Twenty-four years have passed since this wine shop slash restaurant opened in 1992. Seeing how fast Gyeongridan changes these days, it’s noteworthy that it’s stayed in the same place for such a long time. Since this place has been around as a wine shop and a bar for a long time, they have rather unfamiliar wines that are selected based on their expertise. Prices are very reasonable as well, allowing you to buy a bottle of good wine for about 10,000 won. Featuring about 1,500 kinds of wine, the owner of this special spot is Lee Jae-chun was even knighted in France for his contributions to the wine industry.
