Stockholm has great restaurants which pair delicious food with an great wine list, but drinking wine outside of meals, as is so often done in Southern Europe, is less common, and it can be difficult to find a glass of good wine on its own. However, wine bars are gaining in popularity and there are now some very fine establishments for the wine aficionados among us. Here we explore the very best the city has to offer.
Also in Gamla Stan, Corvina Enoteca serves an extensive wine selection focusing on Southern Europe and also food to go with it, from homemade fennel salami and mushroom risotto to the inevitable cheese platter. All of this in an interior created by popular Swedish designer Jon Eliason. But the focus is indubitably on the wines. Over 50 different ones are available by the glass, including Delamotte champagne. There is an especially high number of Italian bottles, from all wine making regions, making it the perfect setting to (re)discover that country’s viticulture.

Part of the sumptuous restaurant Eriks Gondolen in Södermalms, Eriks Vinbar is a true institution among Swedish wine enthusiasts. Because of the link with the restaurant, the wine list includes some incredible names like Château Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, Veuve Clicquot, and more. The wine list is gigantic, with a good selection available by the glass. To assist with tasting, there is a smaller glass size (five centilitres), which give visitors the opportunity to taste as many wines as possible without breaking the bank.
