When Vinoteket opened in 2018, it gained instant fame for three things: the ridiculously low-priced wine list, the innovative pizzas and the fact that former European Sommelier Championship winner Robert Lie was general manager. Today the wine prices are a bit more normal (albeit still cheap), the pizzas are as good as ever, and the wine list continues to evolve and grow. While the combination of great pizza and a kick-ass wine list has been seen before, it's unusual to find such a relaxed and friendly venue in an area of Oslo known just as much for its poor taste as it's wealth and lavish spending.
Located close to transport hub Solli Plass it's a perfect spot to drop by for a glass of wine and a bite to eat when you're on the go. However, you can just as easily spend the whole evening here enjoying their pizza tasting menu and wine pairing.
Vinoteket Wine List
The wine list has a good balance between different classic wine regions, with a few lesser-known and more unexpected wines thrown into the mix. While focusing on top producers, they haven't forgotten those of us who have to count our pennies at the end of the month, and there are moderately priced wines to be found regardless of style.
The by the glass list is decent, but this is a venue made for sharing bottles. Whether it's a top producer from Piemonte or Burgundy, grower champagne or something from their rich California segment, there's something for everyone.
Wine Tasting at Vinoteket
Vinoteket regularly holds wine tastings and other events at their club “Vinscenen”. Tickets can be bought through their website.
