Romanian Wine & Dine Pop-Up in Berlin - Chapter 3
A new dining experience in Berlin: Romanian-Spanish fusion cuisine with double wine pairing!
2 Wine & Dine Series are in the books and we are ready for a new adventure and a new Chef. We cannot wait to welcome Chef Radu Dumitrescu in Berlin! You can usually find his creations in Bucharest, at his own restaurant: Voilà Bistro. He loves both Spanish and Romanian cuisines, which is why we got the extra push to create a fusion menu and pairing for this chapter.
What is included in the price:
3.5-hour event hosted by WSET 3 certified wine expert Ramona Enache-Lorenz and Chef Radu Dumitrescu;
6 course-meal Romanian - Spanish fusion;
double wine pairing - 2 wines paired with each course: one Romanian, and one Spanish
- Where? The Makery Straßburger Str. 37 10405 Berlin
- When? 19:30. Please be on time.
- How many seats? 20-seat max. capacity
- IMPORTANT: this event is a Pop-UP and will happen only 6 times. For food allergies/intolerances, please let us know in advance.
Radu started his career in the kitchen 13 years ago, in Madrid and, after a few years, moved back to Romania where he now owns his own restaurant and is the co-owner of a wine bar. He was also part of the jury during the latest season of Master Chef.
Throughout the years, Radu has developed a unique yet simple cooking philosophy, using local and seasonal ingredients, and he is currently charming all his guests with it. He gets inspiration from traveling, meeting new people and exploring their cultures.
Who's pouring wine?
Ramona Enache-Lorenz founded Pointer in 2014. Her love for wine started in the vineyard of her grandfather. She learned from him how to care for the vines and how to make wine. Spending so much time amongst the wine barrels, Ramona further developed her taste and preferences during her travels and became a WSET Level 3 certified sommelier in 2023.
In Ramona's opinion, Romanian wine has great unlocked potential and deserves to be better known around the world. Romanian food is a topic that has been coming up at almost every meal with international friends for the past 10 years and it is finally time to bring that to Berlin.
Ramona doesn’t only love Romanian wine. She spent October 2023 in Rioja and Ribera del Duero and absorbed as much Tempranillo, Viura and other local varieties as she could and will bring to the table some of her favourite Spanish and Romanian sips.
What kind of magic table set-up is this?
We will be using Romanian hand-made ceramic objects, designed and produced by Atelier Lutfain, a ceramic studio based in Bucharest and run by designer and fellow architect Andreea Chiser. Candle holders belong to Radu Abraham, a Romanian designer based in Cluj, Romania, whose work we have been admiring for years. Last but not least, wood planks are signed by Atelier Vast, a woodcraft studio run by one of our oldest friends and fellow architect, Stefan Nechita. We are so happy to have them all on our pop-up dining table!

Our preference for a vegetarian menu is connected to our lifestyle and beliefs. Even though we still like meat, we believe there is an incredible variety of nutrients and flavors present in vegetarian dishes and that regardless of your dietary choices, consuming from local and trustworthy supply chains should be a priority. It is also the best time of the year to enjoy all the fresh fruit and vegetables, so why not enjoy it while it lasts?
In the process of creating the menu and planning the events, we highly value all the ingredients and make sure we use as much as we can from every vegetable or fruit. We are big fans of fixed menus and limited seating because this helps the staff plan the quantities accurately and avoid waste. Whatever is left after the event will be either donated or eaten by us, so stick around in case you haven’t had enough.
For any inquiries regarding our events, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to answer your questions and find together the best solution for your gift idea.
