We started with a glass of rosè brut and the baked Camembert with truffle acacia honey, then enjoyed a bottle of Cab Sav recommended by V and some charcuterie. The ambiance was perfect for a Friday night - casual and refined without feeling intimidating.

They could tell us so much about the wines, and the cheese they were paired with making for a good experience. My friend & I wished we hadn’t driven so we could have had more than a couple glasses. Will definitely be coming back and recommending to my other friends.

The staff are so knowledgeable and helpful, assisting us to choose two delicious bottles of red wine. We ordered a few cheese to go with it and they chose ones that would match our wines perfectly. Great atmosphere and perfect noise level - happening but quiet enough to hear each other. Loved it so much we're going back next week!

He took the time to speak to us, learning about our preferred tastes and make (really good!) wine recommendations. We love the philosophy of V Wine Salon, it's a beautiful space and is bringing vibrancy to the corner of Victoria and Nicholson Street. If we weren't moving interstate we would've become regulars. We left with full bellies, smiles on our faces and a personal recommendation of a 1990 Pedro Ximenez to purchase as a special gift for a loved one.
