Paddington Fine Wine opened its doors for trade on the first day of July 2002. Built as an addition to the hugely successful Paddington Ale House, it was created to further service our customers and community needs.
Paddington Fine Wines is well named - we stock a huge range of commercial, premium and super premium wines (including many back vintages). Owner Neil Randall has spent the last 7 years collecting and accumulating many premium back vintage and hard to acquire wines from all over the country. We also stock a huge range of ales and lagers from all over the nation and the globe, as well as incorporating a cigar store stocking commercial and premium cigars. Our motto is "You don't have to travel to taste the world".
Beautifully designed in federation style colour theme, Paddington Fine Wines moves effortlessly from the commercial ranges at the front of the store, through to the premium wine section and the cellar at the rear of the store. In conjunction with representatives from all the major beer, wine and spirit companies, the store layout is constantly being refreshed with new and innovative displays and in-store promos.
Our ranges of wines, ales, lager and cigars are also constantly "chopped and changed" to maximize customer choices and options. The store has also become an important part of the local community with many town residents taking advantage of our EFTPOS terminal, broad range of cool drinks, or sometimes just to chat with our friendly staff.
Store Manager Jason Sandercock with sales consultants, Stephen Melvin, George Papatanis, Ben Cooper, Peter Baulderstone and Jon Randall have between them over 50 years experience in this trade and this ensures customers receive excellent service and expert advice. Owner Neil Randall (himself with over 25 years experience in hotels and bottle shops) encourages the staff to attend a number of monthly training seminars, trade shows and tastings to ensure that all staff have up to date and first hand knowledge of all the store products.
There is also a staff library containing all the current and relevant tomes penned by respectable wine writers and critics. We are very proud of our high level of service and our customers show their appreciation by returning time and time again seeking opinions and advice.
