    The Merchant of Tirau: Interesting Cellar

    by kiwi Updated Dec 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This may not be a shop for travellers, but it could be. Especially if you are looking for some cuisine from home. There is a very interesting array of wine here and lots of other goodies to go with it, both from New Zealand and overseas. Almost a delicatessen. I spent a lot of time just looking and pondering. Now I can go back and buy from time to time.
    I found French wines, Spanish wines, Argetinian wines, Kiwi wines, oh and Limoncello too!! Not forgetting the Aussie wines, reds are the best!!
    They have a cheese section with tasting facilities, also with wine, so you can match your wine with your fromage :-)

    What to buy: WINE, coffee specially ground, and cheese and stuff.
    Nice place to pick up tasteful and classy gifts, make good gifts for hosts you may be staying a night or two with on your travels around New Zealand.

    What to pay: Well nothing is really cheap in this shop, it is not a discount shop. However you can get things here not easily procurable around NZ. I don't mind paying for such items. But most are still affordable!

    Address: Main Street, Tirau.

    Directions: It's in the main street.
