Grapevine Cellars/For Lease – Belfield, NSW

In yet another sign of the times, a unit block will replace this former Liquorland bottle shop, which is heading to virtual pastures, having moved online on May…1th?


How could they make a mistake like this? Didn’t anyone spot the error when they were painting the sign on in hot pink? Does May the 1th fall right after Smarch? Was this a leap-100-million-years and we just don’t realise that a May 1th hasn’t occurred since a stegosaurus got laughed at by his unlearned friends for painting May 1th on his soon-to-be-moving bottle-o?

You know what? Good. I’m glad they’re moving. That way I don’t have to pay twenty dollarth for a bottle of wine.

  1. They where cheaper than Woolies and Coles and the online store is even cheaper…a sign of the times yes.

    Before the liquor shop, this very spot was once occupied by a green wooden cottage. My cousin once lived there. To the left (from the photo) is the Belfield Plaza/Nature’s Best complex. Before the Belfield Plaza/Nature’s Best complex was the BP station. It was known as BP “Merriwee” under pumps’ awning. The liquor shop together with other small shops and a corner house on Blackwood Ave became a block of home units, oh sorry, a block of apartments.
