Hangzhou, known for its fine silk, UNESCO world heritage site West Lake, and its association with Alibaba, is also a worthy destination for wine crowds.

Vin de Jean Herni

This natural wine bar nestled in a quiet and old alleyway is a new entrant to the city’s wine scene but surely the most talked about so far among serious wine lovers and adventurous drinkers who are looking beyond Bordeaux or Burgundy.

The brainchild of a female wine enthusiast Yue Yue, the wine bar curates and serves only natural wines, close to 200 labels in total. One can find some delicious orange wines from Sicily’s Alessandro Viola winery using indigenous Sinfonia di Grillo grape, the whole range of wines from cult natural wine brand Gut Oggau from Austria and musician Brendan Tracey’s wine range. A small food menu packed with tapas and comfort dishes are great to aborb the alcohol. Guests can also bring home their loved bottles at the shop or from their WeChat mini program online.

More information on the wine bar and their wine range can be found through their official WeChat account and their mini program by searching “Vin de JeanHerni”.

Address: Jianheng lane No. 2, Wushan Road, Hangzhou
