Wine Larder

Wine Bar and Bistro

Life is Too Short To Drink Bad Wine


Under New Ownership

Reservations now available

Ashgrove’s beloved Wine Larder has reopened with new blood at the helm - celebrated sommelier Mark Whitaker. 

If you’re looking for an excuse to head out after spending the last couple of months in quasi-hibernation, here’s your reason! With a hand-picked list of 50+ wines, over 20 by the glass, local craft beer on tap, and a Euro-inspired bistro menu, the Wine Larder is everything you want in a neighbourhood haunt. 

The Wine Larder, with its elegant Parisian-inspired atmosphere and al-fresco dining, has been a neighbourhood favourite since it first opened in 2017. As locals living just five minutes down the road, new owners Mark Whitaker and wife Leah Shelton are thrilled to be continuing the bistro’s tradition in offering a welcoming space for excellent food and impeccable service.

The wine list will have something for everyone, from boundary-pushing new-wave wines to traditional old-world drops from both Australian and international producers - and of course Mark’s personal favourite region, Beaujolais, will always have considerable representation on the list.

Fine-dining lovers may remember Mark from establishments such as Gauge, The Wolfe, and GOMA Restaurant; and most recently as co-owner of Newstead pop-up wine bar After Dark. Mark grew up in Leeds, UK and he began working tables at the age of 14 before travelling to Australia at the ripe age of 22. After finishing his Sommelier exams, Mark travelled to France and fell in love with the Northern Rhone and Beaujolais (if you have met Mark you’ll know about his Beaujolais obsession!). He plans to continue his series of wine education events, Grape Sense, as well as hosting special one-off wine dinners in collaboration with the hottest chefs in Brisbane.

To use Mark’s motto, it seems Ashgrovians will indeed “Keep Raising Glasses”.


We want everyone to feel at home at the Wine Larder so therefore feel free to book a table anytime you wish.
