Trust Me on the Wine

Berlin didn’t stop surprising me during the trip. One place was Weinerei, a wine house that don’t have waiters, bartenders, or anything similar, there is no bill or check, they have food, at least 12 different types of wine, you get there give them two euros to get a glass, and then basically help yourself. At the end you decide how much do you think you need to pay and put it in a big jar they have in the counter. It’s all based on a trust system yes an honour code, not Barney’s bro code.

The Place

Sounds like a fairy tale I know, it exists and it is in Berlin, the place was full, and every minute I sat there with my wine glass, people came and left, ate and drank, and at the end paid, small or big contribution who knows, does it work? I guess for the patrons don’t know for the owners. I tell you what, I know at least a couple cities where that place will be belly up in one day, but not in Berlin.

One of many Wines

The place is a gem, true Berliners, a few tourists, young and trendy clientele, with a soft drum and bass lounge music and dim lights.

Wine reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Dinner Party”.

George: All right we got the wine. Aren't we lucky? We got wine. Imagine if we didn't bring wine. We'd be shunned by society. Outcasts! WHERE'S YOUR WINE? GET OUT!
