I’ve worked in hospitality in Melbourne for years, everywhere from Marios to Movida. I’ve always loved the service in these iconic restaurants, where first-time customers are treated like regulars, and regulars are treated like royalty.
I’ve also owned and operated espresso bars, busy spots where I knew the name, coffee order and life story of almost everybody who walked through the door.
After work, I’d often swing by a small bar for a glass of wine. I noticed that the bartender was always telling patrons about new or interesting wines, but the place was too small to stock them all.
That’s how I got the idea for The Local Drop, an online wine shop with the service of a hatted restaurant and the familiarity of your local cafe. It started with a shelf in 3 x 3 metre sublet, and it’s grown into something I’m really proud of.
Exceptional wine and silver-level service are my passions, and I endeavour to provide every customer with both. Never hesitate to contact us with questions or requests, and if you’re not happy, ask for my number.
Here’s to health and happiness,
