Best wine bars to share a bottle in Gothenburg

Wine bars are a sanctuary for many people in Gothenburg looking to unwind after a stressful day at work or to set themselves up for dinner. However, if you haven’t been to Sweden, you should be warned: wine can be expensive. So if you want to enjoy wine, it makes sense to go to the best wine bars in Gothenburg and make the most of it.


Olssons Vin

Located on trendy Tredje Långgatan, Olssons Vin has an enviable wine list. And wine is undoubtedly the main event here. While there is food available: cheeses, cold meats, gourmet pizza, you probably wouldn’t come here for the food.

Björns Bar

Opened by michelin star chef Björn Persson, right beneath his restaurant KOKA, Björns Bar is a highly popular wine bar in Gothenburg. Along with 25 wines to order by the glass, you can enjoy small dishes made from the finest seasonal ingredients. An intimate space, they do not take bookings. So arrive early or have patience!


This restaurant has a good reputation for its food but, you’re very welcome to drop-in if you just fancy a drink. The downside is that Somm has less of “bar feel” but with over 30 different wines to enjoy by the glass, you won’t mind too much! It’s quite small, so best to arrive early or late.

Forssén & Öbergs

I love sitting in the courtyard of this champagne bar, it gives me the feeling of being in France (but maybe that’s just me!). Forssén & Öbergsgot have a wide selection of meats and cheeses, as well as a three-course set menu, to compliment your wine.

Enoteca Maglia

This Italian-inspired restaurant has a delicatessen shop to go with its superb wine menu. Boasting Sweden’s widest range of Italian wine, Enoteca Maglia even has its own wine club. With regular meetings to taste specially selected wines, you can even go on trips to Italy and enjoy exclusive tours of vineyards.

Juan Font

Bringing a little bit of the Basque Country and Pyrenees to Gothenburg, Juan Font is a small trendy wine bar with a great selection of French and Spanish wines. It is warm, vibrant and the sharing menus are delicious!
