“MAGNIFICENT WINEBAR!!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

Sovine’s is the place to go for excellent wine. For those who love wine this is a must visit.
The place is chic and the owners are very friendly. Marc not only knows wine but is truly passionate about wine. You will not be disappointed.

“Visited twice for delicious south african wine .. food looked great”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

Our friend who is living in Amsterdam at the moment located this bar close to where they are living, so we visited it - twice. The welcome is fantastic, the knowledge and enthusiasm from Marc who seemed to be able to select perfect wine choices for our varied tastes, was amazing. His own vineyard produces a delicious cab franc, and the blended Idiom wines are a good find as well. There was some great food coming out, and a local told me he ate there regularly because it was so good! If you are in the area it is well worth a visit.

“Passion for wine!”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

This is a very trendy, up-class wine bar with a selection of about a 150 wines from all over the world. The owner, Marc Scholls has such a passion for wine, and cannot wait sharing it with his customers. He is extremely knowledgble on wines, and can tell you stories about all the wines you will taste. His partner Sandra make sure all the attention to detail are taken care of. They also have a very nice menu, we enjoyed the meat trio, but Marc changes his menus daily, and make sure only the finest ingredients are used. A visit to the winebar is not just enjoyable for it's good wines, classy atmosphere and delicious food, but also sharing Marc and Sandra's passion!
