“When we opened it was a crazy idea to propose tasting the best wines by the glass”

The wine bar / Max Bordeaux “If you’re going to buy a Ferrari, you want to take it for a test drive first,” says Henning Thoresen, the Norwegian wine merchant and owner of Max Bordeaux Wine Gallery & Cellar. He’s talking about how he came up with the concept for this popular wine bar, which has some of the finest wines in the region, including those from first- and second-growth estates like Château Margaux. Thanks to some clever tech – Enomatic wine dispensers that control the temperature and exposure to air of an open bottle – and an inclusive attitude, anyone can try them. A 25ml tasting glass will set you back anything from just €1 to a costly €30 (NOK285). “When we opened in 2009 it was
a crazy idea to have a place that proposed tasting the best wines by the glass,” says Max Bordeaux oenologist and manager Ralitsa Todorieva. “Henning Thoresen had a vision for the future.”
