Regional Wines & Spirits was established here in Wellington in 1987 as a wholesale distributor of wines to restaurants. It was founded by Grant Jones who had a driving passion for the product. In 1990, a retail presence was established in the building we now occupy at the Basin Reserve, and beer and spirits were added to the product range. Regional Wines & Spirits has become one of New Zealand’s largest single-shop liquor businesses. It operates on a global basis via email and the internet. Grant passed away in November 2004, but Regional Wines & Spirits continues his vision and passion with our exceptional range of wines, beers and spirits, our expertise and service. Regional Wines & Spirits maintains its philosophy and policy of moderate and responsible enjoyment of alcoholic beverages through knowledge and education. Since 1988, we have organised a comprehensive wine, beer and spirits tasting and educational program that runs nine months of the year. The team here has extensive experience Read more »

  • While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • I'm making a lasagne bolognese for a dinner party (the whole deal from scratch, including pasta) and I want to get an interesting Italian red to pair with it. I'd love to get a Barolo but the cost is a bit prohibitive...I'm like to keep it at about 15 a bottle or less.Also maybe a light Italian white to have with appetizers. Unfortunately I live...

  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...

  • On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More

  • After today and last weekend, I wanted to discuss the pricing of various wine events- which ones are worth it, and which- not so much.  Here are some of the priciest I have attended:  Taste of Sonoma:  $100-150 depending on your discount;  Treasure Island Wine Festival $55; Rhone Rangers SF, ~$100.  Many folks I know think this is a high price p...

  • What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar?  Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More

  • A thread on another category inspired me to look this one up and write it out, because it's from Ben Franklin.  Who was pretty smart, and woulda been a Snoother had he lived to these days of the internet.  Well before Mr. T. Jefferson went to Paris, Franklin already had a great collection of wine, over a thousand bottles (the biggest percentage ... Read More
