There is nothing like a well-curated wine list, and that is what Bottega offers its loyal clientele. There are 150 wines & every single one of those is there for a reason, namely quality with an eye on value. The prices of the wines-by-the-glass are incredibly accessible, which is somewhat of a rarity in Melbourne. I adore the personality of the list, where you can 'choose your own adventure' or select from helpful style groupings. It is a careful & well-tendered list & I expect that the sommeliers know each & every wine intimately. I wish there were more lists like this - it is no wonder they have such a following.
