"A list for wine lovers to go long on, dive in and explore, exemplifying a modern take on Australian wine selection."

V Wine Salon is the epitome of the French wine bar experience.
Located in a beautiful heritage-listed building in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, cosy seats, high ceilings and modern decor reminiscent of Paris-by-night are paired with friendly, knowledgeable and professional service.
Our story begins with our irrepressibly creative and passionate co-founder and director Vianney Establet. Vianney was born in prime Bordeaux terroir with wine in his veins, coming from a family of winemakers going back five generations, and honed his craft as a sommelier for over a decade in some of the finest restaurants and private clubs around the world.
We pride ourselves on our eclectic boutique wine list, craft beers, cocktails and an impressive selection of gourmet cheeses and other French nibbles making V the perfect venue for catching up with friends, dates, groups and after-work drinks. Wine to take home is also available from our retail boutique.
V Wine Salon brings to life our philosophy and ideas about food and wine: that amazing wine should be accessible, that hospitality should be about people, and that artists and small scale producers should be celebrated. After two years at our original site in Abbotsford we are excited to be in our flagship CBD site in the historic Donkey Wheel House on Bourke Street, Melbourne.
V is for Vianney. V is also for vin, French for wine. And V is for vie, French for life.
Location: 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne VIC 3000
