Weinköpfe on Tour. At my last stop in Berlin I've been on a mission to find the best wine bars in Berlin. Let me tell you about it.
Whilst on a recent trip in Berlin I went on a new wine adventure. I googled the closest wine bar and let the evening unfold itself.
Being a dedicated supporter of Rheinhessen I focused on trying wines from different German regions. Starting off at the contemporary Cordobar in Mitte I had an excellent Spätlese from Mittelrhein (Germany’s smallest wine region). Trusting the advice of the bartender I let them recommend my next port of call.
The next stop was the Bar Rutz & Restaurant on the fringes of Mitte. Bar Rutz is the wine bar authority in Berlin offering a huge selection in premium wines, specialising in Riesling. The Rutz VDP Kabinett from Saar was fresh, loads of juicy fruit and light. The service from the bar team here was excellent.
Last stop was JaJa Bar in Neukölln. My favourite out of the three. Fun, laidback, international. A mix of locals to mingle and wines to brabble about. All wines offered are natural, organic and from small producers. Slurping some interesting stuff, I had a fresh orange coloured Roditis from Greece which was pairing well with my late night cheese fest.
