Positioned enviably on Princes Wharf, Somm captures the ease and comfort of a local wine bar with the ceremony and allure of a regional cellar door.
Somm draws its name from Sommelier — a wine steward. These experts are masters of the art, science and history of wine. Put simply, a Sommelier represents the joy of sharing and savouring wine. Somm embodies this. Somm invites guests to discover some of New Zealand’s best wines on their own terms — a glass after work, a wine flight on the weekend or a cellar door tasting. Lean into the experience as it suits, trying something new each time you visit. Come for drinks, stay for dinner. Just as the wine list reads as a celebration of New Zealand's best producers, so does the menu. Executive Chef Gavin Doyle has created irresistible snacks, pizzettes and seasonal sharing plates that go hand-in-hand with the impeccable wine offering. Welcome to Somm.
