Sun Bistro Bottle

By S Haslam

The Sun Bistro Bottleshop in Sunrise is one of those great local businesses offering a new, unique service in response to the coronavirus. As we know, locals are going out less, many gigs and private events have been cancelled, but we all still want to support our local businesses, and also have a drink and enjoy the company of a few friends and family. 

Well, you can now enjoy your favourite drinks without having to leave your home – because Julz from the bottleshop is putting together a few of his favourite wines, into some special packages, that can be delivered to your door for a small fee.

This is a pretty convenient service; you can enjoy them without leaving your house, and they’ll come quite quickly too. It’s not like an online bottle shop; most people who come to the venue already have some great experience of Julz, and they trust his selections – this is a personal interaction with someone you can trust. 

They will be individually selected, so you won’t be getting crap with a couple of good ones thrown in, like many of those online mixed dozens. Julz has been 20 years in the industry, and he reckons he knows what local people want by now. 

‘We’ve been at the forefront of delivering quality wines at the best prices’, says Julz. ‘I have tried everything that’s in the bottleshop, and we only sell things that I believe in – they are tried and tested over the years.

‘This will be a chance to get a classic selection, or to try some more modern wines that you might not normally have thought of. There will be options for natural and organic wines, and there will be different price points, starting at $140 per dozen’, he said.

I asked Julz to give a couple of examples of what sort of wines are on offer:

The Unico Zelo Fiano – a beautiful, textural, white wine that can be enjoyed with, or without food.

The Peeping Tom Coonawarra Shiraz – an Aussie classic, big, bold and juicy.

The Ricaterra ‘Bullets before Cannonballs’ European blend – a juicy, medium-bodied wine that leaves you wanting a second glass.

A favourite NZ Sav Blanc will be in the mix, as well as sparkling wines from around the world.

They are curating some great packages of a dozen quality wines. However, once you’ve ordered your wine package, or spent $150 or more, if you did want some beer, or something from their huge tequila, whisky, mescal and gin selection, you can add it to your order.

Julz expects to cover the area from Byron, Lennox, Bangalow through to Mullumbimby/Brunwick Heads.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
