Yeah, yeah, another wine club where wine rocks up to your front door. Thing is, none of the other subscriptions has Mike Bennie choosing your wine from wicked stuff he’s gotten into each month. Original packs, monthly. Yes.
Paddock to bottle distilling is a rarity anywhere on the planet, so Tasmania's Belgrove Distillery is in a unique group - distiller Pete Bignell's grain source is his own organic farm, the still was hand-made by Pete, the bio-diesel that powers it is home-made. These are extraordinary, rare, incredible spirits...

What the hell is P&V?
We decided we wanted a space that would also involve our community in the local area, with various collaborations and inputs from friends and proximate businesses. A bottle shop for the neighbourhood by the neighbourhood. We also have this website which is nice to look at and buy things from.
P&V Wine + Liquor Merchants is a purveyor of amazing Australian and imported natural wines, a supporter of local and craft beers, a dealer in Australian and unique, artisan spirits. We also educate and put on events. We are very cool. Seriously.
