This place was a bit of a surprise as I'd never heard of the label before despite having worked in the local wine industry. The atmosphere is ultra casual and the guy running it, Nathan, was very entertaining. The music was chilled and laid back...More

We got here about the 'penguin parade' and the place was buzzing with locals and regulars. Try their wine and talk to the owner/bartender/winemaker.

Last night I left The Bus Stop - Kakanui for my first venture into Oamaru to check out the night life. Armed with a local friend who knew the ropes, we ended up at Birdlands. A tiny wine bar located on Oamaru's infamous Victorian themed...More

Being 19 and not being hugely into clubs etc, I love the atmosphere Birdlands offers! Matt & Craig are always so friendly and welcoming. Divine Sauvignon Blanc, and their Riesling is very smooth too. Awesome wee spot in Oamaru to go socialise with many different...More

After wandering around the old warehouse artists studios, we were pleasantly surprised to see a wine shop open for tasting. This isn't really a wine shop, it's a winery with complete tastings and snacks to pair with. We had a great time with the "business"...More

This wine bar is the best! We got there at 4 when they opened. And we ended up staying for over FOUR hours! We had wine flights, beer and a cheese plate. They have a great local following! It was so awesome to see everyone...More

My partner and I went here and tried some different wines which were good. We then asked the owner about his own wines which we were able to try and were also amazing, along with the live jazz in the back room.

Oamaru's finest wine bar, featuring local and South Island wine for tasting, by the glass or bottle sales, and tasty local platters. Tucked away in Oamaru's Historic Precinct, a hidden gem with a relaxed atmosphere, showcasing a great selection of local wine without having to travel to the seperate wineries. Loved by locals!!
