SOMM The Wine Bar Wine List
About SOMM The Wine Bar
Based in the heart of Vilnius, wine bar SOMM was created by the two champions of sommelier competitions, Narimantas Miežys and Arminas Darasevičius. As the name implies, wine and its stewards are the center of everything that happens here, so expect a knowledgeable team, good service, tasty wine pairings, and plenty of wine-related stories.
The food served here is comforting, full of flavour, and made for sharing. It is created to suit SOMM’s wine list, which covers not only the classic regions from around the world but also the rising ones, such as Georgia, Armenia, and Lebanon. Overall, well-known producers dominate the selection, but you may find some less famous up-and-coming names as well. The wines are well-priced and a wide selection of wines by the glass invites guests to explore. The place is popular and is usually buzzing with life, especially around weekends, so make sure to book a table in advance.
With its compact list, this venue manages to offer various styles by the glass including both classic choices and unexpected gems, said Heidi Mäkinen on SOMM The Wine Bar's success in the Best by the Glass List, Lithuania, 2023 in which the venue won Gold.
The Austrian section have several labels from some of the most important wine players of Austria, said Paz Levinson on SOMM The Wine Bar's Gold medal triumph in the Best Austrian Wine List, Lithuania 2023 category. Not a huge diversity of producers but interesting labels with back vintages. We can find sparkling and sweet wines with a couple of red wine references.
