Summer Wine Bar at Woodstockholm

Saturday early evening, the weather is typical for Swedish summer. Warm, but rainy. We have to make a run for it if we want to be sheltered from the storm. We find our way to the wine bar on Moseback torg. It has been set up for the summer in the furniture store of Woodstockholm. It is dark and cozy inside. Just one long table with candles and a few random people sitting enjoying a glass of wine. We are greeted by the bartender with a wide smile. I feel we have come to the right place.

I think I have mentioned Woodstockholm a few times. It is a furniture store and restaurant, and now in the summer also a wine bar. The bar has been set up in the section that is normally the furniture boutique. The space is small, but in efficient use. There is one long table with chairs on both sides. The sommelier walk around and there is a kitchen in the back. The kitchen makes a set of small plates for being served at the wine bar. Perhaps they even help out with some cold dishes for the restaurant. I don’t think there is any cooking done there in the back room.

The house champagne that night was a Laherte Blanc de Blancs. Even though I have had it before, I am pleased with the grower choice. Later I learn that the wine list changes quite often, including the house champagne. M takes a glass of Chardonnay from Jura. It is so good with notes of vanilla and butter. The wine has clearly been in oak, but not for too long. The oaky flavors are quite delicate. The white is so good that I negotiate a half/half deal with M (I get half of his and he gets half of mine), which s nothing unusual when we go out for wine.

The second round is a tougher choice: Should we go for the Mencia from Bierzo (made by a lady that has worked for Domaine Romanee Conti), the bourgogne blanc, a spanish white from Galicia or the sommelier recommended charismatic white Chateauneufdupape. We stick with whites: Galicia and Chateauneufdupape, and luckily get to have a small taste of the Mencia later. We also order some small snacks: whipped pork (Genius!) and cow tartar with chorizo. Both taste very good, but the whipped pork is the real star. Just the concept of it is awesome.

It has stopped raining (a long while ago) and it is time for us to move on. The bill is very reasonable. None of the wines were really expensive (100-150 sek a glass), and the food cost around 65 each dish. This is Stockholm, so that is what you pay. I feel we have received value for our money. We will come again. The summer wine bar is an experiment Woodstockholm are running, and I hope it will stay.

      3. Hi there, I am new to Stockholm as I used to live in London for over 10 years and so far I am struggling with the wine scene in Stockholm, natural wines being my preference, perhaps you could also read my blog I have a few thoughts there on stockholm, a place I recommend for wine though is Babette in Stockholm, and the restaurant of Bar Hommage , very good wine there. What about you ? what’s your story ? 🙂

      4. Hi there, I have also moved to Sweden from London (I am originally from Finland), and I miss the wine scene of a free market :-). My favorite wine spots are perhaps Hornstulls Bodega, 19 Glass, Gaston and Burgundy. We also arrange tastings for the wines that we import, so I will send you an invite when we have the next one :-).

      5. Oh hi there, sorry I missed your message, as I was travelling and I am not an expert on this blog thing ..I like reading you though.. we are back in stockholm since 2 days and it is quite gloomy ..but first thing we did was to go to WoodStockhom for a glass of wine or two 🙂 we live in Soder , what about you ? still not interested to follow my blog too ? I don’t have any followers lol , just not good at marketing it and using it mainly to remember the nice things that come across my life in terms of food , wine and hotels something too . So I understand you work in the wine business ! I have a very good friend here who is also in the wine business and importing primary natural wines, we could meet when you are free, I always say “we” because I moved here for my partner, I am British-Tunisian so I will need some time to get used to this new City I guess . Anyway, looking forward to your next event then 🙂 ciao , Molka
