The Prince Wine Store set up shop in Sydney's Zetland more than a year ago and now, just like its South Melbourne mothership, it's getting its own wine bar where punters get to drink wines from one of the best independent wine shops in the country at retail prices.
Danielle Rensonnet, head chef of Bellota, the Prince's wine bar in South Melbourne, will oversee the Sydney menu, but the yet-to-be-named bar will be a different entity to its southern counterpart. Manager Jacq Turner says the food won't be "intense bistro" like Bellota; instead there will be a focus on standalone produce such as oysters and charcuterie, with just a few heartier dishes which will change every day. Turner says the quality and breadth of small producers in NSW is "off the chain", and produce will be displayed on the counter "to keep people snacking away on classic wine bar food". The venue will have a couple of private rooms and will house regular wine dinners focusing on different regions around the globe. The Prince Wine Store bar is expected to open in late June.
