VINKKELI

Helsinki

The three passionate owners share more than ten years’ history in Helsinki’s legendary restaurants. Their point of view is that classic cuisine, high quality ingredients and seasonal thinking are a starting point for a festive dinner, or just a quick lunch or supper. The name Vinkkeli (point of view or corner in Finnish) refers to the restaurant’s location in a historic corner building, but it also conveys the young owners’ idea of a classic, holistic restaurant experience at a particular intersection of place and time.

“I was amazed by the differences between the vintages of Tenuta Ca’ Bolani’s Aquilis, and by the freshness and complexity of the wines. This eye-opening vertical tasting proved that Sauvignons from Friuli are world-class and have excellent aging potential.”
