Julian Recsei, Julz to his friends, has worked in several hospitality venues over the last 25 years and in the Byron area over the last 15 years, specialising in bottle shops.

What Julz loves most about his work is the amazing world of boutique handcrafted drinks, and how people are now interested in who, how, where and why these products are made. ‘I also love the local following that we have here at the Sun Bistro Bottle Shop, that allows us to curate our business to give our customers what they want.’ 

Julz knows he’s getting it right when customers come in and say, ‘I loved that last selection you gave me, now what’s next?’.

Being at the forefront of the ever-expanding world of natural, organic and ‘minimal intervention’ wine, and the return of winemakers from mass production techniques to ancestral winemaking methods, is something that Julz is very interested in.

Julz says that what the customers love about the Sun Bistro Bottle Shop is that it’s a locally-based service, the knowledge that the staff have of the product, their ‘narwal’ wine selection, their craft beer selection of over 200 rotating lines, their amazing tequila and mezcal range of over 50 types from many regions of Mexico, and being able to order in specialised products that customers would like.

Another thing that Julz says keeps the customers coming back is their range of Japanese whiskey, sake and umeshu, as well as the increasing popularity of their mezcals and tequilas.

Julz says the Sun Bistro Bottle Shop will continue to focus on the customer experience; great service, staff knowledge, and hand-selected ranges that evolve with the whole industry. ‘We have a local market based on all these great things, and we will continue to give the people what they want’, he says.

The Sun Bistro Bottle Shop is at 61 Bayshore Drive, Byron Bay, or you can find them online at:
