About Acqua e Vino

Acqua e Vino is a cosy, moderately sized, and very European-looking wine bar and restaurant in the heart of Yarraville, with imported wines and beers and a fancy Italian name to boot. It’s pleasant to have a bar that takes its drinks seriously while still maintaining a fun atmosphere for customers.

You can order a drink as soon as you turn the corner from the top of the entrance staircase to the bar and enjoy gourmet meals similar to those found in the city or St Kilda wine bars at Acqua e Vino.

Acqua e Vino is a laid-back spot where you can catch up with friends while tasting new imported wines.

It is a multi-award-winning wine bar in Melbourne’s Yarraville neighbourhood. Located upstairs at 18A Ballarat Street. It serves a generous tapas menu, cocktails, and a wide selection of wines by the glass or bottle.

The wine bar has earned some prestigious awards in the past. Acqua e Vino was the Winner of the 2007 Bartender Magazine Wine Bar of the Year, as well as two glasses in Gourmet Wine Magazine (2008 and 2010).

Acqua e Vino is an Italian phrase that means “Water and Wine.” this goes to show that everything sounds better in Italian.

This posh yet mostly unpretentious wine bar and restaurant have also earned itself an international image that helps it stand out, especially given its location on the west side of Melbourne. You will be hard-pressed to find another bar like this on this side of town in Melbourne.

Everyone else who arrives at Acqua e Vino can always get a drink of their choice as there are many different drinks on offer here. The back bar entrance for private functions is also right next to the top of the stairs.

So you won’t even have to go through the bar to get to the party you’re going to. After purchasing your beverages, one can take advantage of the venue’s generally laid-back atmosphere by listening to the indie rock music of the band.
