Sophie Johnston – sommelier – The Sharing House

When Sophie Johnston began to compile the wine list for The Sharing House she considered wine to not only match the food but also the Yarra location and the diners’ tastes. You could imagine hours spent sampling dishes and tasting wines – what a fantastic job to have.

After what you would hope would be hours of sampling, one of Sophie’s favourite dishes is the Steak Tartare accompanied with a Gamay or lighter styled red. We can’t wait to try it. You’ll be able to enjoy locally produced wine by the glass or explore further afield by the bottle with old and new world flavours. Sophie’s favourite producers, Bella Ridge from Western Australia and Head Wines from South Australia are included along with a fun after-work drink of Lick Pier alcoholic ginger beer.

The Sharing House is a place to share dishes and Sophie has kept this in mind with sharing drinks also available like magnums, cocktails in jugs and large bottles of beer. She recommends you allow yourself to be guided by the lovely staff who will delight in taking you on a tour of the classic dishes done with a twist. We’re looking forward to it.
