CG in Luleå is a steakhouse restaurant but it does have seafood and vegetarian options on menu. We like to visit the wine cellar that offers plenty of options from classical wine regions in France and Italy, but also bottles from New World countries like Australia, Chile and the USA. If you like producers like DRC in Burgundy and Guigal, Clape and Gonon in the Rhone Valley, there are plenty of reasons to check out the CG wine list.

The restaurant Dryck & Mat is one of Swedish wine writer Anders Melldén's favourites in Uppsala: "Dryck & Mat is for the people who want to enjoy exciting wines from small producers, often more or less natural. The beverage and the wine list comes first and influences the menu. The food is excellent and suits the many wines that are served by the glass."

Is it possible that German wines and food is becoming a thing in Stockholm? First we had Bar Central and then E&G. Now we’d like to recommend Sekt which serves a tasty modern south west-German cuisine in a somewhat brutal modern bistro Berlin feeling in central Stockholm. The menu is both a la carte and set menus.
Address: Fleminggatan 62B, Stockholm
Kungsholmens vinbar is a neighbourhood wine bar that has a small bar counter and several small tables. It has quickly become a neighbourhood joint that fills up with families and older patrons.

Vinverket, located in northern Vasastan in central Stockholm, is more of a wine bar than a restaurant, and it feels like coming home to friends. Going down the stairs a few steps, and you'll find a wine cooler reaching from floor to ceiling, and a solid kitchen table serving both as bar and workplace. Walk a few more meters and sit down by the small tables, perfect for a tête a tête. You will be served smaller dishes, influenced by the Mediterranean cuisine.

Wine bar and restaurant E & G (short for Egon and Gösen) is located at Birger Jarlsgatan in Stockholm, a few minute’s walk from the crowded neighbourhoods around Odengatan. The place is relaxed, like a living room away from home. The food is rustic and tasty and made for sharing – snacks, smaller dishes and stews. Small, intimate and cosy and with an interior where wine is, literally, all around you.

Farang takes guests on a journey to Southeast Asian cuisines. The restaurant is located in an old factory hall and the rustic backdrop contrasts with the warm atmosphere. The restaurant is decidedly high end - great food. The bar in the front is cool and serves simpler dishes. For a fine dining lunch experience, this is one of my main choices in Stockholm.
Address: Erstagatan 21, Stockholm
International By the Glass List, presented by Coravin 2021
Experienced sommeliers Béatrice Becher and Jonas Sandberg opened the Stockholm wine bar they wanted to visit themselves in this eastern Södermalm part of town. The name plays on the French word for madness, Folie. As you'll see on the interior, it’s loosely related to Territoriet in Oslo. Folii is one of the best wine bars in town and they have won our wine list competition in the By the glass-category several times. There are tasty small dishes on the menu and if you are eager for a more full meal - drop in to their restaurant next door: Voisine.
