Sydney's best wine bars 2015

The Bentley

The Bentley

Looking for a good wine bar in Sydney? Here are some of our favourites.

Start with an apéritif before diving into Nick Hildebrandt's big-ticket list at Bentley (27 O'Connell St, Sydney, 02 8214 0505) or the abridged selection of whites, reds and everything in between at sister Monopole (71A Macleay St, Potts Point, 02 9360 4410).

By night, grands crus take centre stage at Rockpool Bar & Grill (66 Hunter St, Sydney, 02 8078 1900), while silks find refuge at Fix St James (111 Elizabeth St, Sydney, 02 9232 2767).

For the Eurocentric, De Vine (32 Market St, Sydney, 02 9262 6906) pours an impressive array by the glass; otherwise get your taste of the Old World at Ash St Cellar (1 Ash St, Sydney, 02 9240 3000) or neighbouring Felix (2 Ash St, Sydney, 02 9240 3000).

Natural wine is an all-Italo affair at 121BC (4/50 Holt St, Surry Hills, entry via Gladstone St, 02 9699 1582), while the pour at Love, Tilly Devine (91 Crown La, Darlinghurst, 02 9326 9297) continues Sydney's ode to nature.

Cosy up beside your neighbour at 10 William St (10 William St, Paddington, 02 9360 3310) for its natural beauties, globetrotting finds and Black Market sake, all made for its wine-friendly menu.
