Wine & More

Our wine and spirits list brings together old and new worlds. Food and wine pairing is a real treat at Bistro Gentil as we are the first restaurant in the South Island equipped with Enomatic wine dispensing machines. These technical wonders keep the qualities of wine intact once a bottle is opened, so we are able to offer a fantastic selection of 24 wines by the glass.

Join us for a cocktail or two on the terrace overlooking the lake. Or relax with a glass of wine in one hand and a Pétanque 'boule' in the other. With our wine card, you are free to pour your own measure from the Enomatic machines. Half glass, full glass and even a taster... Pick and mix according to your dish choices and mood.

Throughout the year, we will open very special bottles to share. So If you have it on your bucket list to taste a grand cru classé like Château Margaux or Mouton Rothschild, we could perhaps do this together...

It will be our pleasure to share our finds, alongside famous labels. Because as the French saying goes, life is too short to drink bad wine.
