Ambient and appetizing: New wine bar offers an evening of wine and tapas 

by Shellie Boudreau

Sometimes you need a night out, with a glass of wine or two, and good company to wrap your head around the world today.  

In a city, like Aalborg, with lively restaurants to select from, finding a venue with ambience where you can relax for a good evening is something we love to do, and naturally, we have the inside scoop on a new place to go.

On Strandvejen 11, the wine bar called 7773 Vinbar, which opened only a few weeks ago, offers a very special wine from Hungary paired with select tapas.

The owner, Erik Kovacs, is sharing part of his culture from his homeland with Aalborg. When you visit the wine bar, you can also experience and learn more about Hungary simply by absorbing the characteristics which make this wine bar one of a kind. 

Why not enjoy delicious wine and food while you fill your curious mind about the world around you? We can never be wise enough.  

Three types of tapas

During our visit where we tried the Wine and Tapas (Vin og Tapas) offer, we journeyed into a “discovery of exciting flavours from Hungary” as the wine bar writes on their website. 

You choose whether the taste experience should be four glasses of white, red, sparkling, or a mixture.

In addition, a tapas menu is specially paired with the wine of your preference (white, red or sparkling). 

During our visit, we leaned towards red and white and enjoyed tapas that complemented our preferences.

Our tapas included a selection of Danablu, goat cheese, mozzarella, three types of ham, capers, olives, walnuts, and grapes.

In addition, we received our own little bread basket with butter, which made many of us very happy.

“Now there was no reason to fight,” chuckled one of our colleagues.

It is possibly the simplicity of the choices. Still, the selection of cheese, meat, white bread and bite-sized bitter flavor bombs paired with the right wine created an ambience that nurtured engaging conversation and relaxation. 

The wine we were served had spring notes that suited the warm April day. Yes, we know that today may be replaced by rain and grey skies.

We sipped a white wine, Cserszegi Fuszeres, which gave off a scent and embodied elderflower. We also tried a red wine from one of Hungary’s best-known wine producers, Bock – that had a zing of sour cherry.

The waiter shared a little story about the flavors, nuances, and geography with each glass, which was welcomed since we had little knowledge of Hungary.

Free wine every Friday

The plan is that the wine bar will at one point offer a special type of Hungarian tapas paired with wine – but when?

Erik Kovacs cannot yet reveal, but luckily there is other news that can be revealed.

Namely that 7773 Vinbar will offer all their guests a free glass of wine every Friday.

The wine is selected from the wine bar and changes every Friday.

7773 Vinbar is open on Tuesdays to Thursdays from 16:00 – 23:00 and from 16:00 to midnight, Fridays to Sundays. Closed on Mondays.
