Vinkkeli, established in 2016, has quickly become one of the iconic wine restaurants in Helsinki. The team behind the restaurant is well-known, and have been working in some of Helsinki’s most famous venues before opening Vinkkeli. The food is classic European with a modern twist, served the old-school way with white table cloths.
There’s also a small bar with only a few seats where you can enjoy your aperitif, just have a glass of wine, or even enjoy a full dinner menu. Food and wine pairing have been made into an art form at Vinkkeli, so you’re definitely in good hands if you let the staff pick the wines.
Vinkkeli Wine List
The high-quality wine list contains all of the classic regions and producers you can imagine, and many of the wines are served by the glass. Remember to ask for whatever daily specials they might have in the cellar; bottles in small quantities from smaller producers.
