Astoria’s favorite wine bar offers a complimentary appetizer

with the purchase of a bottle of wine.

DiWine, the uniquely cozy wine bar tucked away on 31st Avenue in Astoria, is celebrating summer by offering customers a complimentary bruschetta appetizer with the purchase of a bottle of wine. The offer begins June 21st and runs through August 31st.

“Summer is the perfect time for relaxing with friends, lingering over a bottle of wine and enjoying good food and conversation,” said Ifeta Dzidzovic, owner of DiWine. “We offer a varied selection of wines and all are priced at $32 a bottle. With the purchase of any one of these wines, our guests will receive a complimentary appetizer of their choice from our tapas menu.”

Offering wines from Argentina, Australia, California, Chili, France, Italy and Spain all at the same price is only one of the special features of DiWine. The world-fusion menu is also similarly priced. “Our salads all cost $8; or meat entrees are all $22 and our seafood entrees are all priced at $17,” said Ifeta. “You should be able to enjoy the entrée of your choice without worrying about a few dollars difference in the cost.” DiWine also offers an array of tapas selections ranging from $6 to $12, an assortment of cheese plates ranging from $15 to $30, and desserts all priced at $7. The restaurant’s full menu can be viewed at www.diwineonline.com.


Walking into DiWine gives the feeling of entering a friend’s stylish living room – the décor is high-end yet warm and welcoming. The environmentally-friendly space features plush brown sofas adorned with soft pillows; rustic wood decorations highlight the neutral-colored walls and airy bamboo lights hang overhead. Candles light the wooden lounge tables and bar, and bamboo placemats line the tall dining tables. “We want DiWine to be a place where our guests can come after a hectic day, a place of retreat that relaxes the body and all the senses,” said Ifeta.
