Who are we?
Upstairs Wines is a little project we have been working on to show off wines from around the world. Part website, part tasting room, part cellar door. It's an ever evolving collection of some of the best vino we have come across in our adventures.
For the past 12 years we have been importing wines from around the world for some of Australia's best restaurants. If you have found this site it's probably because you just googled the wine you just tried. This is the only place you can find it. Whilst supplying restaurants is our main gig we wanted a place to show off the wines to everyone. Our idea was to create a city cellar door. Somewhere low key where members and friends can come to try the wines. Whilst building the space (it's a secret location - but we will give you directions if you ask nicely) we refered to it as upstairs as it is literally upstairs but the name stuck and this website was born.
We focus on wines from producers with a passion for every aspect of what’s in the bottle. We use the word sustainable as it implies a broad commitment to making good wine. We look for wineries that limit use of synthetic chemicals, additions and fining products. We look for wines that are a true reflection of time, place and people and if we don’t love it, we don’t sell it. There are wines from Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia and Australia with more being sourced everyday.
If you have any questions about the wines please do not hesitate to contact us as wine is our life and we love to talk about it!
Cheers and hopefully join you for a tasting soon!
