Just some of the kind words that have been said about us over the years...

"Since 1987 the Australian Wine Centre has offered one of the city's premium wine shopping experiences. It's a veritable Alladin's cave of Australian and New Zealand drops - the choice is simply staggering." The Sydney Morning Herald Foodies Guide to Sydney 2011

"And finally, if you're thinking of buying wine to ship home, the best place to do it is the privately run Australian Wine Centre. It has a vast selection of Aussie wines, including some older vintages and specialises in keeping track of how to navigate American wine regulations legally." Wine Spectator Magazine, October 1996


"This is probably the best place in the country to buy cases of wine to send home. The proprietors stock an extensive selection of fine Australian wines, and the staff are completely clued in to each state’s liquor laws and the shipping procedures. Their packing is almost breakage free, and they provide competent, personal service. Premium wine from all the major growing areas in the country are sold, including vintages from some boutique wineries that don’t export overseas. One of New South Wales’ largest stocks of Penfolds Grange Hermitage and other rare wines are on hand." Frommer’s Comprehensive Travel Guide 

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful service you provided to me yesterday. It’s so refreshing to encounter that kind of service. I rang to place an order, was served quickly, efficiently and with a pleasant demeanour. I then received the order yesterday afternoon, but not by a courier company, someone from your shop had walked up my 8 bottles of champagne himself – how wonderful to get such personal service and all with a smile…" Sandra, Sydney, April 2007

"Rob, all is well, the wine arrived today…FYI the case was in excellent shape, one would never know that it travelled half way round the world!" Don, California, May 2001


“Thanks, Rob. I continue to tell everyone I know in the States that you have the best wine service I have ever seen. Thanks for all your help with the selection as well as the shipment.” Fairfield, Colorado, September 2001


"I have used the Australian Wine Centre for over 20 years and bought over 500 bottles from them. They offer a tremendous selection that includes all the well known vintners, and features smaller, hard-to-find producers that are so often the highlight of Australia's wonderful wine industry. This selection, complemented by the broad knowledge, expertise, and dedication of the staff, make the Australian Wine Centre THE source for Australian wine." Tony, California, April 2013

“If you are a lover and collector of fine Australian wines and live overseas then The Australian Wine Centre is definitely the place to go. Use their website or once they know what you are interested in, they will send you specially customized offers to suit and even find those hard to get wines that you may have always wanted to try. If you are organizing a function, they will help you select the wine and deliver.  Service with a smile.  Logistics and delivery no problem.” Olga, Winchester, United Kingdom, January 2014

"As an expatriate Australian living in the U.S., I have for several years ordered my Australian wine "care package" from the Australian Wine Centre. The variety of wines available and service (including organising shipment to our home in the US) are excellent. Since they all share in the result, my friends and family also thank Rob and his team at the Australian Wine Centre." Doug, Florida, May 2012

“Rob's extensive knowledge of Australian & New Zealand wines is excellent. Since leaving Sydney, Rob continues to provide relevant updates on quality wines & remains my goto person.” 
Bryan, London, June 2014
