The Hotel's Prized Collection

Britannia’s Vinbaren (The Wine Bar) is a living cellar. A bar and three 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, and served by some of the greatest sommeliers in the region. 

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. Ulf has acquired wines from legendary names and there will be wine tasting masterclasses from world-famous producers.
