Round Bird Wine Merchants is a boutique wine purveyor located in Lilydale, at the gateway to the Yarra Valley. Being so close to such an iconic wine producing area, combined with our commitment to promoting local produce, we naturally have a specific focus on winemakers and vineyards located in the Yarra Valley. All our wines are made by small, independent, local winemakers you simply will not find in the bigger chains. They work hard, they craft beautifully, and the result is wines of incredible quality at prices that surprise. Honestly, the wines all punch well above their weight.
We are constantly searching, and adding to our collection of local wines, with local beer makers and spirit makers also joining the ranks.
So pop on down and check out what is most probably the largest collection of Yarra Valley wines in the Eastern Suburbs!
