Guten Weinen! 8 Berlin Wine Bars You Must Try


Germany's bustling capital is a culture haven; wine is no exception.
Culture website Thrillist highlighted the city in an article in which reporter Katherine Sacks identified an octet of Berlin's best wine bars. Though the wines may be difficult to pronounce, the visits could easily be unforgettable, she said.
“We all know Germans do great beer and that they're not slouches in the spirit department, yet for some reason, people don't entirely trust them to make a delicious bottle of vino … because both German wine and German wine bars can be fantastic,” Sacks wrote.
The list was split into three sections: where to go for German wine, where to go for Italian wine and where to go for French wine.
A quartet of wine bars made the list for their German selections: Cordobar, Weinbar Rutz, Weinstein and Vin Aqua Vin.
Sacks heaped praise of Mutz, located in Berlin's Mitte disctrict. 
“Why drink the best in Berlin when you can drink the best in Germany,” she asked. “With a whopping 900 bottles and a Michelin-starred chef behind the kitchen, this Mitte favorite was voted the best wine list in the country.”
While Mutz' high-profile wine list and 10-course tasting menu emit an air of wineostrocracy, Weinstein in the Prenzlauer Berg district evokes a different sense, she said.
“This place channels Old World Germany with lots of rustic wooden furniture (and) a menu heavy on tradition menus,” she noted. “It's well known as one of the best places to drink German and Austrian wines in the city.”
If Italian wines are your fancy, Sacks suggested two Mitte district wine bars: Muret La Barba and Weinbar Al Contadino Sotto le Stelle. 
La Barba, she said, features more than 200 Italian wine labels. 
“Even better, they'll open any one of those bottles for you to sample by the glass,” she wrote.
The decidedly Roman wine list places a special emphasis on “private and small label organic wines.”
The remaining two wine bars, both heavy on French wines, are known for two different themes: one cheese, the other chic.
La Käserie, located in Berlin´s Prenzlauer Berg destrict, “is much loved for its expansive selection of French curds – more than 50 cheeses directly imported from the source including some of the rarest, smelliest flavors,” Sacks wrote. 
Paris Bar, nestled in Charlottenberg, has a wine list teeming with offerings from Bordeaux and Burgundy. The wine bar, according to Sacks, is also popular with celebs – Paris Hilton and Madonna have been sported there.
