8GREENBOTTLES: WINE SHOP AND WEBSITE FOR HANDPICKED NATURAL WINES

If you aren’t already a fan of natural wine, a trip to 8greenbottles will definitely make you a believer. With names like SuperglitzerPet-Nat and Raw Rosé their wines are just what we’re after. All the wines are unfiltered and thus vegan, are produced organically, and are sulfur-free yet full of flavor. With backgrounds in philosophy and e-commerce, owners Ramona and Philipp aren’t sommeliers but take a unique approach to finding the perfect wine for your palate. They developed their own criteria for various wines and analyzed flavors and chemical profiles to compare different grape varieties. They’ve created an algorithm for their online shop that detects your preferences to help you find the kind of flavors you’re looking for. You can order your wine online, and after sampling and rating them, you’ll get personalized recommendations. As of April 2019, there’s also an 8greenbottles shop in Prenzlauer Berg’s Helmholtzkiez, where you can also try the wines in-store. Best of all: you can take a glass out on the bench in front of the shop and pet Nelly, the owners’ pug. (Text: Katie Burton / Photos: Johanna Rademacher-Flesland)
