We're going on a cruise and I want to bring prosecco and champagne on board. I did a search and found this info on Enoteca Cantinone, but I want to be armed with more possibilities in case this one's closed or I get lost. :D TIA.

"Enoteca Cantinone Gia Schiavi di Gastaldi Lino (its address is 992 Dorsoduro, which doesn't mean much, but is near the Peggy Guggenheim collection on a fairly major Canal)."

"You'll find the place just SW of the Accademia bridge. Go in the afternoon with an appetite and you will not be disappointed because they have outstanding wine by the glass and cicchetti as well."

"Enoteca Cantinone serves various crostini for 1,00 each, as well as a number of glasses of wine. (A small glass, called "un 'ombra" in Venetian, costs less than a euro.) Several of the crostini were fantastic, including the bacala mantecata, the runny mozzarella with pickled endive, and the uova e crema tartufo - or egg and truffle cream. My wife and I had three glasses of wine (bicchieri) each, two spritz, and about 10 crostini for about 22 euros. It's also an amazing wine store to boot - the bathroom is a bit on the sketchy side, though..."
