Seddon Wine Store is a study in how service can completely override price. Despite their close proximity to two other bottle shops, one of which prides itself on its bargain bin wine, Mr Baklover drops into Seddon Wine Store regularly for their fabulous range, personal service and the occasional natter.
The best bit is you can sit in and have either a glass of wine from an interesting selection, or get a bottle off the shelf with a corkage charge. Along with that there's a small menu of good quality drinking snacks, turning Seddon Wine Store into a great little local watering hole.
I had a lovely, quite unusual white grape variety that was so little known, I have gone and forgotten it. Curses - I do try to write notes, but sometimes I get distracted by, well, life!
Grazing plate, $18
This was a lovely little sandbox to play in - mild manchego cheese with quince paste, lovely, vinegary little mushrooms, gorgeous terrine with plump pistachios throughout, bitey salami and loads of good bread to smoosh it all on. If you want something heartier, they also do cassoulet. Seddon Wine Store also sell various cheeses, posh anchovies and other goodies to take home.
I know we all want a bar where we can get properly sozzled until 1 am, but from Thursday to Saturday Seddon Wine Store is open till 10 pm - plenty of time to put a rosy glow in your cheeks.
