is known as Italy's answer to champagne thanks to its complex taste, gentle effervescence and second fermentation production method. But unlike champagne, only a small percentage of bottles are exported, making it one of Italy's best kept secrets.
Blue Lobster is one of the few establishments in the North West to serve franciacorta. If you'd like to try it, why not drop into our bar? We serve it by the glass and the bottle.
