About Our Wine
Bentley Restaurant + Bar is widely regarded as one of the best places in Australia to drink wine, with more than 1000 wines from around the world on our eclectic list.
Carefully compiled by sommelier Nick Hildebrandt, the list focuses on the wines we think are the best match for the cuisine of the Bentley with large selections of Champagne, Riesling, Burgundy and the Rhone Valley, as well as wines from Italy, Spain, Germany and Australia.
The list contains numerous producers whose wines are rare and of limited production. Many of the wines we serve are organic, bio-dynamic and preservative free. We also work with small producers to create wines that are exclusive to the Bentley such as our ongoing relationship with Adelaide Hills producer Lucy Margaux who makes our ‘Bentley Barrel’ Pinot Noir and Roussanne. We offer more than 30 wines by the glass so you’ll have the opportunity to try a few with dinner, or when you’re enjoying snacks at the bar.
Our wine list has been recognised as one of the country’s finest. In 2015, it was named ‘Australia’s Best Wine List’ at Gourmet Traveller WINE’s Wine List of the Year Awards, where Nick Hildebrandt also received the Judy Hirst Award for the Sommelier Responsible for the Winning List. Nick also received the ‘Sommelier of the Year’ Award in Gourmet Traveller’s Australian Restaurant Guide 2015 which followed several other accolades over the years including the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide ‘Wine List of the Year’ in 2006 and 2012.
