Britannia’s Vinbaren (The Wine Bar) is a living cellar. A bar and three wine tasting rooms, lined by 8,000 of the world’s best bottles. To step down into this hallowed space is to immerse yourself in the broadest selection of wines found anywhere in Norway, accompanied by the finest cheese and cured meats. Served by some of the greatest sommeliers in the region. You also have the opportunity to do a wine tasting if you really want to experience the bar's wine selection.

Britannia scoured producers from all over the world, acquiring bottles not on the market anywhere else and secured exclusive vintages. Vinbaren will be as good as anyone else on French, Spanish and Italian wines, but better on other wine-producing countries like Portugal, Lebanon, USA, South Africa et al. The Vinbaren team has acquired wines from legendary names and also hosts wine tasting masterclasses with visiting world-famous producers.
