Whether you’re into Sauvignon or Syrah, head to these wine stores and online retailers to stock up on both affordable and fine wines in Bali.
Vinophiles, if you’ve ever been to Bali, you’ll know that the struggle can be oh-so real to find great wines in Indonesia, and that’s before we mention the often eye-wateringly expensive price tags. Due to heavy taxes and limited varieties, buying wine in Bali hasn’t always been easy – or affordable.
But as Dylan once said, the times they are a-changin’, and thanks to awesome online stores and brick-and-mortar wine shops popping up across the island, shopping for your favourite vintage or classic Champagne is now smoother than a Californian Pinot Noir.
So whether you fancy red or white, bubbly or tannic, we’ve found the best places to buy wine in Bali. From wine shops in Seminyak with special discounts and tasting events, to online bottle shops that deliver fine wines for free to your doorstep, these are the best wine shops and alcohol retailers in Bali for your next sunset soiree or glamorous villa party.
