5 x the best wine shops in Utrecht

Wine shop Libre Utrecht

Nieuwegracht 37 Werfkelder

Natural wines, biodynamic wines and sake: for that you have to descend the steep stairs to a wharf cellar on the Nieuwegracht. There you will find Canadian Nicholas de Grave, who can talk passionately about his products. He worked for years as a sommelier in restaurants in Canada, America and France and has focused exclusively on natural wine for about ten years.

The selection you will find here is composed by Zuiver Wijnen (which you know from restaurant Choux ) and Chevalier wines. We secretly hope that this also means that Choux will soon open a Utrecht branch of the restaurant…

Vleck wines

Blue Chapel Road 17

Amsterdammers may already know Vleck wines from the Eerste Helmersstraat, but there is also a nice shop in Utrecht. Here too it is Vin Naturel that strikes the clock. In their own words, “no funky stuff because it’s so hip”, but with a stable range. The gentlemen, for example, already have fifteen years of trial experience.

Also a tip: in Bowi von Onna’s nice book ‘ In the kitchen ‘ there is a tasty story by Vleck founder Michiel ter Heide that is very worthwhile.


Oudegracht 34

Sec’s wine shop also started in a wharf cellar (but on the other side of the city), now they have moved to a boutique on the Oudegracht. And so are the parties.

You will find two hundred wines here. These are all natural wines, which they import directly from the farmer. “The grape is respected and the winemaker must also receive that respect, you can taste that in the wine,” says Team Sec. There is also a tasting room (Sec Cave), a mobile bar that appears at events (Sec Bar Rouge) and a web shop.

Utah Winery

Behind the Cathedral 8

Utregs Wijnhuis is located behind the Dom, on the Domplein. In this characteristic building you will find wines from every continent, from predominantly small wineries and almost completely organic. The common denominator is that they all have a special story. Their mission: to make wine accessible to everyone. But also: “ Everything happens for a Riesling ”.

This means that you can not only get that exclusive wine here, but also cheaper bottles.

Leidsche Rhine Wine

Zandweg 111 (De Meern)

You will not only find those nice wine shops in the center of Utrecht; Leidsche Rijn new-build district also has such an address. Owner Eric Eimers started an online store for the neighborhood out of love for wine and scarcity in the private sector. A physical store was soon added in 2017.

And it is a serious wine shop, with over 400 wines from just about every wine country you can think of. Also pay attention to the large board with the wine(s) of the month and handwritten recommendations.
