Magnum + Queens Has Opened Its First Bricks-And-Mortar Store in Melbourne

The Coventry Street drinks emporium features over 700 wines

You'll soon be able to enjoy the Magnum + Queens Wine experience offline, as the sommelier-curated online wine shop unveil its first bricks-and-mortar store today.

The Coventry Street space is being billed as an 'emporium of premium wine, drinks and accompaniments', set to boast a selection of over 700 wines from across the globe. It's a hefty, yet clever curation, focused on interesting new varietals and expert renditions of old favourites, food-friendly drops and those more textural creations. We expect, from the name, that there'll be a few magnums for special occasions, too.

And while the Magnum + Queens online store is all about championing that wine, here, the vinous lineup is complemented by a selection of quality craft beer, cider and spirits, from the likes of Balter Brewing, Melbourne Moonshine, Custard & Co. and Japan's Hitachino Nest. There'll also be a small selection of snacks, included Ortiz anchovies and other cured and canned delicacies.

A range of barware and glassware will help you keep your home bar in tip-top shape, while a series of regular wine tastings and food matching events is planned to kick off soon.

The Magnum + Queens online store, which sells both individual bottles and monthly wine subscription packs, will expand its offering to coincide with the launch of the South Melbourne space.

Find the Magnum + Queens Wine store at 274–276 Coventry Street, South Melbourne, from June 6.
