    The younger sibling of BasBas, situated downstairs, is another very trendy place to eat out in Helsinki. The wine offering is extensive, leaning on playful and quirky choices.

Skin contact and low sulphite wines fill the expectations of those who want to venture into something different, but the long list of small producer wines has many options also for more classical tastes.
