    Best Short List of the Year Finland 2021

Apart from the solid wine program, they’ve become famous for their servings of small-producer cheeses and charcuteries to go with the wine. Vin-Vin runs their own importing company, and thanks to that they’re able to get hold of some rare wines without prices going through the roof.
