Wine Professional Sommelier (Wine Jobs: Wine Retail & Sommelier)

Full Time

  Private Advertiser

  Melbourne, Victoria


Overlooking leafy Bourke Street Hill, Bottega serves some of Melbourne’s best modern Italian cuisine. The menu takes inspiration from regional Italian cooking, with several Sicilian influences and pasta is all made by hand. The interior exudes sophistication and comfort. Stylish leather booths and white clothed tables evoke a plush New York–style dining room, perfect for a romantic evening, a pre-theatre feed, a long lunch or a late dinner. With the added bonus of flexible and intimate spaces for private dining, accommodating groups from as little as 10 guests or as many as 60. Our rooms are a unique city dining experience. Located on the first floor, Bottega’s private rooms are perfect spaces for a wide range of events - from corporate lunches & dinners, Christmas parties and medical industry presentations to milestone birthdays, intimate weddings, engagement dinners and wine dinners.
