With a Glass of Red

By Amy Bryzgel. 18.08.2008

These days it seems that wine bars are all the rage in Riga.


 Another one has opened up in one of the city’s more exclusive neighborhoods, yet it offers economy, value and quality that contrast the price tags of the surrounding real estate! Vīna Studija (The Wine Studio) combines a bar, wine shop, and school all in one.
Despite its posh appearance, the wine shop offers bottles starting from €4, with monthly specials that provide options for less than you might find at the local supermarket. And there are all sorts of other special deals. With any receipt from the bar you receive a 10 percent discount on your purchase in the shop.
The wine bar offers a selection from over 500 wines available in the shop, as well as some snacks – salads, cheese plates – most of which won’t run you more than €7. Although this might not be the place that you come to soak up the atmosphere, as the bar area is rather compact, it is the place to come for degustation evenings where you can sample a selection of wines from specific regions. Vīna Studija is a great new locale for both wine aficionado and novice alike!
