On our last night in Amsterdam (New Year's vacation 2013/2014), we visited this strongly recommended wine bar. We were pleasantly greeted by Marc, the manager, who readily granted our wish to taste several wines. We were served both by Marc and his assistant Marco, who freely shared their deep knowledge of wines and wine making. Their recommendations, ranging from wines from France, South Africa, Germany and Italy, were simply superb. Sipping those great wines, surrounded by soft sounds of nice music, we were treated to elaborately prepared hors d'oeuvres. We really wanted to visit SoVine again during our stay but needed to leave Amsterdam the next day. Please make sure to make reservations if you plan to visit on weekends.

GREAT personal tasting with owner operator MARC the other evening. Sensational PINOTAGE from his SAfrican vineyards. Generous, knowledgeable & entertaining, he made our evening, AND recommended a seriously good restaurant for us AND rang for reservations! A wonderful ambassador for Amsterdam hospitality. Lovely selection of interesting International wines presented with passion. GO to SoVine on the restaurant row of Amstelveensweg # 152 to be precise.

We arrived here wanting to order a nice bottle if red between friends. After waiting 20 mins they took our order... Then returned wanting to be reminded.... Then returned to say they didn't have it. We then choose another bottle, they returned again to say they didn't have it but offered us another bottle at the same price... Despite the fact it was a cheaper bottle. ???? Huh????
We then ordered by the glass... After waiting 25 minutes we left.
We don't understand if this is a wine bar how come the waiters don't know about wine and how come it seems to be so difficult to order a glass of wine. We were inside the place for almost an hour. We never tasted a drop!

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.
