Open 7 Days a Week

Check below for opening Times

For those of you who have just discovered us, let me fill you in… We opened on April the 30th 2021. I know many thought we were mad! But things have been ticking along nicely and we have already had many thousands of customers through our doors, both locals and visitors.
We hope to be able to make up for lost time in welcoming you, your family and friends to Inverness’ newest wine bar (actually the only out and out wine bar).

Located on the corner of Church Lane and Church Street.


For booking requests or changes to bookings less than 48 hours before – Please phone the bar on 01463 221 237 for Live availability.

(We cannot guarantee email booking requests within 48 hours, as we are busy and don’t always have time to check emails.)

We are both Dog and Child friendly in whichever order suits you best!!

Please note we DO NOT have baby changing facilities and buggies will be required to be folded up when busy.

Kids if you can remember to keep Mum and Dad under control as they will be far too excited when sifting through the wine list, so we don’t want them jumping up and down too much!

Something Different

Something a bit different, something where we are providing a wide selection of wines to suit different tastes and different pockets, a place to sit back and enjoy a glass of quality wine and conversation. There is also a fine selection of Whisky, plus spirits and bottled beers as well as soft drinks available.

We will also be serving simple platters either cured meats or cheese plus a vegan option with as much as possible being sourced locally.

We are ready

Spread over two floors with the downstairs hosting up to 24.

Upstairs the tasting room can seat 10 or 12 standing when hosting a tasting.

Outside Options capacity up to 38 when in operation.

We are also licensed for off sales so if you like something you have tasted you can buy one to take away as well!

For groups of 5 and above a deposit of £50 is required when booking
