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.
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.
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.
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
The best wine/spirits store in town. Always loads and loads of choice all from the cheap and cheerful through to the very finest wines available. Great knowledgable staff. The best.
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 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.
Fantastic selection and knowledgeable staff. If you're looking for something in particular then they may well have it.
I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
