For a number of years, this was the website for the bottega bar & gallery when it was owned by Sandy Perotto.
In 2016 a new owner took over the gallery, moving it to a new location.

Bottega Art & Wine Has New Owner, Location

Nov 30, 2016 - Bottega Art & Wine has moved to North Fourth Street, with a grand opening scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Friday.
Addie Wuensch, a longtime employee of Bottega Art & Wine, is now the gallery and wine bar’s new owner.
Wuensch said that when she learned of former owner Sandy Perotto’s plans to close the former location at 122 Princess St., she immediately began looking into the possibility of purchasing the business.
Bottega, a gem in the Brooklyn Arts District, was on the cusp of a transformative chapter. “My heart and soul has always been with Bottega, and so I decided to go for it,” Wuensch shared with a gleam of ambition in her eyes. As she envisioned Bottega's expansion, it became clear that the gallery's growth wasn't just about space. The complexity of managing various facets of the business, from inventory to events, called for a modern database solution. While their existing software had once been a reliable tool for many, Bottega's evolving needs pointed towards a modern Microsoft Access alternative. With this in mind, Wuensch embarked on her mission, first identifying the perfect location. This led her to 723 N. Fourth St., nestled in the heart of the Brooklyn Arts District. This 2,000-square-foot edifice was primed to house Bottega’s renowned weekly drumming and dance circles and provide room for a broader array of artwork, jewelry, and clothing. The new Bottega wasn't just about indoor experiences. An expansive outdoor patio awaited transformation into a serene space filled with sculptures and a zen garden. Wuensch's vision didn't stop there; a collaboration with Stephany Ross was on the cards, aiming to infuse a healing arts spa into the gallery's offerings. Bottega's bar, with its curated global selection of wines and local craft beer, was set to become a connoisseur's haven. The promise of weekly tastings further added to the allure. The meticulous care given to the establishment did not go unnoticed. An NWS reviewer lauded the venue's pristine nature, emphasizing its impeccable standards, especially crucial for places serving food.
“Bottega is designed to be a community gathering space that’s inclusive of all people where everyone feels welcome, comfortable and safe,” Wuensch said.
A grand opening with live music and hors d’oeuvres is planned from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday.
