Headed up by Mike Bennie and Lou Dowling, P&V Wine + Liquor Merchants' Newtown outpost is our forever go-to for delicious chilled reds, pet nats, orange wines, funky wines, and hard-to-find Aussie spirits that'll seriously level up your home-made Negroni game.
P&V's fresh Paddington spot is an expansion on the OG bottleshop, bringing the same edit of natural wine to the eastern suburbs, but also includes a courtyard wine bar where you're able to crack open that bottle you just bought for a small corkage fee.
There's also space for wine workshops and a French bistro called Porcine that's open Thursday through Sunday with chefs Nick Hill (The Old Fitz) and Henry Levy (Don Peppino's) in the kitchen. What a vibe.
