Not only a small shop, you are able to find a large range of wines, at least 200 types of wines and 100 labels of single malt whisky, Japanese Whisky and craft beers.
A few region of wines that you can find it here Australia, Italy, France, Spain and others. I find that their Italian wine range are interesting. Definitely there are a few bottles that is worth to explore there. With the regulars often hang out in the space, they have feedback to the owner that they wish to have some bites to hit on. Hence, you can order some tapas on the menu now.
Occasionally, they do have wine pairing dinner.
