What a find! Just up the street from our hotel, Sydney Harbour Marriott at Circular Quay (see my review, "Location, location, location"). We popped in to buy a couple bottles of wine to carry aboard our cruise ship, bound for New Zealand. Us: "Do you have any New Zealand wines?" Helpful AUSTRALIAN Wine Centre clerk (paraphrasing): "Oh. You're cutting me to the core, mate! Yes, we do have a few New Zealand wines, but why not buy Australian?" And off we went on a delightful conversation! Having just toured two wineries in the Hunter Valley, we asked about them. "What did you think of those wines?" the clerk asked craftily. Weren't impressed, we said, affecting much more knowledge of wines than we actually have. "I don't know why your shore excursion would have taken you there," the clerk said. "There are much better wineries in the Hunter Valley." And he proceeded to introduce us to them. We left with a bottle of New Zealand wine, a bottle of Australian wine and a determination to write this review when we got home.

I had a hard time looking for a wine shop. I am staying at the Rocks area and wanted some wine for when I get back to my hotel to try. I went to another shop close to Ash Street and the choices there were mostly above AUD100 per bottle and it seems they target foreign wine from Italy and France. Their Australian wine was more expensive than foreign wine. Glad I found this place finally after a week in Sydney as am now being introduced to great Australian Wine by a helpful gentlemen. I do not get this. This is Australia, a wine producing country. And it seems getting an Australian wine is harder and more expensive most times compared to Italian and French wine be it in a shop or a restaurant.

Warren, Thank you for taking the time to review us - it is greatly appreciated, and I am glad that you enjoyed your selection of wines from us. You are correct about the state of Aussie wine in Sydney. While there are some great independent retailers and restaurants which focus on Australian wines, many have an exhaustive collection of foreign wines. As a city, we seem to have never supported our wine industry the way that Melbourne, Perth or Adelaide do. But I am glad you found us and that we were able to help you. I look forward to seeing you again when you're next in town! Many thanks, Australian Wine Centre

The store had a great selection of wine and a small selection of cigars. I was looking to purchase a few cigars for my stay and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

By pure luck, we found the Australian Wine Centre yesterday and spent an invaluable half hour there with Zach. Not only did we leave with two excellent new wines to try, but he gave us great information for our week ahead in Barossa and McLaren Vale. Fabulous resource for both wine and information. Thanks Zach!
