Our story

Smithward is our intimate, 17 seat, Collingwood wine bar at the southern end of Smith Street.

Since opening in late 2015, we’ve loved bringing our dream of a small, European-inspired neighbourhood bar to life.

Our exclusively Victorian wine list features undiscovered gems, and is complemented by a menu of grilled Raclette cheese, as well as a hand-picked selection of cheese, charcuterie and specials served with house made sourdough bread and condiments.

We look forward to welcoming you to Smithward soon.

Menus

We’re a compact and cosy wine bar, serving 100% Victorian wines and small plates.

Our menu is designed to complement our unique list of Victorian wines. It leans heavily on the delights of dairy, and so is not suitable for a vegan diet.

Please note due to our petit kitchen we are unable to modify dishes to accommodate dietary requirements, however gluten-free crackers are available as a substitute to our house made organic sourdough.

We make regular road trips to all corners of the state to source undiscovered gems for Smithward’s unique, exclusively Victorian wine list.

We buy direct from the wineries and have met the makers of each wine, as well as some of their dogs, sheep and kids! From Beechworth to the Bellarine, Gippsland to the Grampians, we love sharing the stories and passion of our local winemakers.

Our wine list changes weekly (sometimes daily), follow us on instagram and facebook for news of our new pours.
