Wine Store Ripe For The Picking
Justin Lill Wines is an oasis of good wine – and beer, and cider – in the Shoalhaven Coast town of Berry. Lill is a former Sydney wine salesman who quit the big smoke some years ago for picturesque Berry. His shop has a good wine selection but the craft beer is the big growth area. Indeed, it’s threatening to take over. There is a wall of craft beer with cult brands from all over the world including Italy, Denmark and the US, with their quaint names, colourful labels and sometimes eyebrow-raising prices. Lill says if the demand for cult beers continues he’ll soon be selling more beer than wine. At 112a Queen St, Berry (tel 4464 1052), it’s worth a detour next time you visit the South Coast.
