One of my favourite restaurants in Tampere for wine & dine is definitely restaurant Winebridge. I also happen to know the lovely family who owns and runs it, and they definitely do it with dedication to excellent wine and food.
Winebridge offers pretty much the widest selection of wines in Tampere. I have had a chance to taste wines from countries I didn’t even know produce wines. The owner of the restaurant, Mr. Timo Jokinen, has over 30 years of experience in the wine industry. He is definitely is a man who knows about wines!
The food in Winebridge has a variety of tastes from Europe, South America and Asia, all very tasty and spicy, too. I have eaten there an excellent steak, as well as delicious Thai food, all served with matching wines. They also have a snack menu from which you can choose your favourites and enjoy them with matching wine.
I have also experienced many wine tastings and live music evenings at this restaurant. There are wine classes and tastings presented by the wine producers, many of them Timo’s friends from all over the world. Timo’s wife, Mrs. Pannee Jokinen, also organises cooking schools. This is a great experience for a group to enjoy the evening cooking together.
Winebridge is a vibrant place to drop in for a glass of wine or wine & dine all evening long. Definitely a place to sit down, relax and enjoy life.
