Guides To The Melbourne Wine Store & Wine Courses

The MelbWinestore

The Wine store Melbourne is one of Australia’s premier wine shops. They are known for their selection of top quality wines and offer various physical locations throughout Melbourne to serve customers, corporate organizations and events all year round. In 2011, TMWS decided to take their physical shop online with an online presence.

Buy Wine Online is an established online store offering wine from around the globe. With various filters, you can refine your search based on region, sub-region and price point.

This family-run shop in South Yarra boasts an extensive selection of wines and liquors. Plus, they provide top-notch tasting service.

Wine Courses

We offer a selection of wine courses, from beginner to advanced level. Each class features high-end table wines with an emphasis on food pairing. All classes are led by experienced educator Matthew Hansen and showcase bench-mark wines selected specifically for their quality and value for money.

We also offer the WSET Level 1 Award in Wine for those just beginning their wine education journey and want a gentle introduction into the world of wine. This course covers the main types and styles through sight, smell and taste and equips students with the basic knowledge to describe wines accurately as well as make food-and-wine pairings.

Wine Shop

Melbourne has long had a passion for wine bars. Legendary establishments like Jimmy Watson’s and Florentine Cellar Bar remain, but now there is an emerging wave of bottle shop-bar hybrids that combine European and Japanese bar tropes with an easygoing Australian attitude.

North Fitzroy’s Public Wine Shop Melbourne is an example of this classic European aesthetic, boasting bustling footpath tables, rich timbers and a wall-to-wall display of bottles.

Wine Centre & WSET

The Wine Centre & WSET, situated in Melbourne’s famed shopping precinct, has earned itself an enviable reputation for wine and spirit education and is widely recognized as one of the most reliable and prestigious institutions worldwide. Established in 1982, their school boasts an enviable international reputation that continues to this day.

They offer a selection of courses, including the WSET Level 3 Award in Wine. This qualification is ideal for those with more knowledge about wines who wish to delve deeper into them. It also serves as prerequisite for taking on the more complex WSET Level 4 (Diploma) course.

Fiona Lim and Tom O’Mara gave up their corporate jobs to open Wine Republic – a bottle shop with something for everyone. Stocking 2000 different wine options daily along with hundreds of artisan spirits and 800 craft beers, Wine Republic truly offers something special for everyone.

On Friday nights, they offer tastings and host meet-the-maker events. Northcote store is known for its hop focus, so be sure to stop in if you’re a beer connoisseur. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable; eager to assist in finding your ideal brew.
