ABOUT CASA DEL VINO

Casa del Vino has been a ‘House of Wine” on Hardy St. in Nelson, New Zealand for over 15 years.  As Nelson has developed and grown, so has the shop and its offerings.  As new owners, we are very excited about expanding the fine wine bottle shop to a full service retail shop, tasting bar and private event venue.

Our love of Nelson and its wine region makes for a comprehensive selection of local wines, but expect to find many boutique, hard-to-find gems from throughout New Zealand’s 10 wine districts. Having a passion for international travel and the (many!) wines we have tasted along the way means that a wide offering of wines from the US, France, Australia and beyond are also available for you to explore.
Juliane’s wine interest was piqued when she lived and tasted through Burgundy for two years.  This ignited not only her wine palate, but also a desire to taste and learn more, which she did by attaining her CSW (certified wine specialist) and WSET Level 3 certificates. So go ahead, don’t be afraid to ask any wine question – she’ll do her best to answer it and help.

In addition to our retail shop, we have installed three Enomatic machines at our Tasting Bar, where we have twelve wines available to purchase in a taste, half-glass or full-glass option. Expect fine stemware and wines served at the optimum temperature – how posh! We rotate the wines often to showcase cool new finds or revisit classic favourites.
You can also buy any bottle off the shelf (or even the ‘rare wine’ cabinet if you’re feeling flush) and drink it at the counter for a $10 corkage fee.  So grab a couple of friends, choose a bottle, and settle in with your wine and a platter from our menu.

Finally, while we don’t keep our wine inventory online, we do ship locally, nationally & internationally.
If you’re looking for that rare bottle or just can’t make it into Nelson, give us a call or send us an email. We’ll set you up.

Cheers

Juliane & Glenn
