The Best Places for Wine Lovers in Brisbane

Alice Duffield

Brisbane isn’t short on great bars. If you’re a wine lover though, you might be after somewhere with staff that are a little more knowledgeable and a wine list with some stronger contenders – we’ve got the best spots for you.

Ploughman Bar

Bar, Pub Grub

Nestled in Brisbane’s inner northern suburb of Alderley, Ploughman is a gem of a bar. The owners are always friendly and knowledgeable about every drop they serve. It’s the perfect venue to chat over a casual glass of wine, house-made pickles and cheese board.

Gerard’s Bar

Bar, Spanish

A few steps from the reputable Gerard’s Bistro on the beautiful James Street is the equally fabulous Gerard’s Bar. The bar serves Spanish cured meats and share plates, alongside a carefully curated wine and beer list. The staff will happily talk you through everything on their menu.

The Gresham

Bar, Australian

Think vintage decor, comfortable chesterfields and a cosy vibe and you’ve got The Gresham. Set in a heritage-listed building, staff at The Gresham know their wine and will set you up with the perfect glass in the comfort of a gorgeous leather lounge.


Bar, Wine

Maker is a hole-in-the-wall set up, but it packs a punch with its gorgeous design and superb wine list. They are also known for a unique take on their charcuterie, serving delicious goodies like venison, buffalo and wild boar.

Proud Henry

Wine Bar, Wine

Proud Henry is known for stocking unique international wines that are completely new to Brisbane’s wine scene. Carefully curated, this bar has a wine list with only 12 beauties on it. If you’re a gin lover, this is definitely the place for you too.

Bar, American

Bloodhound Bar is a great destination for craft beer and wine lovers. In the heart of the valley, you’ll find a well selected wine list and a delicious bar menu.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
