Upstairs Wines is a boutique wine store curated by husband and wife wine people, Dave and Michelle. The name came from their tiny tasting room on top of a speakeasy in Bondi. To get an invite to the tasting, you had to know who to text. The reply would be, “just come upstairs”. The name stuck. They’re no longer upstairs in the figurative sense, but have grown and evolved into a collection of wine store/tasting rooms/come hang out with us and talk about wine spaces.
If you are on the Central Coast of NSW please drop in and visit at our stores in Long Jetty and Ettalong. If you can’t make it in person this site is for you.
This site is the online persona of what Upstairs aims to achieve in our physical spaces. The site is filled with wines from producers with a passion for every aspect of what’s in the bottle. They use the word “sustainable” over other buzzwords as it implies a broader commitment to making good wine. They look for small wineries that limit their use of synthetic chemicals, additions and fining products. They seek wines that are a true reflection of time, place and people and if they don’t love it, they don’t sell it.
Every bottle has passed the pleasure test and can be found only on select restaurant lists or the shelves of boutique bottle shops. But here, they come direct from the source.
