This is Wanaka's hidden gem of a boutique liquor store and an awesome place to have a relaxing drink and a chat with the locals. The selection of wines and spirits is second to none in town plus the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful....If you have time maybe try a cheeky platter ...... you will not be dissapointed.

We appreciate your review David! Although a 'hidden gem' we are literally 150meters from the lake front, just next to the vast pembroke park. We have the widest selection of wines & spirits in town and have a great passion for food also, we serve...More

A cool wee stumble across. We spent a couple of hours here tasting gin, beer and a couple of nice glasses of Sauvignon Blanc. Indulged in a cheese platter. Great service. Nadia knows her stuff. All staff super friendly. Tasted 4 great gins that I...hadn’t tried before, and two of them I will purchase once back home in Wellington. A relaxed atmosphere to just chat and enjoy. No pressure for further purchase. The cheese platter was loaded with lovely cheese and gourmet crackers, a great accompaniment to our tasting boards. Will definitely be back on our next trip!More

These guys know their drinks! If you live to know a bit about what you are drinking or where it comes from or how it was made... then this is the place for you. It’s not pretentious at all! These guys just want to help...you to find your next favorite drink. So enjoy the lounge style bottle store, enjoy a few tasters and find something new! Best bottle store ever!More

Thank you for your review & your lovely comments about our team. Our team make PWSW a really pleasurable place and truly love the products that we offer. Hope you found your perfect Central Otago wine :)

Loved this place! We didn’t have the time for a wine tour of the region, so this was our substitute. We had the red wine tasting paddle and it had four very different samples of 3 local wineries that we hadn’t heard of, and a...ballsy Aussie Shiraz to finish. The staff are knowledgeable, welcoming and really know their stuff. The platter we had was fantastic (too much for two!)...and we went back the next night for the Camembert fondue, (which required another bottle!). The adjoining bottle store has an amazing array of wines and spirits, and you can buy a bottle and drink it there in the wonderful atmosphere, with people who clearly love their job!More
