Dzikie Wino Wine Bar is located in one of Krakow’s most famous buildings – ‘Pod Baranami’ Palace by the main square. The palace is home to the most beloved art house cinema in town and a classic music pub and literary cabaret ‘Piwnica pod Baranami’. Keeping the tradition of the place, the name of the wine bar – ‘wild wine’ actually refers to a song written by Marek Grechuta, ‘Piwnica’s’ most renowned artist.
Dzikie Wino serves over 200 different wines, many coming from Polish vineyards. When you come up to the counter to place your order, make sure you ask about the wines. The staff will tell you all about it and the vineries they came from. You might notice that the wine bar uses quite an unusual wine classification. Instead of your regular ‘places of origin’ or ‘ wine vintage’ you will choose between ‘sunbathers’, ‘locals’, and ‘seducers’.
In springtime you can enjoy your glass of red outside in the palace’s courtyard. Soon enough the fountain will start to babble and the palace’s cinema will set up outdoor screenings accompanied by candles, lanterns, and flowers – making a place that is the beating heart of Cracow, the most peaceful and enchanting spot on Earth.
