It was truly a great experience of wine tasting right in the center of Amsterdam in the building of an old church. The location gives its special ambiance to the experience. Down in the cellar with dimmed lights and candles, surrounded by hundreds of wine bottles, which invite you to start the journey of wine tasting under the supervision of a sommelier Jose, a very knowledgeable sommelier from Argentina..He told us stories, answered all our 'newbies' questions. We really enjoyed this time and now we know how to choose a good wine!

Absolutely the best staff, dinning atmosphere and the food was out of this world superb!
Starting with the house Red wine and an appetizer of stuffed mushrooms, what a deliciously tasteful pairing.
Then on to the truffle pasta and the wife had delicious red snapper, finishing with the delicious tiramisu. Each exceeded expectations!!

We had an absolutely amazing evening at the wine cellar with Jose as an amazing sommelier. The atmosphere and the interior in combination with very good selected wines made the evening an unforgettable experience. We left with lots of wines and with a lot more knowledge about wines. Would recommend!!

Four of us enjoyed this private experience last week and I was annoyed at myself for not discovering it sooner! I’ve lived in Amsterdam over two years and somehow never knew there was a wine cellar and a guy like Jose in the bottom of that old church! This place is great for a small group of friends who love wine and want to learn something new from an Argentine who is so so so so passionate about wine, it’s infectious! Will be back with friends as and when they come to visit, this really is such a treat.

We were organizing a birthday surprise - wine tasting for our friend while in Amsterdam. We organized it before via Email, the "negotiations" were not really accommodating and flexible, but then again - its Amsterdam.
However, we expected much much more after all that had been promised and promoted to us and also after the price we had to pay. The sommelier was far from experienced and professional. We were a group of 6 but had to share the sommelier with two other groups, which had not been discussed, let alone agreed upon before. All in all it was a mere promotion and sales/event for the sommeliers own wine / winery, which is producing biological wines that are far from tasty, special, interesting or something else positive. The temperature of the Cava and whites was as well not as it should be. The nibbles were too simple, basically just thrown on a plate and one dish was some kind of supermarket-meat cake heated up in the microwave.
Our disappointment (especially considering the high costs!) was really big, especially after reading all the positive comments about this place.
We can just say that we would never recommend this place. Very bad experience, huge disappointment.

We booked our private tasting at the Wine Cellar based on reviews we had seen doing research before our trip. I won't lie, the morning of we were jet lagged and quite hungover from a late night in the red light district so getting to the wine cellar and thinking of drinking again was difficult (don't make our mistake)! But despite all of that we had the BEST time at the wine cellar with Jose!

Jose was so personable, knowledgeable and loved questions. We did the 4 wines with 4 tapas and let Jose do the choosing. The wine was fantastic and the tapas were just what we needed to come back to life. And let me tell you, the pours are not just tasters! You get almost a full glass of each wine! So worth it, make sure you book this in advance!

INCREDIBLE. Great people, wonderful experience, good information. Absolutely no regrets. The man who showed us the wine was very knowledgeable, and walked us through our first tasting. It was so much fun! And we also got free cheese!

Great tucked away spot with a big assortment of (mostly Argentinian) wines. Jose is super knowledgeable about wine and Amsterdam and made for a lovely evening.

I booked a deluxe wine tasting for my husband’s birthday. The reservation and booking via e mail went very smooth and Caroiline was very responsive. I did make sure that we had the place for ourselves as I did not want the 2 of us to end up with different bigger groups, that made the experience particularly pleasant.Jose was very nice and took the time to explain and answer all our questions. He is very knowledgeable and due the fact that he is a wine producer, he new very well the market and could also explain all the commercial aspects when it comes to wines.

Location is great,we ended up spending almost 3 hours at the wine tasting and had a great time thanks to Jose.
