Established in 1996 in the heart of the North Shore’s charming Northcote Point – only five minutes from Auckland’s CBD – Point Wines is recognised as one of Auckland’s leading specialist wine stores, as noted in Metro Magazine. Owned and operated by Simon and Jacquie Mackenzie for the last 12 years, (previous owners of The Wine Vault, Grey Lynn). Both Simon and Jacquie together with Victory and David in the shop, are not only passionate about wine, but have a feel affinity for people and ensuring everyone has an enjoyable experience when dealing with Point Wines.
We stock over 600 different wines from New Zealand and around the world, with a special emphasis on European Wines.
All wines are tasted by ourselves prior to stocking, our motto “If we love it, we sell it” couldn’t be more appropriate. All of our wines are competitively priced with our philosophy being that everything we sell should over-deliver, whether it sells for $10 or $100.
In addition to our burgeoning wine cellar and knowledgeable, tight-knit team, we conduct themed monthly tastings with food pairings – and we are more than happy to accommodate private and corporate groups with personalised tastings. Functions and Weddings are a speciality, with free wine and champagne glassware when you order your wine through us.
As well as Point Wines we own, next door a thriving little wine bar called Stafford Road Wine & Tapas bar. Stafford Rd is a true local, and with over 35 wines by the glass and 20 + different craft beer, delicious boutique tapas menu, it is not surprisingly now considered one of the Shores hottest little bars . All wines served in Stafford Road are sold through Point Wines and available to try before you buy. This is a particularly unique service that works very well when choosing wines for your wedding or function
We’re all passionate about good food and great wine here at Point Wines and Stafford Road, so come on in even if you have no idea what you’re looking for – we might just help you discover a new favourite.
