Restaurant Review: Sydney, Australia

Oak Barrel

I discovered this wine shop the first time I came to Australia on a wine trip with Josh Greene (editor of W&S). During the trip, I’d found a number of rare wines I wanted to bring back to the US to show my friends, and this is the place I bought them. Julian Abouzeid joined the Oak Barrel as wine buyer a couple of years ago, bringing with him an exciting and refreshing selection of wine (boutique and organic), beer, cider and spirits. He stocks everything from iconic producers such as Wendouree or Craiglee to newer projects like William Downie, Mayer, Jamsheed or Ochota Barrels. Make sure to check the website for their weekly tastings.
