Whether you're tucking into our hearty meatballs or savoring our delicate house-cured salmon, we have a wine that pairs perfectly. From the citrusy and floral notes of our white wines, perfect for light seafood dishes, to the bold and full-bodied reds, which stand up to our heartier meat dishes, our wine list is as much a journey through the vineyards as our menu is a tour of Nordic cuisine. So pull up a chair, raise a glass, and join us for a culinary adventure that's a feast for all the senses.
