Just a stone’s throw from the beach, Coogee Wine Room marries the charm of great European wine bars with the convivial atmosphere only found at a neighbourhood bar by the beach.
Head chef Sandro Di Marino has crafted a succinct Mediterranean menu built around classic coastal European flavours and top local produce. The seasonal menu is perfectly complemented by a 400-bottle wine selection encompassing all major wine regions of the world with more than 50 different varietals on offer. The wine bar is spread across two levels, offering guests a range of environments to enjoy fine wine, food and company, whether that be perched at the front window or bar, dining casually on the ground floor, relaxing upstairs in the cosy lounge or enjoying a divine drop in the upstairs dining room. A friendly place to celebrate a special occasion or pop in after a swim, Coogee Wine Room transports guests to the heart of the Mediterranean.
CWR’s CellarDoor@Coogee events bring wineries from Australia and the world to Coogee, giving customers a chance to enjoy their cellar door tasting experience without leaving home. They typically run two a month on Thursday evenings. See the CellarDoor@Coogee page for this year’s schedule here.
At the events, either a representative from the winery or an experienced sommelier will take diners through the wines selected for the event, and discuss the unique characteristics of each wine and how it complements the more-ish dishes being presented on the night. Whilst the events are about showcasing the impressive breadth of the chosen winery’s portfolio, it is all about doing so with conviviality, and promoting the timeless synergy between fantastic food and wine. Whilst the CellarDoor@Coogee events are held regularly, you can also expect the same passion for wine when you drop in for a bite to eat, or are just enjoying a glass or two at the bar.
