Just around the corner of Museumplein, the big square surrounded by the main museums and the Concertgebouw, you will find Wine Supply. It is very straightforward in the presentation of their 100 wines presented on industry-like warehouse shelves, the cardboard boxes on the ground, the bottles with information and price presented on eye level. From sparkling wines, white, rose towards the red wines, life is made simple here.
The people serving you in this shop are real connoisseurs! And they let you taste the wine that can turn into a Magical Mystery Tour. So I start with a fresh Kirchpoint Grüner Veltliner 2014 (Austria). Next the Terras do Pó Branco 2014 (Portugal), a gentle white wine. From Sicily the Cusumano Grillo Shamaris 2013, a hidden gem. For the red wine I tasted the Bierzo El Pájaro Rojo 2014 (Portugal), the Costieres de Nimes 2012 (France) and the Cusumano Nero d’Avola 2014 (9,95) from Sicily. The latter is good value for money, dark red, hints of cherry and blackberries, tobacco and a bit spicy. Your best companion with lamb, cheeses and sausages.
Service is outstanding here with orders delivered at your home within 4 hours, no extra charge when you order 24 bottles or over €175. The wines are chilled and they sell plastic glasses! Payment is only possible with an ATM card and pin number. So when your head is full of music and art and you feel like drinking wine, go to Wine Supply!
