Urban cellar door experience opens in Sydney

handpickedHandpicked Wines, a young, dynamic winery has opened a cellar door in Chippendale’s vibrant Kensington Street, bringing its distinctive global wine experience to the heart of Sydney.

The Handpicked Cellar Door allows guests to experience wines from around Australia and the world in one central place, with the winery not limiting itself to one location or style, but instead, ‘hand picking’ the world’s best regions and varietals.

In line with the winery’s ethos, the exquisitely designed exposed-brick warehouse – formerly a CUB brewery workshop over 30sqm – offers a different approach to the traditional cellar door experience in both look and attitude and provides a destination for both Sydneysiders and visitors wanting to understand the glorious world of wine, winemaking and simply the good times that come with enjoying it.

The Handpicked Cellar Door aims to educate as well as entertain visitors with interactive iPads, a series of tastings at the sensory bar, and for those wanting a more in-depth approach, 30-minute tutored tastings at the Experience Room.

Wine adventurers can also taste unfinished wines from the several wine tanks that line the space, plus order small batch wines on tap, the best way to discover new project wines from the pedigreed team of Handpicked winemakers.

As many as 30 Handpicked wines, including single vineyard wines, are available at any one time to order by the glass or bottle, plus the wine can also be purchased to take away and enjoyed at nearby restaurants or at home. Shoppers can also jump online anytime and have wine delivered anywhere in the Sydney metro area within three hours.

Handpicked Wines winemaker, Peter Dillon, says the cellar door is the perfect place for visitors to taste curated wines from around Australia and the world, without having to leave the city.

“We are excited to be bringing a diverse range of vineyards and wineries into a space, which is more than just a bricks and mortar cellar door but rather a chance to bring premium wines from around the globe, together under the one roof,” he said.
