In 2003 "Vyno Klubas" was the first specialized wine shop and tasting centre in Lithuania. In 2004 we started to import wines that were missing in our market: from Austria, Alsace, Germany, Bordeaux, Portugal, etc. In 2005 we commenced the first Lithuanian wine fair "Vyno Dienos" as well as launched a dedicated wine magazine "Vyno Žurnalas". In 2006 we opened the second retail shop and initiated formation of "Lithuanian Sommelier association". Together with it "Vyno Klubas" founded "Sommelier School" - the main wine education centre in Lithuania. 

Despite such a broad public activity, we continue to position ourselves as the main retailer of fine wines in Lithuania, offering the biggest collection of Bordeaux, Burgundian, Alsace, Loire Valley, Rioja, Tuscany, Port and Champagne wines. Our team of wine experts routinely holds wine tasting seminars all around Lithuania.
     

Restaurants and wine boutiques are supplied with our wines by "Duda ir kompanija Ltd".

Two our fine wine boutiques are located in Vilnius, Stumbru str. 15 and in Klaipėda, Liepu str. 20.

Here you will find a great variety of vintage
armagnacs, rare tequila, grappa, sake and the widest range of Bordeaux
in Lithuania - en primeur and old vintages, Grand Cru Classé and Petit
Chateaus. Wine tastings are organized on regular basis and also upon
request. Visit "Vyno klubas" for professional advice on wines and

spirits.

"Vyno klubas" is the main organisator of  the international wine fair of Lithuania "Vyno dienos".

 "Lithuanian sommelier asociation" and "Sommelier school" was also established by the iniciative of "Vyno klubas".

The wide selection of European and national food in the restaurant`s menu also features dishes of East Aukštaitija culinary heritage which are available from Thursday to Sunday. The "Žuvėdra" restaurant invites visitors to try potato sausage, stuffed potato dumplings (cepelinai), cheese with honey or cold beet soup made in the local tradition. On weekends you will be offered a speciality of local culinary heritage, the soup "poliauka", the recipe of which is borrowed from a local woman, Brone Kaulakyte-Bagdoniene. Herself, she got her lesson on how to cook it from her grandmother. The dish is supposed to be 150 years old or even older. Not every family could afford "poliauka" at that time. It was considered to be holiday`s meal of the middle and upper peasant class. The main ingredient was a pig`s trotter, which could well be substituted with a pig`s shoulder with offal. To make the soup more satisfying, housewives would add a little flour. Dried boletuses, which abound in this area in a good summer, were added for flavour. The soup is served with cold potatoes and considered fine when jelly-like and slightly bitter. Bon appetit!

In 2004, we joined the network of East Aukštaitija Regional Culinary Heritage. Our speciality included in the culinary heritage is a fish dish. Membership of this network is highly beneficial because it gives good publicity, and participation in seminars and discussions gives us opportunities to acquire experience, and learn new things which we can apply in our business: which is to popularise the traditional cuisine of the Zarasai region, to cherish its authenticity, and the way of life of the local residents.

People coming for amusements and holidays need food and drinks, and for this purpose we opened an inn. Having opened a mini bar, our expectations came true! Since the inn is not very spacious, we recommend our guests enjoy their food and drinks on our floating terrace on the River Šventoji.
