always aotearoa.
celebrating the best of new zealand made.

we created this space to showcase the best of local. we are proud of how new zealand produces world leading products. we realise every business gets a choice where to purchase from.


we support artisans, winemakers, beer brewers, cheesemongers, bakers, knife makers, designers & manufacturers based in aotearoa / new zealand. we are not the experts - we buy from them.
family businesses, friends & professionals with boutique companies who specialise. what a joy it is to hear each story and pass it on.


under the same roof, at the other end of our wine bar is DUAL - New Zealand's only denim brand - made 800m from our high street address. come have a wine, then try something on, and take something away with you that is also uniquely New Zealand - fashion and wine... two good things of awesome.














food as an accompaniment to great wine.
platters sourced from bakers, artisans & specialist butchers.

local smoked salmon and mackerel. air dried & cured meats. grain free crackers. artisan bread. new zealand boutique cheese. duck liver & chicken pate. all from award winners. all local.

designed to accompany a new zealand wine or craft beer. provided for you to enjoy. we avoid the supermarket, not only because we want to serve you things that are often hard to find and are not mass produced, but because we know it's better for you. we hope you can appreciate the difference.

it’s not cheap to buy the best, but it is the best thing to do...

divine wine & great craft beer.
little known gems and the classics from around new zealand.

when you visit a wine bar, you often hope to try something you may not have tried before. you also hope to see your favourite wine amongst the list. we’ve tried to balance our wine list to include new zealand’s favourite wineries - as well as challenging you to go beyond your comfort zone and see if you can add to your fave list.

below is our by the glass list, it’s only a fraction of the wine we have available - come and tell us what you like and see if we may already have it on our bottle list. we’ve also included our current craft beer list. we are always searching for new ones to add. there’s also a great selection of new zealand gin and other liqueurs.
