A LIVING CELLAR
8,000 Bottles of the World’s Best
Britannia’s Vinbaren (The Wine Bar) is a living cellar. A bar and three wine tasting rooms, lined by 8,000 of the world’s best bottles. To step down into this hallowed space is to immerse yourself in the broadest selection of wines found anywhere in Norway, accompanied by the finest cheese and cured meats. Served by some of the greatest sommeliers in the region. Here lies the opportunity to taste some of Britannia Hotel’s finest wines.
In order to establish the collection, Britannia scoured producers from all over the world, acquiring bottles not on the market anywhere else and securing exclusive vintages. Vinbaren has an excellent selection of French, Spanish and Italian wines, and an even more impressive array from other wine-producing countries like Portugal, Lebanon, USA, and South Africa.
The Vinbaren team has acquired wines from legendary names and also hosts wine tasting masterclasses with visiting world-famous producers, as well as regular jazz and tasting events.
It is possible hire Vinbaren (or a section of the bar) for a private wine tasting event, under the expert supervision of wine bar manager Thomas Andersen and his team.
