Experienced sommeliers Béatrice Becher and Jonas Sandberg opened the wine bar they wanted to visit themselves and it’s loosely related to Territoriet in Oslo. There is a varied and very interesting mix of older vintages, regions and types on the Folii wine list. Folii uses Coravin to offer almost any wine by the glass. The name plays on the French word for madness, Folie.

When the experienced sommeliers Robert Andersson and Fredrik Iveskär planned the wine bar Hornstulls Bodega, they said they wanted something messy. It might not sound that nice but messy is actually a code word for “non-formal, busy, great wines and great ambiance”. And that’s exactly what they built. The Hornstulls Bodega wine list reaches from classic greats to the latest cool. Nowadays Andersson and Iveskär have moved on to their own wine import firm, but the ambiance and ambitious wine selection remain.
