    Best Cider List of the Year Norway, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    Park Hotel Vossevangen is not a place visited for its convenient access – it is a place worth traveling for. Located in a village in the Western part of Norway, at least the road trip from Bergen can be spectacular. At Park Hotel Vossevangen it is possible to attend tastings in the wine cellar or try their restaurant Elysée which offers a classic menu.

    Newcomer List of the Year Norway, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    Hermetikken Restaurant started as a wine bar and is now a full-fledged restaurant with a well-curated wine list. The restaurant is located in the beautiful Ledaal park, a short walk up from the city centre. This stylish venue is the second place opened by the people behind Norvald Vinbar, Silje Hanasand and Knut-Espen Misje (Star Wine List's Bergen and Stavanger ambassador). Here you can sit back, relax, and enjoy our seasonal menu whether you sit at one of the tables, at the bar or in one of the windows overlooking the park. Chef Stuart Barber oversees the kitchen. He is an alumni of top UK...

    Address: Torshovgata 15, Oslo

    By the Glass List of the Year Norway, presented by Zwiesel, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    A “hole-in-the-wall” wine bar in the residential area of Torshov. 30 square meters of wine and a fun, warm and welcoming atmosphere, centred around their bar and a few tables. Al fresco drinking is possible when Norwegian summers allow for it. Lasarett serves small dishes (like cold cuts and cheese) and also hosts occasional pop-ups which are always popular. The look is raw and industrial. Voted best wine bar by the local Oslo newspaper ‘Aftenposten’, in December 2023. Great selection by the glass from a wine list covering all bases.

  5. Address: Øvre Holmegate 3, Stavanger

    Norvald Vinbar opened in January 2022 in the centre of Stavanger. The venue occupies a corner section with generous ceiling height and large windows. It seats around thirty-five people inside and twenty-something outside when the weather allows it. The space is inviting, cosy and warm with Norwegian design furniture. The centre of attention is a built-in, temperature-controlled wine wall that holds approximately 2,000 bottles. The wine list has around 400 references and offers quite a few wines by the glass. All wines are served in high-quality glasses. The wines are predominantly from wor...

    Address: Holmens gate 4, Oslo

    The wine list at this small and cosy wine bar in the rather touristy area of Aker Brygge is thirty-plus pages deep, making it a proper safe haven for all wine lovers. The owner's love for Californian wines is evident, however, the selection is wide and covers all major areas from the “old world” as well as top-tier names from the “new world” outside the USA. Nice and relaxed vibe, and they open at 13:00 at weekends, making an escape from the shopping centre next door easily achieved. Serving cheese and cold cuts as well. Short but well-curated by the glass list.

  7. Address: Markveien 58, Oslo

    Although only established in 2014, Territoriet on Grünerløkka is already firmly established as a mainstay on the Oslo wine scene. Pre-2014, Oslo was rather dry concerning wine bars – not anymore, however, and we can thank Territoriet a lot for their trailblazing work. The bar is not very much larger than “a hole in the wall”, intimate for sure and may get busy and crowded late at night during weekends and leading up to weekends. Their by-the-glass program is massive – the widest selection in town. Contemporary and raw interiors, with wines leaning towards the more classical regions/styles, h...

  8. Address: Operagata 11, Oslo

    By the Glass List of the Year Norway, presented by Zwiesel, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2023

    A small and cosy wine bar located in the recently developed Bjørvika area. Opens early-ish on Saturdays, hence a good spot for a glass from their extensive and deep wine list of more than 1,000 references. A solid by-the-glass program as well; very educative, and great for the not-so-geeky people looking to broaden their horizons and learn a thing or two. The big list is rather traditionally focused, and very strong on Bordeaux in particular (a rare find these days).
