Make a bee-line here for a tinny of Moritz and some of Sydney's best wine service
The Wine Library just goes from strength to strength. It’s continually staffed with wine-lovers who keep your glass filled and the music up nice and loud, all the while pumping out all manner of deliciousness from the kitchen. The narrow room tends to fill up pretty fast no matter what day of the week it is, and it stays filled. Bar stools are at a premium and you’ll want to be fearless when it comes to giving – and taking – an elbow or two in the ribs. But that’s cool – we’ll take anything you can throw at us if it means getting a little closer to a glass of lambrusco di sorbara from Emilia Romagna (only $12!) It’s a brilliant wine to start the evening with, but there again it’s also the sort of thing you can drink for your entire evening. There’s a whole side of the menu devoted to Black Market Sake – two sake nuts who have been taking over Sydney with their imports – and if you’re an orange or biodynamic wine fan, you’ve come to the right place. This is a sexy list filled with things you’ll want to try. You might even just roll the dice and let your sommelier decide. For just $12, they’ll pour you a glass that’s likely mysterious, probably freaky, and all but guaranteed to be something you haven’t tried. Hold onto your wine glasses, Sydney. Things are about to get excitingly weird.
