Jordaan, Amsterdam –
Small and sophisticated, Vyne is a low-key, modern haven for Amsterdam’s true wine enthusiasts – and the owners have chosen to preserve its peaceful, exclusive ambiance by depending on word of mouth as their only advertising.
High-tech, temperature-controlled refrigerators display over three hundred different wines in this elegant space, whose light oak walls and floors create a sleek and stylish atmosphere for the upscale clientele.
Although Vyne attracts a sizable crowd of connoisseurs, wine novices are equally welcome as the informed staff is always ready to educate visitors on any aspect of wine and wine production.
Patrons are also encouraged to enjoy wine in their own personal ways, whether by sharing a bottle with friends, experimenting with a trio of samplers, or ordering a series of half glasses that allow exploration of a wider variety of vintages.
Those looking for a wine experience – rather than just a wine bar – will find it at Vyne.
Well-dressed and knowledgeable wine lovers, occasional celebrities, and anyone interested in learning more about wine appreciation, 20s to 30s.
Smooth, jazzy tunes.
Selection of salty and sweet appetizers. Group tastings available by prior arrangement. The most expensive bottle is the famous Pétrus from Bordeaux (€1600).
Food €2.50–€5+. Wine €4–€15/glass, champagne €12.50+/glass or €75–€450/bottle.
Fridays and Saturdays before and after dinner are busiest.
The restaurant Café Envy next door is a popular fine-dining choice for Vyne’s patrons.
