Raise a glass to Wineism, a wine shop meets uber cool bar that is set to become your new favourite place for a tipple. Housed in a cool and modern converted industrial building in the heart of Albion, it promised to deliver an elevated wine experience worthy of the wine it houses. Wineism, which comes to us celebrated sommelier Ian Trinkle is in partnership with wife Liz Trinkle and colleague Aaron Mullan, is not a typical bar, nor is it an average bottle shop. Rather it’s a house of wines from around the world, handpicked for Brisbane’s wine appreciators and available for online purchase, home delivery, curbside pick-up and sipping, and purchase in-store. Even better, over the coming weeks, the team is developing its snack offerings to accompany sips as well as winemaker appearances and internationally recognised courses for budding sommeliers and enthusiasts.
