Our Story

Welcome! We’re Baz and Nina, passionate foodies with an appreciation for good wine.

The idea to create a place centred around food, wine and friends was sparked after our six-month adventure around the world (with toddler in tow!).

While travelling through some of the most beautiful wine regions – Chile, Argentina, Italy, France and Spain – we had the most amazing encounters with generous locals and knowledgeable winemakers.

They reminded us what really matters most: sharing wine and food with likeminded people in a place where you are always treated like a friend… like a local!

And so, after returning to Australia and deciding to call Adelaide home, we’ve found the perfect spot to create the place we love welcoming you to – The Local Wine Co.


Our Wines

Wine tasting and selecting is a job we take very seriously.

We try hundreds of wines, visit vineyards and connect with winemakers on a regular basis. We then taste, rate, review and select the very best drops for you to enjoy at The Local.

It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it!

Our wines range from easy-drinking, Friday night pizza wines to rare and exquisite finds for special occasions. You’ll also find all-time Aussie favourites as well as adventurous and exotic drops thrown in the mix.

Our Enomatic self-serve wine machines offer 24 wines by the glass and we switch them up regularly so there’s always something new for you to try, every visit.


Our Philosophy

We believe in giving you choice. We encourage you to explore. And we promise to be there when you need a hand.

A balanced approach is important to us and we source most of our wines directly from the winemaker because nurturing relationships matters to us.

A big part of what we stand for, believe in and cherish are our collaborations with local suppliers. Wherever we can, we work together with South Australian partners, so you can enjoy the incredible produce this beautiful part of the world has to offer.

Above all? We just want you to have a really good time!


Our Place

We want to be your local. The place that immediately springs to mind when making plans with your family, friends and colleagues.

A place that makes you feel good, connected and entertained, where you can relax and unwind with some beautiful wine and food.

A place where you chat and laugh the night away, creating memorable moments with precious people in your life.
