modest hugh wine bar

Here at modest hugh our philosophy for wine is simple. It has to be god darn delicious. Chances are you may never have heard of the producer or even the variety, but please don’t let that intimidate you into sticking with the safe Pinot or Shiraz.

Take a moment to chat with the team, as everything available on our list was chosen because it’s fantastic quality, and there is a selection to suit every preference. Tell use what you feel like and we can help you make a decision.

We focus on small producers, local and international, who make low intervention small batch boutique wines.
