Someone once said that coffee is what you drink until it’s time to have wine. We serve excellent examples of both.

We will gladly chat to you about your preferences and our latest finds. Step into The ‘Other’ Room, our cellar, for more options and to awaken your inner oenophile. All wines available for purchase and consumption at Alchemy.
