Wineism is a wine store and bar for Albion, hosted by your friendly neighbourhood sommelier.

We wanted to create a place where connoisseurs and the curious alike could find exceptional wine along with expert advice. We offer a curated selection of wine from throughout Australia and around the world, all handpicked by sommelier Ian Trinkle.

We believe good things come from sharing knowledge, sharing a place to connect with friends and, of course, sharing great wine. This is a place to discover something new. The serious and the smashable; the classics and the cults; the ones to cellar and the ones to open tonight.

We’re here to help you explore, experience and savour. Wineism is our philosophy. We hope you’ll join us.
