Over the past year, wine Veteran Stephen Harris has been changing the way Rushcutters Bay, Potts Point, Darling Point, Elizabeth Bay and Darlinghurst residents are able to take advantage of what has been described as “the best bottle shop I have ever seen” by many local residents & visitors.After only one year of trading, the store was awarded runner-up for Best Bottle Shop in Australia at the 2019 ALIA Awards (Australian Liquor Industry Awards). Bayswater Fine Wines has given the community something to be proud of with its extensive range of local and international, spirits, beers, ciders and wines including some exclusive offerings sourced from all corners of the globe. With wines ranging from $5 - $500, the stylishly fitted out store is sure to deliver.
The design team consisted of world-renowned architect, author & TV personality Joe Snell and interior designer Chrissy Ynfante. Together, they have delivered a timeless masterpiece that has lifted the benchmark of beverage retail in this country. Features such as the floor to ceiling library-style wooden wine cabinets, stunning French oak counter, wine tasting room and, the showpiece 750 champagne flute chandelier are perfectly balanced in the split-level store.
