Welcome to the Wine Bar
We specialize in wines made by artisan growers, many of whom farm and produce their wine organically, biodynamically and ‘naturally’ (i.e. with low to very low physical and chemical intervention in the cellar). These wines are brimming with vitality, energy and drinkability. They are not made to a formula in order to please ‘the market’ – they are completely themselves, unique expressions of a specific place, vintage and culture.
As specialist independent, we excel both at finding these small batch wines as well as on our customer service ethos. We want you to have a great experience whether you pop in for a glass or a case of wine and we always endeavour to find something that suits your pocket, palate, mood and occasion.

“Belstar Prosecco N.V.”, Valdobbiadene, Italy (Glera) €7.50/€35.00
Proper Prosecco! Not like a lot of the insipid, semi-sweet dross served in many a wine-bar, We love this bottle fermented (Champagne method) fizz and it’s going down a storm. More expensive than some Prosecco out there, worth it? You bet!
Percheron 2016, Swartland, South Africa (Chenin Blanc, Viognier) €6.50/€26.00
Vibrant and aromatic with generous fresh apricot, nectarine, and hints of passion fruit on the nose. A creamy palate with fresh fruit flavours, freshly picked fleshy apricot with hints guava.
Domaine De Menard Cuvee Marine 2015, Gascony, France ( Colombard, Gros Mensang, Sauvignon Blanc) €6.50/€26.00
Great purity of fruit with as racy mineral, sea infused edge. Very aromatic, with scents of wild flowers, pear drop and honeysuckle; the palate is crisp and gives an instant impression of freshness.
Domaine Billard, Hautes-Cotes de Beaune, La Justice, 2015, Burgundy, France (Chardonnay) €7.50/€30.00
The three-hectare vineyard has the place name “lieu dit” of La Justice. The soil is very chalky and the land has good drainage and exposure. The grapes are fermented in barrel and then matured for ten months “sur lie” before bottling. The resulting wine is rich, structured with a whisper of elegance.
Gaba do Xil 2015, Valdorras, Galacia, Spain (Godello) €7.50/€30.00
Broad on the palate yet fresh and mineral driven, this is deliciously typical of the Godello grape from Spain. Don’t let the stylish packaging fool you – the content of this bottle is equally well made. With orchard fruits delivering in lush swathes, it’s the stealy/saline notes and chalky texture that keeps this complex and refreshing food wine on its feet.
Vincent Lacour Les Chilloux, 2015, Touraine (Sauvignon Blanc) €8.00/€32.00
A Sancerre-like gem! Dry, fresh, and lively with an extremely aromatic nose. Notes of stone fruit, citrus and a touch of green pepper.
Suertes del Marques, Trenzado, Valle de la Orotava, Tenerife, 2014 (Listan Bianco, Pedro Ximenez) €9.50/€38.00
A fascinating find from Tenerife. About 90% Listan Bianco, blended with Pedro Ximenez and other local varieties, 40% of which had a month of skin contact. It has aromas of flint, gun smoke, preserved lemon and nuts. So fresh and sapid on the nose. Real body with a chewy touch of tannin.
Joh. Jos. Prum, Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett 2014, Mosel, Germany (Riesling) €10.00/€40.00
This delivers a tell-tale nose of green apple, greengage, and passion fruit paired with some almond, brown sugar, yellow peach and apricot. The wine dances on the palate and leaves a complex mouth feel of crispness. The acidity and herbal notes give a feeling of an off-dry conclusion.
Prieuréde Montézargues Tavel 2014, Gard, France (Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette, Syrah, Mourvédre, Carignan, Bourboulenc) €6.50/€26.00
In addition to crispness and structure, this wine provides a luscious mouthfeel due to its body being filler than most Rosés. A combination of strawberry and citrus flavours that are deliciously refreshing.
La Perra Gorda 2015, Bierzo, Spain (Mencia) €6.60/€26.00
Hailing from an organic vineyard in Bierzo (albeit labeled Vino de la Tierra) using a blend of local Mencia alongside some Cabernet, and Merlot. Dense purple in colour, aromas of red fruits and violets. A purely fruit-driven style
Commando G, La Bruja Avera 2013, Madrid, Spain (Grenache) €7/€28.00
If you’re sceptical of Grenache, this wine will win you over, if you’re a lover of said grape; this wine is certainly for you. Typically blue fruited, slick and upfront with a rewarding lick of tannin to keep it fresh and food friendly.
Finca Los Primos 2015, San Rafael, Argentino (Malbec) €7.50/€30.00
An expression of Malbec whose minimal oak contact allows the sweet spice of vanilla to carry the weight of the dark fruit character- notes of ripe plum persists. A generous full-bodied mouthfeel marks a distinctively sustained finish.
DeMartino, Gallardia 2014, Secano Interior, Chile (Cinsault) €8/€34.00
A juicy vibrant red fruit driven wine- think red currants, cranberries, and pomegranate seeds with just a sufficient edge of black spice.
Guttarolo, Lamie Delle Vigne 2015, Puglia, Italy (Primitivo) 8.50/€34.00
LdV is Primitivo in its fullest and most explicit expression of a truly wonderful varietal; full of sun-kissed fruits and salted liquorice. Fleshy and profoundly joy inducing.
Fleurie Du Grappin 2015, Beaujolais, France (Gamay) €8.50/€34.00
Seriously delicious and definitely a second bottle kinda wine! Light to mid-weight reds that dance across your tongue and all too quickly vanishes. Pinot Noir or even cool climate syrah lovers should check this out.
Mas Coutelou ‘On Peut Pas Vraiment Dire Que’ 2015, Languedoc-Roussillon, France (Syrah) €10.00/€40.00
Lovely mineral nose, smoky, elegant and aromatic with red cherry. The palate is incredibly fresh with fine mineral notes.
