Pavement Whisper: the trio behind Bread Social have recruited mates to open a boutique bottle shop and deli in Tweed

Selecting wine can be a daunting task if you’re not necessarily ‘in the know’. From obscure tasting notes to unheard-of varietals from somewhere equally as unheard of – it can be a bit overwhelming. Enter Rob Roy Deli and Drinks. The boutique bottle shop and deli is set to open on Bay Street in Tweed Heads in coming months and is here to help you navigate the wild world of wine in the most enjoyable way possible – whether you’re fond of a punchy pet nat or something a little more unexpected.

For many, wine is one of those categories shrouded in mystery. Rob Roy Deli and Drinks is here to change that. The boutique bottle shop is a collective venture from Sam SaulwickPaul Giddings and Tom Scott from Bread Social, who have recruited mates, Adam Vaughan, chef and production manager, and sommelier Lyndon Ridgway-Browne, whose resume includes a stint at the hatted Paper Daisy restaurant. Drawing upon their collective and vast experience in hospitality, the esteemed motley crew is planning to create a fresh-faced bottle shop concept that is geared towards making the whole experience accessible, approachable and, dare we say, even a little bit enjoyable. Lyndon has taken the reins when it comes to the store’s drinkable inventory, with a focus on small producers, interesting grape varieties and unexpected drops that you won’t find in your local bottle-o. Beer drinkers won’t be left out of the cold room as Rob Roy will also stock a succinct selection of craft brews.

Accompanying the drinkables at Rob Roy Deli and Drinks will be a vast array of cheeses, salumi, margarita salts, pickles and ferments (that will be made in-house). Adam has some pretty impressive things planned for the shelves with a strong ethos of supporting local farms and producers. The repository will be positioned on Bay Street in Tweed Heads and is targeting a December 1 opening. Here’s hoping the borders open as scheduled so we Gold Coasters can stock our fridges, stat.

We’ll have all of the delicious details for you when they open. In the interim, follow Rob Roy Deli and Drinks on Instagram.
