The Winos winelist is a small bound book and a labour of love by the owner, who is clearly an enthusiast. The holding costs of this vast collection must be substantial and wines are priced accordingly. At Wino's you will find available significant wines from every worthwhile Margaret River winery. Surprisingly, the whites are served over-chilled - albeit a common mistake across Australia. At these prices though, one might expect better !
Great 'tapas-style' food from the Chef from San Francisco - creative small highly tasty serves well presented.
Winos is justifiably renowned in Margaret River - if you decide to go there, be sensible - ignore the prices, kick back and have a highly memorable experience : Akin to Tetsuya's, it's one of those " Hang-the-Expence" places

Thanks for taking the time to review us. The wine list is a labor of love. The wines listed are ones we simply like to drink and we just hope everyone else agrees. The whole place is a bit like that. Price wise we are on a par with capital cities, and Margaret River is an expensive place. We try our best to keep it all reasonable.
The whites are probably a little over chilled. We don't really have heaps of refrigeration space so they all tend be be dialed in at the same temperature. I'd love to have separate refrigeration for each variety, but that will have to wait until I win the lottery.
Thanks for the "Tetsuya" reference. I'm pretty sure I can only dream of being anywhere near as good as him. It's an amazing experience. We're simply trying to be the best Wino's we can be.
Cheers and hope to see you back in the region some time in the future
