Eau-de-vie (French for ‘water of life’) is a clear, colourless, unaged brandy made from any type of fruit such as pears, plums, apples, and cherries. More unconventional options can also be used (anyone for carrots, apricots or pine buds?), but the aim of all eau-de-vie distillers is to precisely capture the fruit’s essence. Such a diverse range of ingredients produces an exciting prospect for those eager to explore this still relatively obscure spirit.
Just such a great range of wines and great prices. Never let's one down
Amazing selection and value, super quick delivery
Great selection has wine for my partner and craft beers for me
Best wine retailer in Christchurch. Awesome selection and when they special the wine you know that it is good value. They don't offload the bulk stuff
Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
Lots of wines to select from. Great customer service! We picked up about 10 bottles to bring home.
In business for 26, this is a fascinating wine emporium. The selection is truly surprising.
Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
Best in town, price, quality, know how
Best wine shop in NZ, the staff are amazing and the selection is outstanding. Don't risk buying unknown wines at the supermarket, go to these expert guys and get hooked up with the best options possible relative to your taste.
I live in the UK for me a great way to send wine to my son and his family they have a great section, delivery, and a pleasureto deal with.
Love the selection and help they offer to people like myself with less expertise. These guys are experts and their product, service and selection is some of the best in town.
Any wine under the sun and educated staff, just ask and they will match a wine for you.
Great selection of wine for excellent price. Also very nice and helpful customer service. Definitely I'll became a regular customer from now on.
Fantastic wines and great customer service! My wines were broken while being delivered and they sent me new ones as soon as I got in touch! Will definitely shop here again.
I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
Great selection of domestic and international wines at pretty good prices. Very good product knowledge from all staff.
Always a great selection at great prices. Excellent service also.
Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.
Bought all these wines from there , They give you advise regarding wines , Highly impressed
In business for 26 years , this is a fascinating wine emporium. The selection is truly surprising.

Wow wee ! Awesome selection of wines from around the world. Knowledgeable and attentive staff.
Great array of niche wines and super service and advice
Best wine shop in Christchurch! Caters to all tastes and budgets. Be prepared to spend a while in this store as the options are endless. The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10
