who are we?

If you pride yourself on knowing the hottest new spot in town, you’d best acquaint yourself with Edwin.

Located on the ground floor of Southbank’s stylish new Shadow Play by Peppers hotel, Edwin Wine Bar and Cellar offers a warm refuge from the city hustle, conveniently situated on the corner of City Road and Clarendon Street.

With a focus on local wines and produce, Edwin celebrates the diversity of the Victorian region, meaning you don’t have to travel out of the city to enjoy the best the state has to offer. It’s the perfect venue for entertaining corporate clients, out-of-towners, or even a first date.

Renowned Sommelier Dan Sims (of Revel Global and Pinot Palooza) has curated the venue’s wine offering, highlighting the very best of Victoria’s wine scene. The balance of the wine list has been considered in multiple ways, through the inclusions of wine varietals from across Victorian’s diverse wine regions, styles of the wine, and the diversity of the winemakers themselves, with a gender-balanced wine list that’s an approximately equal split of female to male winemakers.

The approach to wine at Edwin is one of inclusion and accessibility to all who enjoy wine.

“This list isn’t a lecture, it’s conversation and one we should embrace and celebrate. So, no matter your knowledge, you’ll feel comfortable and
welcome at Edwin. But most importantly, it’s meant to be delicious.”
– Sims.

For those wishing to expand their local wine knowledge, join us for weekly wine tastings as part of Edwin’s Wine Program. Delivering a true connection for makers and wine-lovers, this weekly wine tasting program is hosted with the winemakers themselves, and explores a new region of Victoria each month.

What is wine without a snack? Edwin’s celebration of all things Victorian extends to the local and seasonal produce, with a range of seasonal dishes to delight and engage locals and visitors alike. The menu includes local produce including Port Philip Sardines, L’Artisan Petit Rouge Washed Rind Brie and organic Victorian Hagen’s Organic beef.

The wine bar and restaurant are available for reservations (via their website/ calling the front desk) and for walk-ins.
