This cafe and bar on top of the water tower serves coffee, fresh pastries and berry wines from the local winery. It is well worth a visit, both for the views and the wines.

We visited Viinitorni (Winetower) twice, and such a delight! Great views, good wines, groovy music and relaxed and serviceminded staff. Pastries etc. really tasty. Genuine, yet cosmopolitan. I do understand people arrive in a taxi, one would like to stay over the sunset and enjoy the local wines made on berries., not to forget the whiskey from the Valamo Monastery...I... More

When travelling through the world, you may find one or the other interesting premise. This time - in the quite remote Ilomantsi - we enjoyed berry wines from a quite elevated (50+ meters?) position. Unfortunately the weather was not so good, so we were located inside. However, on good days, the panorama (just thinking of a perfect sunset) must be... More

We went there for morning coffee. The place was beautiful! Cheap priced. It was a shame that we visited there in morningtime and weren't able to taste alkoholic drinks because we had to drive home. There's a lift but still a couple of stairs to climb so might be difficult for people with wheelchair.

Great place and views! What to say more, wine and good people. Extraordinally place, you have to see that place in the middle of the forest and near Russia.

This place is just utterly charming. Situated on top of a water tower and converted into a wine bar/cafe it serves the produce of Finland's oldest winery, PeltoHermanni. The wines and liquers made of local berries are complemented by light little snacks, all home made and very tasty. You can either walk up the steps (I can't remember how many,... More
