Enjoy a glass of wine or bottled craft beers handpicked for our menu

A cheeky glass with lunch, or a bottle of something special to celebrate. Our wine selection has a couple of familiar faces as well as a handful of lesser known producers and varietals. The list is compact and designed to challenge you to try new things.

Osten serves a selection of wines, carefully curated by our own wine expert who has picked a range designed to complement both your surroundings and the food served in the cafe.

Our wine list celebrates the best of New Zealand varieties in both red and white along with a selection of great vintages from Europe. For special occasions, pick a glass of something bubbly or, if wine isn't your preference, choose from our selection of New Zealand and internationally brewed beers. And, of course, don't forget if you would prefer a hot drink we serve the best coffee in Hamilton.

If you are unsure of the best wine to pair with your chosen food, our friendly team will be happy to advise you.
