Welcome to Wine Experience Amsterdam

Every Saturday and Sunday you can taste special wines, perfectly matching cheeses and other fine pairings within walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station. During the tasting we will take you on a journey from old Amsterdam through the whole world from the brand new IJcatcher pavilion.

We make a small historical journey through Amsterdam and we tell you about inns, wine barrels that were used as 'suyphuys' (booze house) and the lively wine and cheese trade.

But, as befits the Dutch commercial spirit, the journey continues through Europe and even around the world, from California and Japan and from India and Indonesia to Croatia and Georgia.

The tasting is packed with historical facts about Amsterdam, fun facts about wine and you will learn how to pair wine and food.



A surprising, tasty and entertaining journey of discovery
