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’. The name of the wine bar ‘wild wine’ actually refers to a song written by Marek Grechuta, one of ‘Piwnica’s’ artists!
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’.
What to get at Dzikie Wino when gloomy weather comes? I have one answer for you – mulled wine season is upon us! While there’s a nostalgic pleasure of grabbing the overly-sweet-will-give-you-a-headache mulled wine at the Christmas market, visiting a nearby winery is an option that your taste buds will most certainly appreciate more! You can grab the wine to go and still enjoy the Christmassy atmosphere with a much better quality companion. Dzikie Wino Wine Bar offers both your classic mulled red wine and white option to mix it up. But if you ask me, when it comes to hot wines, white trumps red any time!
