Fitzgerald Wine List
Unarguably amongst the three best wine restaurants in The Netherlands is the contemporary Michelin-starred restaurant Fitzgerald in the centre of Rotterdam next to the famous Rotterdam foodcourt (markthal) and cubic houses. This well-designed restaurant is a combination of a classy-chique and comfortable warmth. Owner and host Danny Gonzalez, who has been named host of the year by GaultMillau, is a true wine fanatic. No matter who you are, he always finds the perfect wine for you in every style or pricerange. Fitzgerald is on the one hand a great place for business meals for those who want to be well looked-after, but don't want the stiffness of toprestaurants. On the other it is a warm choice for those who feel they want to step up their normal bistro dining experience.
About the Fitzgerald Wine List
Fitzgerald's winelist breathes owner Danny's passion for wine combined with a hawk-eye for detail and specificity. The selection of Loire wines with an extensive list of aged Cotat, Dagueneau, Collier and Guiberteau is impressive. Danny's love for Wachau wines is expressed in a diversity of cuvées and vintages from the Wachau's top producers. Give Danny your trust in his selection and he will not disappoint.
The wine list is deep and wide, it has a classic sense, it has great organisation, you can follow all the way through, and it is specialised on a global level without losing focus. An amazing wine list, and very fair priced. I’d love to come and drink here!
A great wine list doesn’t only have one clear focus, but a great depth in many categories. Someone has really looked into each region, knows the producers and has presented them very well.
The Austrian wines were really well represented, not only the whites but also a fine red wine selection. Wonderful sweet wines as well, and a few nice selections by the glass and some bubbles. All styles are well represented and it covers the majority of the Austrian wine regions
This was a tight competition, but what struck me with Fitzgerald was the variety of richness, independent of the level of pricing. Someone really put an effort into selecting quality wines, regardless of pricing. It shows that someone really cares about what they are doing, said jury member Arvid Rosengren when Fitzgerald won Gold in By The Glass Wine List 2021.
