BasBas Kulma Wine List

About BasBas Kulma

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. The long line of bar stools helps to seat walk-ins and the char grill adds depth and flavour to dishes that embrace the wines being poured.

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.
