Deli Wine Bar has opened in the former site of The Red Door in Surry Hills, with the venue undergoing a swanky makeover transforming it into a more grown up venue for Sydney’s discerning wine lovers.
The bar’s focus will be on a great wine list and a deli food offering of cheese, charcuterie and freshly shucked oysters. The cheeses and charcuterie will be prepared, sliced to order and weighed on vintage scales at the bar to either eat in or take away with accompaniments of fresh bread, pickles and fermented vegetables to create a relaxed, picnic style experience.
Sommeliers will stand in place of bartenders offering table service throughout the bar, ensuring a high level of service and a wine list to die for. Belinda Mackie, formerly sommelier at Sokyo, will be taking on the reins as wine bar manager and sommelier.
“The idea behind Deli Wine Bar is simply somewhere you can go and get a fresh, simple bite to eat and enjoy a beautiful glass of wine, any night of the week,” said owner Darrell Felstead. “There aren’t enough wine bars in Sydney that offer something as simple and well thought-out without the wanky pretense, and we hope the good folk of Surry Hills will welcome this new concept.”
The bar has its own entrance from Sophia Street, with the long-term aim of having a late night license, creating a new hub for live music, great food and drinks for Surry Hills’ night owls.
