Spotlight on Berlin: Weinerei

In a city where beer is available around the clock- a lot of the time being cheaper than water, it’s nice to take a break from Germany’s favourite brews to indulge in another favourite beverage of mine, wine. After hearing stories about a cozy wine bar with a unique twist, curiosity finally got the better of me.

Nestled in one of Berlin’s more affluent districts Weinerei is without doubt a novel concept for a wine bar. We were initially greeted by a friendly, imperial, moustached gentleman who gave us the low down on how everything worked to get us started on our merry way. The simple premise goes like this - you pay 2euro for an empty glass, upon taking this glass you are welcome to sample any- or all- of the wines lined up on the counter. Once you find one that takes your fancy you then fill your glass with your preferred choice. And repeat. For as many times as you wish throughout the evening. Only after you’ve consumed your weight in wine and are ready to stumble to the nearest U-Bahn station to take you home do you pay and by pay I mean putting into a jar, situated by the exit, the equivalent of however much you think you consumed. So just like Berlin’s public transport authority this wine bar has based their payment system on the premise of an honour-box.

Pure genius I hear you say? I wholeheartedly agree.

Starting every day after 8pm the buffet style wine offerings include red, white, rose and prosecco, each made of a mix of locally produced specialities and other European varietals including Spanish and Italian wines. This is the part where I admit that nothing comes close to New Zealand’s array of top notch tipples but I’m also not one to turn down our foreign counterparts. The selection of reds were definitely a clear winner for me, one in particular had a delicious hint of Vanilla that I’ve been thinking about since.

You could also be mistaken for thinking you are in a bar the likes of which you would expect to find in Ponsonby or Kingsland. The intimate interior is filled with inviting retro furniture, clusters of oversized light bulb pendant lights and a large 4ft glass bottle suspended from the ceiling.

While this busy little bar is filled with locals and tourists alike, Weinerei imbues the city’s signature chilled vibe and is the perfect place to relax and drink with friends on a cold night. Upon exiting I got the distinct impression this would not be my last appearance at this Berlin gem.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to
    get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet
    savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any recommendations? Cheers!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine
    if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Good blog!

    Em sua sustentação oral, o causídico argumentou que o propósito da censura é sempre o mesmo; o de “controlar o que os cidadãos podem ver e saber como forma de determinar o que os cidadãos devem pensar”. viagra generic walmart We often see that women who have not dealt with emotions from their past, be it from childhood or within their relationships, will find that these unresolved issues emerge and express, sometimes in new or surprising ways.
