Where it all began

The KASK Story

Like every bottle of wine, KASK has its own story. An idea born of holiday dreaming that became a reality: friends in San Sebastián, drunk on wine, tapas and sunshine, thinking how great it would be to open our own small bar…spending evenings with neighbours and visitors trying new wines, chatting with the team, meeting new friends. We opened our doors to our little slice of heaven in late 2019.

Lockdown happened six months later. We kept KASK alive through hosting online and virtual wine and cheese tastings and sending our At-Home DIY Tasting Kits out around the country. This experience showed us that there was a thirst (no pun intended) for wines with stories; for different grapes from more diverse regions; and for being pushed outside of comfort zones. Which is why our By The Glass list changes each week, why we host Tastings every week, why we always offer small tasters at the bar before you decide on your glass, and why we are constantly bringing new wines on to our Bottle List

But it’s not just wine. We have a small but perfectly formed (and constantly changing) list of beers, both on draft and in cans/bottles from Bristol’s amazing range of breweries, and also love featuring South West ciders. And although we don’t have a kitchen, our food menu is also constantly changing and although you may just come in for a snack, we’re pretty sure you’ll be filling yourself up with cheeses, charcuteries, breads, olives and all the good stuff that goes with the drinks.

Wines With Stories

The wines we love and serve are from small, independent producers who tend to see themselves as farmers rather than winemakers. They farm sustainably (the vast majority organically), using natural solutions not chemicals.

Some adopt biodynamic practices and many create their wines with minimal intervention, adding and taking away as little as possible – believing this to be the purest expression of the grape(s).

We like wines that tell stories of the country, region, microclimate, vineyard and grower. Grape varieties you may never have heard of from countries you didn’t know made great wine, alongside unique expressions of the crowd-pleasers.

We don’t like chemicals, pesticides, additives, computerised technologies and petri-dishes. Bland industrial wines made to a checklist determined by what buyers think customers want.

We choose the produce of farmers who work with nature, using their hands, experience, skill, judgment and a little bit of hope to create the best possible glass of wine they can make.

Say yes to delicious, well-made, surprising and memorable.

Say No To Shit Wine.

Our current drinks menus

Not Wine

Bristol’s incredible selection of breweries and the South West’s cider orchards are too good to ignore, so our weekly menu includes a good and ever-changing selection of both, including Lost and Grounded, Left Handed Giant, Wiper + True, New Bristol Brewery, Find + Foster, and Wilding.

We bloody love Cheese. Which is handy because one of our favourite cheesemakers lives just around the corner and the rest of our selection of British cheese is curated by a cheesemonger just a hop, skip and jump away from us on the city’s harbourside. Each week these plates, along with French, Italian and Spanish cheeses and charcuteries, are paired with our wine menu to enhance the flavours of both the food and the wine.

Also expect to find anchovies and boquerones, burrata with lemon oil and mozzarella with red pepper tapenade, as well as the most more-ish of bar snacks including habas fritas, marcona almonds, truffled nuts and Spanish olives.
