Un chateau en ville by Lestrille, wine bar Bordeaux

Un Château en Ville, a new wine bar in Bordeaux

Château Lestrille is a family-run chateau in Entre-deux-Mers, the region between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. This is a region that most people only pass through going from Bordeaux to Saint Emilion. But if you stop you will discover a lot of good wine producers. One of our favourites here is Lestrille, located in the […]

We had dinner there just a few weeks after the opening and we were not disappointed. Not this time either. We have never been disappointed with Barrique. The concept here at Berzeliigatan […]

A memorable wine lunch in Languedoc

We were fortunate (you have to create your own luck!) to have a magnificent lunch and wine tasting at the wine tour we recently organised in the Languedoc-Roussillon. This district certainly merits becoming much better known among wine lovers: they make great wine and it is spectacularly beautiful. The small group of wine lovers that […]

Le Wine Bar, Bordeaux | BKWine Pick

Bordeaux has not been very well equipped with ambitious wine bars but it seems to be changing. Le Wine Bar Bordeaux opened a couple of years ago and was probably one of the first in a new wave of wine bars that is starting to make this elegant city better on that front. Le Wine […]

Wine bars in Copenhagen

A selection of wine bars (with restaurants) in Copenhagen, the Danish capital. It has been quite a while since we were in Copenhagen, and even longer since we were at a wine bar in the Danish capital. One who is a more frequent patron there is Magnus Ericsson, news chief at the daily paper Helsingborgs […]

”What is there to do in Paris?”

Someone asked us that question the other day so we sat down and wrote an email with a list. It ended up being a selection of all sorts of things: restaurants, wine bars, wine shops, museums, places to visit (don’t miss the Marché aligre!)… Then it struck us that perhaps that list could be interesting […]

An enjoyable trip to Paris – some recommendations

Someone recently asked us the question: Do you have any good recommendations for Paris? Restaurants that are good but not necessarily luxurious, nice place to visit, museums that one might not think of…? We should, shouldn’t we? So we sat down and gave it a thought. Since the people who asked the question would be […]

Box bar?

Can you make BiBs trendy? The first “pop up bar” is what they call it. The wine importer Philipson Söderberg has launched a wine bar dedicated to the “celebration of bag-in-box wines” in the centre of Stockholm. They will mainly (only?) be serving Fleur du Cap wine from plastic bags in cartons. It sounds about […]

Starbucks wine bars?

Starbucks is the world’s largest chain of coffee bars, best known for its selection of odd coffee-based concoctions with odd names. But also for its excellent espresso. They have now launched three experimental shops/bars in Seattle where they also will offer a selection of wines and beers. If it goes well we can expect to […]

A wine poster for your wall?

Willi’s Wine Bar in Paris is an excellent spot to go for a glass of wine or a (not so simple) thing to eat. Each years Mark Williamson, the owner, asks an artist to make a poster for the wine bar – now going 25 years back. 23 of the 25 posters are still available […]

Racine, Paris 2 | BKWine Pick

A small wine bar in one of the old ‘passages’ (indoor shopping gallery) close to the big boulevards. The peculiarity with this wine bar is that all wines are organic, many are even biodynamic and most are made entirely without sulphur (unusual). In other words, very interesting wines and sometimes also very good. But sometimes […]
