Wine & More

Our wine and spirits list is a wonderful combination of old and new worlds. Being the first restaurant in the South Island equipped with Enomatic wine dispensing machines, food and wine pairing is a delight at Bistro Gentil. These technical wonders keep the qualities of a wine intact after the bottle is opened, therefore enabling us to offer a fantastic selection of twenty four wines by the glass.

Join us on the terrace for a cocktail or a glass of wine, overlooking the lake. With a wine card for the Enomatic wine machines, you are free to pour your own measure whether it is a half glass, full glass or even a taster. You choose according to your meal and/or your mood.

Throughout the year, we open very special bottles of wine to share. So if your bucket list includes tasting a grand cru classé like Château Margaux or Mouton Rothschild... Perhaps we can do this together.

As the French saying goes... Life is too short to drink bad wine!
