My aim: to provide the best service and the best value in wines.


Zen Beverages came about through the sheer boredom of everyday wines out there in the common market place, and also from the lack of value found in a number of established labels. I’ve previously worked for Dan Murphy’s and First Choice. I continually found myself on the verge of being embarrassed due to lack of real value provided, not just in the products offered, but also in the service provided. What I sold at work and what I drank at home were polar opposites.

So I’ve decided to put my ‘wine’ where my mouth is and make available what I believe to be Australia’s ‘best of the best’ wines.

Clients of Zen Beverages are those who are moving away from mainstream mass marketed wineries, they want wines with distinctive characteristics, regional influences, balance and sophistication. They want the best of the best, the best wines from the best vintages. So, if you’re looking to wow your guests at your next dinner party, furthering both your knowledge and that of your guests, you have come to the right place.

Allow me to entice you back to the promised land by providing you with a list of many exciting and intriguing wines to choose from. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for (current release or back vintage), please send me an email as most likely I will be able to get it.
