Pssst - this is a bit of a secret! Beaumaris has a new boutique wine and craft beer store, Rack and Ruin. To give wine drinkers a chance to try before buying, either in store or in the restaurant next door, the last few Saturdays have been devoted to wine tastings. And luckily you still have a chance to come along for a couple of these. On May 6th you can take part in the 'Shiraz Symposium' and on May 20th, the Italian and Australian Italian wines will be on show and taste.

Rack and Ruin, as part of Beau Kitchen and Cellars, offers wines from small wineries from Australia as well as from Italy, France, Spain and elsewhere in the world where good wines are grown and produced. Cameron, the resident sommelier, is a font of knowledge of all things wine and beer related. He can advise, recommend, discuss and make you appreciate all things that you need to know about wine. His long industry and wine judging experience and travelling to wine producers all over the world have provided him with much wine knowledge as well as superior taste buds when it comes to wine. You will not only taste great wines, specially selected by him, but also learn about the regions and methods of production. Each wine tells a story, whether it be of the wine maker, the family, the terroir or any other interesting fact that personalises the wine.The wines are reasonably priced, but you can also buy some more expensive wines for that special occasion.

As the wine tastings take place on Saturday afternoons you could always have lunch before or dinner afterwards at Beau Kitchen next door. Small, shared and bigger plates are available and the food is fresh and delicious. Coffee is also excellent. Combined with a walk on the beach at Beaumaris what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?
