Wine culture can be tricky to penetrate, especially for the untrained or new-to-the-game. If you’re looking for a place to start, though, you’d have trouble finding anywhere better than Vinhanen. Frequented by wine aficionados, novices and casual partakers alike, vine-elitism and forced convention are passed over in favor of a relaxed and open-minded atmosphere here—so don’t feel like you need take a whiff and pretend you can smell tannins and liquorice if you can’t.
Prices lean towards supermarket while the stock screams quality and depth, and if you feel a little too spoilt for choice, the well-versed staff are more than happy to partner you up with a tipple to suit your preference. They stock returnable bottles too, so if you’re short for time or stopping in on the way home, you can grab a vintage to go. It’d be a shame not to stick around and delve deep into one of their mean plates of charcuterie whilst you sip away though right? Damn right.
