Lalla Rookh Wineslinger Top 50 best wine venues

Australia’s 50 best wine venues announced

Young Gun of Wine ​has revealed the 2019 ​Wineslinger ​Top 50 Venues list – a guide to the best wine venues across Australia right now.   

Wineslinger is an annual award for venues where wine is the hero, and where it’s served with a sense of fun and adventure.

A panel of 100 wine and hospitality experts – comprised of winemakers, sommeliers and journalists – has voted on the Top 50.

“This list provides the insider’s guide to the places that the toughest critics in wine choose to have a ripping time,” said Young Gun of Wine founder Rory Kent. 

“They’re restaurants, bars and pubs that bring energy, adventure and  approachability to wine enjoyment. These are places defined by fun, not formality. The size of your wine list isn’t what gets you onto the Top 50. It’s the sum of the parts. It’s the wine concept, the food, the staff, the setting, and that special something.   

“The best part of wine is the thrill of discovery. The venues in the Top 50 all have a commitment to wine that makes them the go-to destinations of the wine experts looking to find something new.   

“This is the ultimate guide to the pieces of wine paradise around Australia. Whether in your  own town or in another corner of the country, there’s without doubt a number of places  you haven’t heard of. For a good time, guaranteed, put them at the top of your to do list.”   

Voting for the People’s Choice Award is now open to the public. Those keen to vote on Australia’s best wine venues can head to younggunofwine.com/wineslinger​.
