The idea was pretty simple, we wanted to bring a considered bottle shop experience to the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
The aim was to create a specialised wine store that also features an extensive range of craft beer and spirits, and offer a curated, customer service focussed option in an area dominated by big box retail and dated, loveless strip mall bottle shops.
We take pride in what we stock and who we work with. If we won't drink it then we we won't sell it, it's as simple as that. No matter the style, producer or price point, if you see it on our shelves or online store it means we like it, we think it's well made and we think it's worth your time and money.
The other foundation point for our little shop is we have chosen to only support Australian made and independently owned. Australia is producing truly exceptional drinks and these are what we want to showcase. There's no imports, no corporate booze, no third level brands from multinationals, just exceptional Australian-made wine, beer, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks from the best family owned producers we can find.
With that said, thank you for taking the time to visit our little patch of drinking paradise and thank you for your support.
Joyce and Tristan
