About Us

Now open in the heart of Hawthorn (with Hampton coming soon), Butcher & Vine is the destination for lovers of good food and wine.

As our name suggests, we’re all about celebrating the finest meat, paired with superb wines. With our customers and the community at the heart of everything we do, our dishes are created with love, injected with passion and served with pride.

Our philosophy is to bring clean, honest, unfussy food and allow the produce to do the talking.  We’re also passionate about sharing our knowledge about meat and what you should be looking for in the perfectly cooked steak.

With an exclusive range of grass-fed, premium grade Galloway Beef as well as platinum grade King Valley Wagyu, our steaks have an unparalleled flavour profile.

Paired with wines from Australian favourites and award winners, plus a carefully curated selection of international labels, it’s a list perfected by our renowned sommelier Federico Bianco, and is sure to excite the most discerning wine drinker.

There’s also an array of delicious poultry, seafood and vegetarian dishes, plus sides for every preference. And don’t forget the desserts! There’s something to satisfy your sweet tooth too.

We look forward to making your dining experience one that you’ll want to keep coming back for.

If you’re ready to be tempted, we’ll see you soon.
