Easter guide to wine in Oslo

Easter is approaching, and if you’re spending a few days off in the city, there is wine to enjoy. Maundy Thursday, good Friday and Easter day is normally closed in Oslo, but a few gems keep it up.

We have found a handful of places that run business as usual. Others restaurants or wine bars at Star Wine List Oslo may still keep open a few days or not at all.

Remember that it is always good to call in advance to find out more about the opening hours which still might vary somewhat.

    While Territoriet’s history only dates back to 2014, it has become an institution in Oslo with its extensive wine list and by the glass policy. The small wine bar is contemporarily decorated and has an intimate atmosphere which allows you to study the wine list in comfortable surroundings. Territoriet has a long wine list which covers most classical wine regions. While Territoriet has a special heart for the classics you will also find contemporary producers from the old and new world.
