    We visited on a weekend so possibly quieter than normal. Great wine knowledge and recommendations which we enjoyed. We enjoyed “La Vie” platter of cheese and saucisson.

    The service was exceptional - very friendly and professional. We had the "flight" which is a tasting of three different wines that are chosen for you. It was so good and interesting that we ordered a second round.

    The owners of V Wine Salon REALLY know their wine. I am seldom as happy with recommendations as I was at the Salon. The charcuterie was also a perfect accompaniment to the wine, especially the truffle salami!!

    We visited V Wine Salon for the first time in their new cbd location having loved it when they were in Abbortsford. The new premise is beautiful and the atmosphere was warm and relaxed. The service is absolutely beautiful. The staff are really knowledgeable and happily share their recommendations. The wine and food menu was stunning and we loved the baked brie especially. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    A return visit, because we were so impressed on our initial random experience that we were keen to return with friends. Excellent service, convenient location are a great start, knowledgeable advice, information and suggestions are a big bonus, The wines and nibbles were varied, interesting and both a taste sensation. If you have any spare time in this part of the city, do yourself a flavour favour, and walk in for a different drop and some serious palate pleasure.

    We had a wonderful time at V Wine Salon. We relied on the staff for their wine recommendations, as we had not tried their wineries on offer before. The cheese and charcuterie platter went wonderfully with the wines. It was a great atmosphere.

    Outstanding service and knowledge. Me and my family were seated and served within minutes of arrival, we were served a beautiful red based on what we told the waiter and waitress and nobody was disappointed. We had a lovely chat with the owners that were only too happy to take some time and get to know us tell us thir story. 10/10 would highly recommend.

    Lovely little 2 room wine salon close to Southern Cross station. Large selection of wines, both local and imported. Our party of 4 whiled away a couple of hours here before heading off to dinner. Started with bubbles from Alsace and then Riesling from the Rheinland while grazing on a selection of cheeses and truffled salami. All happy campers !
