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!

Michael Upfold runs this tight little shop with the customer in mind. Helpful, knowledgeable and instructive. He asked me to describe the wine I was looking for and he came up with several selections that would qualify. He was so convincing that I reorganized my suitcase to carry two examples home. Now I am stuck with shipping by the case but even that still leaves the overall pricing less than in the US. Thanks Michael!

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.
