About Us

With a strong desire to source the best wines for his ‘family’ - Bird and Barrel took flight.

We are lucky enough to have the gorgeous Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo in our area. They are very fond of the larvae of tree-boring beetles. They search out holes and make some exploratory bites looking for the best larvae for their family.

We are akin to the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo, we too search far and wide to find the best wineries, we carefully choose the wines we offer and we find that something special that you wont find anywhere else. We like to think of ourselves as an online cellar door, ever changing and like the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo we will search high and low around Australia and beyond to find that little uniqueness that wine lovers crave … hence BIRD AND BARREL.

Just like we put our heart and soul into finding the best wines we also take the same amount of care and precision when we pack our wines, whether you are purchasing our wines for yourself, a gift for that someone special or looking for a corporate gift with that personal touch to say thank you to a colleague, staff or clients.

All our orders are delivered in one of our gorgeous gift boxes, where you will also have the option to have a message written on a card to add that personal touch.

For those of you who would like to receive a handpicked collection of wines every 1, 2 or 3 months, we offer the EARLY BIRD WINE CLUB.

Here you get to experience a taste of what life is like for the Bird and Barrel crew. Choose the types of wine that you would like to receive in your dozen and we’ll select the favourites that we come across in our travels. You’ll get to taste wines that may not appear in our ranges. They’re not always from one of our ‘family of producers’, but they are always wines that we have experienced and loved so much that we just had to bring them home to offer to our Early Bird Wine Clubbers.

Just like we put our heart and soul into finding the best wines we also take the same amount of care and precision when we pack our wines, whether you are purchasing our wines for yourself, a gift for that someone special or looking for a corporate gift with that personal touch to say thank you to a colleague, staff or clients.
