Mary’s team to open P&V bottle shop
Lou Dowling, Mike Bennie, Jake Smyth and Kenny Graham have combined forces to launch P&V Merchants on Enmore Road.
The concept will launch on Saturday 9 December and revolves around the idea of having access to wines you would normally consume in a restaurant or bar environment.
There’s a focus on local beer, spirits and wines along with those of the organic and biodynamic variety.
P&V will team up with Earl’s Juke Joint, Bloodwood and Mary’s to create cocktails by the litre.
Not just selling booze, P&V will also offer high-end TV dinners and garnishes for drinks such as citrus, herbs and cucumbers.
The space will also feature the Mike Bennie Centre for Good Wine which will play house to masterclasses and tasting nights.
“We felt the Inner West was missing a local resource for getting access to all the interesting drinks coming from avant-garde producers,” says Bennie. “And while the shop will be filled with interesting things to drink, the education space that will operate from above the shop adds another layer to P&V too.”
