A cellar for wine lovers

A cellar for wine lovers

If you’re looking for something different from the regular bottles at the shop, then a stop in Gloria Veinikelder is a must.

The wine cellar and restaurant offer customers 700-800 different wines from 25 different countries.

“We are a chateau-style wine restaurant. While we don’t grow or press the grapes ourselves, we offer wine degustation, meals, and a shop where you can buy bottles to bring home”, explains Marko Hark, the restaurant’s owner and sommelier.

When you first walk into Gloria Veinikelder, there is a store where you can buy almost anything made from grapes. The oldest bottle on the shelf id from 1939.

Hark says that the wine cellar focuses on smaller, Old World producers.

Next, you will find the cosy restaurant. We tried the octopus carpaccio to start, which was soft and delicate, served with the unlikely combination of truffle cream and marinated apples.

 

For the main, we tried the duck breast, which played with pleasantly sweet elements. In addition to the sweet potato, it was also served with red onion and black lentils.

In summer, a small terrace sits in front of the restaurant, where you can enjoy a small selection of tapas with your wine.
