About Us

Rathdowne Cellars has been supplying the local community in North Carlton, Melbourne since the mid 1900s.

In 1991, Eddie and Christine Kidd bought the Cellars with a vision of transforming the shop into one of Melbourne’s Premier Fine Wine Merchants.

Son Cameron now manages the business, and continues the family commitment to providing quality wines, excellent service and great value.

We are a temperature-controlled premier Fine Wine Merchant located in North Carlton - just 1.4 kms north of the Melbourne CBD.

We cater for all tastes - whether it's something simple for tonight's dinner, a special bottle for a gift, corporate supplies or stocking a cellar. We pride ourselves on our ability to source most Australian and imported wines, and if we do not stock a particular request, we will make every effort to obtain it for you.

We are Australia’s leading stockist of Spanish Sherry, a specialty we take great pride in.

We are also the only officially approved Melbourne retail outlet for Rockford Wines, covering their complete range of products.


Our retail store is open 7 days a week.
