The two-level dining room at ARIA Brisbane showcases earth toned décor with a potted garden of orchards, white table cloths with silver service and floor to ceiling glass walls that bring in the natural light from outside.

Created by head sommelier, Matthew Dunne, the respected and praised wine list includes wines from national and international renowned wineries and boutique producers.

While the extensive list of wines can be matched with the tasting menu or the one, two or three course meals, the NV La Tordera Prosecco di Valdobbiadene from Veneto in Italy denotes sweet and fruity tones, making it a light and refreshing choice to be enjoyed while perusing the food menu.
