Laurent grapes, this wine comes from the Burgenland region of Austria.
With tastes of cherry and plum, this natural wine
is best shared by the bottle as it certainly special…

Harteneck Chasselas Vollmond
This organic and natural wine from Baden, Markgräflerland in Germany won Gold at the International Organic Wine Awards 2019.

Like Tequila….but a whole lot more (and better!). We bring you…. Alacrán Auténtico Joven
Smokey, with a hint of dried citrus and fresh oregano, this
Mezcal is one to travel across town for – and it’s even better when combined
with fresh lime juice, agave, and a dash of smoked salt to create our Mezcal
sour. As you can guess, we fell in love with it upon first taste (or with Myke,
Made in Oaxaca, Mexico, the ‘Espadin’ agave hearts are

your taste-buds buzzing.

Along with the renovations, we also fancied a few new spirits for the bar, along with our new house Pils from Berliner Berg (more on that later…). Our first new spirit we bring to you…

We’ve been at Wein Salon for a year! Wow…we have met so many
wonderful people in our first year, served a varied range of drinks and become
part of a community – and our lives are richer for this. We would like to
personally thank all our delightful customers who have graced us with their
presence and custom over the past year.
To celebrate out first year opening we have a party planned on Saturday 24th August, featuring people who have performed at our bar during our time here, including the incredible Growler (who helped us to celebrate International Women’s Day) and Cam Casey, a fellow Brit who came to Berlin last year and is now firmly established on the poetry scene of this beautifully creative city.
So, Saturday 24th August – add it to your
calendar, make your plans to visit us, and we look forward to seeing all of you
for an evening of celebrations!
Oh, and have you seen the newly renovated bar room – designed by a Robert Bothma and installed by one of our kindest customers (thank you Thomas!).
It seems apt that our first weekend with the renovated bar (have you seen it yet?), and a new website, we also celebrate Pride in Berlin – the CSD March. An inclusive event celebrating love and acceptance – something we believe is crucial in order to have a peaceful, loving society. At Wein Salon we are also an inclusive place, where people can come and enjoy themselves without fear of being judged or stigmatised. So, if you believe in acceptance and love for all, we welcome you to celebrate this on Saturday at our Pride at Wein Salon event, where we shall be serving specially designed cocktails for one weekend only.

To be a same-sex couple owning a bar, in partnership in business and life, is a joy. We are lucky to live in a country with people that accept our relationship, and encourage us to be proud of our life. Many people in the world right now do not have the same joy in their lives, and indeed fear for their lives. We might have more rights now in Germany, but across the world more and more people are losing their rights to be who they want to be and love who they want to love.
