Review of Love Tilly Devine
FEATURED IN: TOP 10 WINE BARS
Love Tilly Devine is a casual neighbourhood wine bar that doesn’t take itself too seriously. They are serious about one thing however and that is wine. But, they are by no means wine snobs. In fact quite the opposite. They just love wine and they love nothing more than sharing that love and passion with their customers, with no airs and graces.
The interior of Love Tilly Devine is slightly eclectic with a mis-match of styles. There have been no fancy interior designers involved here. The vibe is intimate, relaxed and welcoming and it instantly puts you at ease.
Their wine list comprises over 300 wines (not a bad offering for a 40 seat bar), but their point of difference is they focus predominantly on ‘natural’ Australian wine. They’re also big believers in the wine industries ‘minimal interventionist movement’ (or the lo-fi movement). So, you’re going to find some interesting bottles on offer here, some you may never even have heard of!
But never fear, you sommelier will be more than happy to recommend a wine for you if you don’t have time to read through their 300 bottle menu.
They offer a small food menu to accompany their drops. You can’t go wrong with the buffalo mozzarella with zucchini trifolati and fennel tops, or maybe the Prosciutto with pickled peach and mascarpone.
We think Love Tilly Devine is a top spot. Whether for a pre-dinner drink or for an entire evening. The staff are friendly and welcoming and they genuinely want you to enjoy their wine. Their enthusiasm is infectious.
