The Wine Emporium
Tucked away in Newstead, The Wine Emporium boasts a serious collection of wines, beers and liquors.
Stepping foot into this boutique wine store you will be greeted with floor to ceiling rows of bottles lining the walls. Their collection ranges from the common to the obscure; you’ll spy anything from local crafts like Green Beacon and vintage reds from 1985 to rare Japanese whisky.
We all know the dinner party conundrum of selecting a bottle—choosing is notoriously difficult so you often stick to what you know. But The Wine Emporium can help you find the perfect drop for any occasion while keeping to your exact price point. Even if it’s a budget rosé to sip on the couch—behind the counter you’ll find the approachable and knowledgeable staff who clearly know their stuff. From a sommelier who trained in Bordeaux, to a wine promoter who was knighted by the French government for her work. We’ll take their advice any day.
With complimentary guided tastings every Saturday as well as regular special events and wine dinners, there’s plenty of opportunity to meet the makers and try before you buy. Whether you’re a casual-sipper, budding sommelier or a wine collector, The Wine Emporium has something for everyone.
