The Wine Press Bar
Located in the heart of Dundee's Waterfront, we serve an extensive selection of wines from all over the world, as well as some of the finest local spirits, beers and Scottish sourced food.
We will be re-opening on Wednesday 28th April. Alcohol will only be served outside - food and soft drinks will be served indoors. From the 17th of May, our lovely wine can be drunk indoors too!

A few things you’ve said!
Been twice recently....nice atmosphere. Great spot to meet up. staff were superb....nibbles and wine hit the spot.....can't wait to go back.
Great casual atmosphere and amazing staff. Not to mention the food which was delicious
Not just the food, not the wine or lager, but the fantastic server who advised us and helped us to choose fantastic light lunch. What a great place, we will be back and soon.
First time visit on a catch up with friends, dog friendly and relaxed atmosphere with excellent service and good food.
I had a couple of glasses of Merlot. Nice wine. Great service. I could have enjoyed the food too, I think, but I'd already eaten. Wine list was pretty extensive too including a "ooh. I'm coming back tomorrow for some of that!" Variety.
This one of the first place my wife and I visit when we are in Dundee, great beers and the wife loves their gins think she tried them all specially the chilli gin lol. We also had food on the Saturday and the pie was fantastic. A great place with really nice staff we will of course visit the wine press again when back in Dundee maybe they could open one where we live.
