Flor Wine and Grocer
Nestled along Park Avenue (next door to Erva nail spa) in Burleigh Heads, Flor Wine and Grocer is your new pre-picnic pit-stop. Authenticity underpins Flor’s operations from its ethos to its offering, with a strong focus on showcasing spray-free produce from the Gold Coast and northern New South Wales, handmade small foods alongside a seriously impressive line-up of natural, minimal intervention and new wave wines. The solid selection features predominantly Australian boutique producers however there are a handful of drops from thoughtful, small producers around the world, including Austria, France, Italy and Spain, to name a few. Observant oenophiles should keep an eye out for Project Seventy Six as this is Flor’s own in-house wine label that is blended right here in Queensland. At present, there’s a sauvignon blanc, a rosé and a chilled red to tickle your tastebuds. The great thing about Flor is that you needn’t be a total wine nerd, or even know your chardonnay from your chablis, because the team is always happy to help. The range will continuously evolve so there will always be something new to try. Once you’ve perused the grape juice, take a peek at the cold cabinet that’s brimming with picnic essentials – from fanciful fromage to portions of miscellaneous cured meat, shelves of pickles, preserves and pantry items. Freshly baked baguettes from Burleigh Baker round out the ultimate picnic spread.
