I found the place by accident. Its a vine basement with fantastic interioi design - while brick walls, some small niches where you can sit and beautiful green yard. The vine is very good there. Maybe the choice is not that huge but for sure you can find something for yourself there. When it comes to prices, you can't complain... More

A very nice place for a glass (or two :-)) of wine in every season of the year. A friend showed it to us, luckily - I don't think I would find it by chance because it's pretty well hidden underground. The location has its pros - there are no tourists, however, I fully recommend reservation because it can be... More

We stumbled upon this gem accidentally when we followed another couple down some steps. What we found below was a delightful surprise. After entering a series of small, cozy rooms (where we look forward to enjoying a meal by the fireside this winter) we were greeted by an extremely friendly staff at the self service bar. We got our wine... More

This is a small weinkontor hidden away in Bockenheimer area about 30 minutes walk west of downtown Frankfurt. You can take a train to Bockenheimer Depot and then walk 6-7 minutes to get there as well. They have great prices for wine and other drinks and side dishes. Perfect for a cozy evening in a courtyard covered with greens setting.

What an amazing place! A friend of mine invited me there and unless you know the place you'd never find it. It's a basement wine bar where they sell wine by the glass. It's a lovely setting, dimmed light, a very comfy atmosphere. I'm always curious about German red wines, because they are either a hit or miss. They have... More

Visited this little bar over the Easter break. The wine offering is quite simple but the selections won't break the bank and will give you a good taste of the region. Food is quite good and ideal for sharing. Worth a trip

This place is a gem in Frankfurt. Hidden behind the first row of houses on Schloßstrasse, you walk down some stairs and find yourself in a surprisingly airy space with rustic interior design. Expect lots of candles and a great atmosphere. Their wines are excellent, and snacks very tasty. I've spend many great evenings here over the years.

This is a place you go to taste different wines, but it has nothing of the wine club snobbery, but it’s convivial and basic style wine in generous 2 decilitre glasses. Small dishes served.

Varied offerings but I stayed close to home and tried a Riesling and blancs de noir from the Rhine region; both good but the latter having a bit more depth / spice. Didn't try the nice looking food offerings.

I recommend this place for it's great location and lovely atmosphere. You won't find it easily from the street, it's between a Greek restaurant and a police station, there is just a small sign at the entry and you have to walk to the backyard and then down some stairs. The bar area has little niches, some tables but also... More
