This Pop-up Wine-shop might be just what you need for Christmas (or life)

Our friends at Baltazar opened up a pop-up wine-shop in Leiden and it’s just what we need!

It’s that time of the year again, Christmas is just around the corner and you can’t for the love of god decide on what to give your loved ones. Well, the answer is really simple (and delicious) – wine! I mean who doesn’t love it as a gift? You can drink it, it’s classy af and even if you don’t like it you can always give it away again when the next celebratory thing comes around. So as the saying goes: wine is fine (totally made that up just now)

Why Baltazar and their wines are an even better idea

And then there’s Baltazar wine! Two guys who happen to be best friends with this writer (yes this post is drenched in favoritism and alcoholism) run an awesome wine set-up called Baltazar. Their main idea is that you receive a box of 3 bottles of wine every month. The wines are always original, creative and delicious (vintage! pun intended!) and all from up-and-coming wine farmers. They make a nice little booklet to go along with it explaining everything without that wine-snobism you usually get.

And a Baltazar shop just opened up!

If you live in Leiden then you’re lucky (and about to get tipsy). Joost and Bas from Baltazar just opened up shop at the Korevaarstraat 8 in Leiden! You can get anything there: a wine-subscription, just a simple classy bottle for Christmas dinner, a box of wine and when you say the codeword ‘GEZELLIG WITH DUTCHREVIEW’  they will give you stuff to taste for free!

You don’t live in Leiden but still think that wine is a great present? Luckily you can order online as well! Visit the Baltazar wine shop online!
