About Wine Sellers Direct

Glass of wine

Local family owned independents providing the right service, the right range and the right price.

When you purchase from Wine Sellers Direct you are purchasing from a family owned independent local business, the online division of the Di Pietro Family of businesses. Established over 35 years ago in the heart of Diamond Creek is our flagship store Nillumbik Cellars, owned by Albert & Angela Di Pietro.

This location has had many incarnations throughout its life and now comprises one of the most extensive Fine Wine, Spirits and Craft Beer ranges available in Melbourne. The Vines Café which adjoins the Cellars, is managed by daughter Vanessa and among great food and coffee also hosts local Artists Exhibitions regularly. Son Daniel & wife Trish in 2012 & 2016 opened Greythorn Cellars & Vintage 72 respectively, further exposing the locals in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne to an exceptional selection of beers, wines, and spirits.

Whilst we stock all the favourites, we can always offer an alternative from our carefully curated shelves. With the expansion of craft beer brewers in the local and international scene, popular demand ensures that all three locations have a compelling offering. 2017 saw the launch of Beer Sellers Direct, the Craft Beer equivalent to this site to ensure all international and craft beer enthusiasts get the best experience when searching for the very latest and often rare brews.

With the latest version of this website we hope to further enhance your experience and provide you with the very best service and support throughout your visit online at Wine Sellers Direct. If you are fortunate enough to be able to visit one of our three bricks and mortar locations, we are a small team, with a wealth of knowledge and will do our best to help you.

We hold regular tastings and events throughout the year predominantly at Nillumbik Cellars where we have the space for our monthly 'Meet The Winemaker' series. We are well regarded in the industry for having a guest line-up only others can dream of with the likes of Chester Osborne from d'Arenberg, Stuart Blackwell from St Hallett, Sandrine Gimon from Rymill, Allister Ashmead from Elderton Wines and many many more.

We also host fortnightly 'Behind The Bar' tastings for new labels we want to share with our customers, new release vintages, and for those that love spirits we have even had distilleries like Four Pillars Gin showcase their range of spirits as well. In addition to these great events we also host a range of 'Masterclasses' with industry experts, Loic Le Calvez from Wine Truth (former winemaker at Taltarni & Clover Hill) for in depth wine education, Joey Tai creating cocktails with Diplomatico Rum, or David Morris from Morris Wines for a very special fortified class.

We have something for everyone, and look to cater to a wider customer base than many competitors would ever consider, so if you love something that you can't find on our site get in touch with us so we can add this to our ever growing catalogue. Whilst we have an online store we don't wish to lose the connection we enjoy so much of in-store contact when recommending the right wine for the right food etc, so use the instant chat feature to ask any questions you may have and we look forward to assisting you, and welcome you to our family.
