Isn’t wine lovely sometimes? After our Melbourne Open House day rambles we headed to the City Wine Shop (think effortless French feeling sophistication – not brown paper bags). It met all our criteria for a MOH drink stop (none of us had been before, seats, alcohol) and was on our way home – perfect.


We bypassed the lovely outdoor seating area looking across spring to Parliament House and gardens. We went straight through the front room lined with wood, bar and a whole wall of wine (with one of those cute attached to the shelf ladder thingeys). We found a space on the one long communal table in the back room and settled down.


The bar itself is really long and narrow and split into a front and back room. In the back room there was a lot to look at from the wine boxes stacked everywhere, the giant ye olde map of France, the chalk menu wall and a wine closet that it took as few moments to look at the menus.


We all selected a white (Pinot Gris I believe) and splurged on some polenta chips. Yum! The menu actually looked pretty good and I loved how casual the place felt – toally transported to a provincial French wine shop. The wine came out (after a bit of a time) perfectly chilled and was a sublime end to a lovely day.


The City Wine Shop sells wine and champagne by the bottle and is open late – so if you are ever in need of a last minute bottle or after somewhere to have a nice drink…you might want to try here.
