Location is great - in the city centre, close to all attractions. The shop is a bit expensive but the staff has a great knowledge about wines and spirits.

Great small wine shop next to the Marriott. Good place to stop on your way to a cruise or stock your hotel room. They also ship to US. Mike is very knowledgable and extremely helpful. Good selection of both local and world wines.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
