Rødder & Vin A Quintessential Copenhagen Wine Shop

Rødder & Vin is a quintessential Copenhagen wine shop. It is a tiny store run by a passionate proprietor – Solfinn Danielsen. The selection is small, consisting of carefully selected producers and wines that Solfinn loves. Rødder & Vin is all about natural wines. That means that very little or nothing at all is added to the grape juice during the production. Certainly no chemicals and usually very little sulfite. Solfinn calls it “wine with an attitude.” He can tell you who made each of these bottles, about their philosophy and probably a drunken story or two from visiting their vineyard. No matter how short my visit to Copenhagen is, I have to drop by Solfinn and his store. This is where I purchase all the bottles I bring home to Norway (making sure to never exceed the quota, of course). If the weather allows, I love to bring a bottle to a picnic in one of the many beautiful parks of Copenhagen.

Pop-Up Events by Rødder & Vin

The wine store is actually just one of many projects of Solfinn and his good friend Esben Grundtvig. The duo creates pop-up events, runs a catering company, and sporadically hosts wine tastings. Their vision is to gather people around the table for that perfect atmosphere with local food and natural wine. I have yet to attend a pop-up dinner by Rødder & Vin in Copenhagen. Although, I did enjoy Solfinn’s cooking when he visited restaurant Smalhans in Oslo for a Sunday roast about two years ago. Luckily I am in Copenhagen for their next event on the 29th of November! In fact, the pop-up involves the entire team from Smalhans, who returns the favor and travels to Copenhagen for a very special event. Don’t miss it! Tickets can be purchased here.

On this particular visit to Rødder & Vin, Solfinn offered a tasting of a new Danish apple cider called Æblerov. The word means stealing apples from your neighbors’ gardens. As it would turn out this was not the last time I met with these bottles during my trip. We were offered Æblerov at restaurant Noma, Alchemist, and many other places later on. If you are in Copenhagen make sure to steer your bike in the direction of Ravnsborggade at Nørrebro and check out Rødder & Vin.
