“Loved wine, married a chef, bought a shop”. Those are the words of Nadia Davidson one half of the team of Pembroke Wines & Spirits.
With respective backgrounds in hospitality (Nadia grew up in a hospitality family on the coast of the Black Sea, and her husband Troy was a chef in Wānaka before being a head chef on superyachts), the pair met on the ocean, eventually dropping anchor in Wānaka to embrace the Central Otago lifestyle and channel their knowledge into all things vino.
Enter Pembroke Wines & Spirits - a boutique bottle shop that delivers more than you thought you ever needed. First off, it’s a shop - Pembroke has a unique selection of beverages from all over the world - including Central Otago favourites, great NZ craft beer, local and international gin and whiskeys, and a ‘Taste the World’ section boasting international treats such as Rioja, Malbec and Chablis Premier Cru, as well as vegan, organic and natural wines.
Second, it’s a Tasting Room. Not only can you sample their array of wines and cocktails, but you can also treat yourself to a gourmet platter while exploring a bespoke tasting paddle. The Tasting Room can be used for private parties and is frequented by several clubs, including skiers and golfers, as well as aspiring artists who make their creations while drinking a tipple and having a nibble. On the last Wednesday of every month, they host a tasting event with a theme, and you can even book a wine subscription or rent a Pembroke Picnic Pack to take on your Wānaka adventures.
The vibe at Pembroke Wines & Spirits is homey and welcoming. People are encouraged to pop in and read a book and have a wine, have a chat with their fellow wine connoisseurs, or catch up over a bite to eat. Nadia, Troy and the team will hunt down special orders for you and will even have your favourite drink readily poured when you arrive for a tasting. Cheers to that.
