To celebrate this year's Global Tastings, we caught up with Primewine Bar owner Gustav Widdel, to find out a little bit more about his wine bar.
Tell us a little bit about your wine venue and the customers it attracts – where are you based? Do you specialise in a particular type of wine?
Gustav: Our restaurant is located in Östermalmstorg, Stockholm we mostly attract people living around in the are. We don't specialice in any wine type but try to have a broad selection of wine.
Why did you want to be a part of the Global Tastings this year, and what do you hope to achieve by running this two-week tasting in your venue?
G: We wanted to be apart so that we could help promote these good wines and of course its a good opportunity for us to show that Primewinebar is a good place to come and enjoy a glas of good wine since we have over 60 different that we offer by the glass.
Can you describe the wine scene in your city? Have you seen it change in recent years, or would you say it’s changing?
G: The interest in wine have increased a lot the past years, you can really tell with the amount of wine bars opening up.Finally, do you have any DWWA-winning wine recommendations you would like to share with your customers, and if so, why you have chosen these wines?
I would really recommend Sela from Bodegas Roda, a very nice modern Rioja and Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon for its balance and structure.
