In the News
Welcome to DeWandelaar,
We’re a new shop in Amsterdam’s Oud Zuid district, and from it we aim to present the best of New Zealand produce and lifestyle to The Netherlands. Authenticity is our mission – you’ll only find 100% pure, and 100% honest products in our shop, each with its’ own story to tell, and many from small, artisan producers in the remotest parts of New Zealand.
Created by real New Zealanders, our tearoom is modeled on a typical one you’d find in 1900′s New Zealand. A good, old-fashioned “cuppa” tea or coffee with a typical New Zealand cake, pastry or pie made from classic recipes developed during our grandparent’s time waits for you there. Some classics have been updated with some healthier ingredients that don’t compromise taste!
As wine-lovers who have found it difficult to locate the best New Zealand wines in The Netherlands, we have a large assortment of New Zealand wine; from an everyday €8.95 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, to a unique and internationally acclaimed and rare red wine from Waiheke Island opened during special occassions. All DeWandelaar wines can be traced to real wine farmers, we don’t stock marketing brands claiming to be real New Zealand wines.
Our wine cellar is something different, a place where visitors sit alongside a table made from 7000-year-old swamp Kauri – a native New Zealand tree buried and preserved beneath the ground. With enough room to fit 20 people comfortably, this is where we host our wine tastings and private dinners, an experience as close as possible to visiting the actual cellar door thousands of miles away. In the summertime our wine cellar is complemented by our private wine garden with barbecue!
