Natural wines in Berlin: The top spots in the capital city

Berlin and natural wine, that simply fits. The characteristics honest and authentic apply to the city just as well as to the natural grape juice. For some time now, natural wine has been experiencing a real hype that is increasingly taking over Berlin. No additives, no frills - natural wine does not try to pretend and comes into the glass as it is. And because Berlin also ascribes some of these qualities to itself, the density of bars and restaurants that serve natural wine is steadily increasing. At these places you can get the finest natural wine in Berlin.

Natural wine with neighborhood flair at Konträr

If you want to taste your way through a wide range of natural wine, Konträr is the right place for you. Located in the quiet Winskiez, the bar with neighborhood flair has been serving natural wines since 2021 and has since made a name for itself among connoisseurs and gourmets. The wine list offers a colorful spectrum of white, orange and red wines from Austria, Germany, Spain and France. If you're lucky, landlord Taran will give you an individual recommendation for your next bottle. This is best enjoyed with the homemade and probably best tapas in the district, which are served alongside natural wine at Konträr.

Refreshing Pet Nat, funky Riesling or silky Blaufränkisch are served at Rekorder in a harmonious ambience.
