Our Favourite Wine Bars In Berlin

Forget beer - Berlin's wine scene is much more exciting! Here is a list of our favourite wine bars in Germany's capital.

In our collective imagination Germany and beer go together like peanut butter and jelly, but did you know the country is actually also a major player in the wine world? Germany is home to many great wine-growing regions, especially along the river Rhine and its tributaries. German wines are heavily showcased in Berlin. The Erben winery, located in the Moselle valley, even opened a pop-up wine bar on top of Neukölln’s tax and revenue office last summer.

However, the influx of foreigners who have moved to the city over the past decade means French, Italian and even Serbian wines are getting more represented, be it through special events, wine shops, bars or independent importers.

Berlin has got a wine bar for every occasion

An interesting current trend is Berlin’s interest for natural wines. Also called naked wines, these wines are produced with as little human intervention as possible and without additives. Today, several venues focus on this type of wine in Berlin, often all while providing guests with excellent local food and ingredients to accompany their wine selection.

Natural or not, simple or upscale, Berlin has got a wine bar for every occasion. Read on for our selection of the best places to enjoy wine in Germany’s capital city.

Wild Things

Wild Things opened earlier this year and is Industry Standard’s little brother. Ran by the same team as the infamous eatery, it offers high quality natural wines, especially from France, as well as food that does not compromise on quality. Don’t miss their short-rib (or aubergine, for the veggies) toastie and have a portion of their brown butter popcorn too—you won’t regret it.

jaja

Also fairly new to the scene, Jaja is another spot that focuses on French natural wine and great food. The French-German couple that runs the small yet cosy place is dedicated to serving an ever-changing selection of wines, and you’ll be sure to try something new if you pass by their space.
 


Weichselstraße 7, 12043 Berlin, Germany

Cordobar

If variety is what you’re after, head to Cordobar. The German-Austrian establishment has been around for a few years now and boasts a selection of around one thousand bottles for pretty much any price. They also serve creative and interesting dishes and the place is a notorious hangout for Berlin’s gastronomy scene.

MAXIM

Located in Berlin-Mitte, Maxim also focuses on natural wines and its selection includes up to twenty wines to try by the glass. The owner has a soft spot for wines from the Burgundy region—one of the most renowned in the world—, which makes a visit to Maxim more than worth it. Last but not least, they regularly host one-off events revolving around food or foreign wine.

Brut

Brut aims to feature “German hospitality and French savoir-vivre” and serves drinks and food from both countries on Berlin-Mitte’s famous Torstrasse. Its cosy interior makes it a great winter hangout for some pre-dinner wine and cheese. Maybe one of the most fashion-savvy places on this list, we bet it’d make the perfect date spot.

La Buvette

La Buvette provides affordable wines from all over France as well as a selection of French dishes that are as comforting as they are delicious—think beef tartar and fries, quiche Lorraine and, of course, cheese and charcuterie. Here again, expect a cosy and welcoming atmosphere—this time in Prenzlauer Berg.

Briefmarken Weine

Specialising in Italian products, this pretty wine bar is located in Friedrichshain. As its name suggests, used to be a stamp shop and its interior still features some of the original furniture. If Berlin’s long winter is taking a toll on you, this is the place to go for some sunny drinks and food. As a quick fix, try some of their Italian cheeses or go for their daily pasta dish while indulging in a glass or two of local wine—now enjoy that dolce vita!
