Leaning on its talented sommeliers and access to the best local and international beverage purveyors – the best wines from Crown Melbourne now delivered to your door.
Crown Melbourne (Crown) has opened the doors to Cellar & Co, a premium beverage store and online experience offering a bespoke, ever-changing collection of world-class wine, champagne and spirits – curated by two of Crown’s leading sommelier experts.
Located within Crown Towers, Cellar & Co is led by renowned sommeliers Chris Crawford and Matt Brooke and will give customers rare access to a variety of local and international pours – many of which are firm favourites on the best wine lists at Crown’s array of restaurants in Melbourne.
Customers can expect to find exclusive ranges, rare vintages and everyday drops at competitive prices, including Josef Chromy, TarraWarra Estate, Ruinart Champagne and Château de Sancerre, as well as a selection of quality gift items. Think specialised premium glassware and decanters by Riedel, wine reference books, as well as carefully curated packs that can also be conveniently purchased from the Cellar & Co store.
“We’ve tried to reflect the extensive and carefully curated drinks offering for which Crown is renowned and included some of the world’s most hard-to-come-by wines, as well as local pours that people have come to know and love,” says Crawford.
“Often guests fall in love with a particular wine at one of our restaurants, but then find it impossible to track down the bottle. Now guests can visit us at Cellar & Co and enjoy some of their favourite wines that they may have experienced across our venues such as Nobu, Bistro Guillaume, Silks and Koko – all from the comfort of their home.”
With myriad accolades and a rich career in the wine industry, Crawford is part of the current chair of judges for the Yarra Valley Show and James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge and is currently Co-President of Sommeliers Australia.
Brooke’s sommelier journey has been equally impressive and is one that has seen his expertise span Melbourne and Brisbane as both a wine educator and winemaker.
Cellar & Co is located on Level B1 of Crown Towers and is open daily from 12pm–8pm. Or to visit the online store, head to https://crowncellarandco.com.au/.
