    Tuulensuu is a truly legendary place in Tampere. Although most customers go for their diverse and ever-changing beer selection, the wine list is also vast, with a producer focus and many back vintages. Many of the wines are bought from the restaurant’s van-driving trips to European wine regions, so some wines are only available at their premises. The gastropub menu has both wine and beer recommendations for each course and the selection of spirits, especially absinthes, can be overwhelming. This is not for those who want a fancy dinner, but if you’re happy with a Schnitzel and a great wine at...

    Being one of the top restaurants in Tampere, Bertha’s wine program has seen unique selections throughout the years and the restaurant also imports some specific producers just for their own use.
