At the little gourmet corner of Copenhagen, Refshaleøen, you find one of the leading restaurants in the city when it comes to sustainability – Amass. The restaurant has one of the deepest and most well-organized setups to be sustainable. Amass has its own garden where they can source many of the ingredients for the menu.
The venue is decorated with huge street art on the walls, which really showcases the style of restaurant. Chef/Owner Matt Orlando is well-known for being very focused on the products he is using, and always making sure to use the whole product.
About the Amass Wine List
The focus at Amass: low-intervention wines with a high sense of personality.
A really great selection at attractive prices. A wine list that makes me want to drink wine! says jury member Julie Dupouy-Young, three times Best Sommelier of Ireland, about Amass winning list in Star Wine List of the Year Denmark 2021.
We need more beverage (and restaurants) leading the pack towards sustainability the way Amass is doing it. They understood and put in practice the fact that sustainability is a whole system where each piece matters. The beverage selection of course, but also the packaging, the recycling, the serving parts as well as the eduction and the communication about it to spread the good words. Bravo! says the jury's Pascaline Lepeltier when Amass won gold in the category Sustainable Wine List 2022.
’Responsible Deliciousness’ is how they define their mindset. And how they have put it in practice is hugely impressive. Their work and efforts go way beyond food sustainability and aiming for zero waste in the restaurant; they extend to community and children outreach programs, regenerative agriculture support and so much more. Amass is an exemplary and inspirational model of true sustainability in action, says jury member Véronique Rivest when Amass won Best Sustainable Wine List Nordic 2022.
