Zoldering is a new wine hotspot in Amsterdam, open since 2019 and a real treat for wine lovers. It occupies a beautifully converted Amsterdam building, which makes the most of its high ceilings, space and light. Although it is foremost a restaurant, you can always drop by early or late evening for just a glass of wine by the bar.
The menu is concise and often exceptional. There’s a lightness of touch to the modern European cooking, and a refreshing lack of pretension or unnecessary complexity. There are no huge tasting menus or filigree presentations – just top-class ingredients treated with respect.

Zoldering Wine List
The genius of Zoldering’s wine list is that it covers so many bases. That shouldn’t come as a surprise considering that it’s the creation of a team including seasoned sommelier Job Seuren, who spent years helping to build the reputation of the seminal Cafe de Klepel. If you’re looking for an exceptionally curated list of classics (especially strong on Burgundy, but also very convincing with Bordeaux and Barolo), you won’t be disappointed. But, the adventurer or the lover of minimal intervention styles will also find a lot to satisfy their needs.
What’s also refreshing is that the dozen or more wines by the glass cover multiple quality and price levels – not just the basics. The list has thoughtfully been divided into a compact two-page selection of the highlights for those who don’t wish to wade through everything, and then there’s the complete 800 bottle-strong tome for those of a more anal disposition! Needless to say, there's plenty of expert advice available from Job and his team.
