Sand between your toes and a drink in your hand… Yep, you’re definitely on holiday. Though chilled cocktails and ice cold Bintangs are dime a dozen in Bali, when it comes to picking up a nice bottle of wine, you might need to do a little digging. Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you. Here’s everything you need to know about the best bottle shops and buying alcohol in Bali.

Price of Alcohol in Bali

First things first: other than your basic Bintang beer (which you can pick up at around IDR 15,000 or USD $1 per bottle), alcohol is relatively expensive in Bali. Most travellers are shocked the first time they try to pick up a bottle of wine as the price is significantly higher than you’d expect in a destination that’s so affordable on other fronts.

In Indonesia, import duties on alcohol are set at a staggering 150% of the product’s market price for beverages with an alcohol content of less than 80 percent (including brandy, whisky, vodka, gin and rum), while wine is taxed at 90% of the market price. So while there might be some variation on prices depending on where you buy that bottle of red, the prices are unlikely to vary all that much due to the high tax.

Roughly speaking, a bottle of local brand wine (Hatten, Plaga etc.) will cost around IDR 200,000 (USD $15), while imported wines are usually priced at around IDR 350,000 (USD $26) and up. Imported spirits like Bacardi, Absolut Vodka, Jose Cuervo and Jack Daniels are usually priced from around IDR 650,000 (USD $48) and up.

Bring Your Own Bottle?

Since wine and alcohol in general are relatively expensive in Bali, many travellers opt to bring along their own bottle when travelling to Bali. According to the Indonesian customs regulations, you can legally bring along one litre of alcohol per passenger, duty free. Couples planning to tie the knot in Bali often request guests to each bring along one bottle of wine to cut back on the overall costs.

If, however, you don’t want to bring your own bottle or simply want to do some shopping locally, there are more than a few options for picking up a great bottle in Bali.

Bottle Shops in Seminyak

Bali Seminyak Red White Wine

Red & White

If you’re looking for a fine bottle of wine or an affordable bottle of champagne, Red & White is one of your best bets in Bali. This well stocked brand has two stores in Seminyak, with one located at the Seminyak Square shopping complex and the other at Bali Deli on Jalan Kunti. True to its name, Red & White stocks a good selection of international wines. The champagne section is also worth checking out, as you can pick up a bottle of French bubbly for around IDR 400,000 (USD $29). Next to wine, Red & White also has a good selection of spirits.

Vin+ offers just what the name suggests: wine, and then some. Equal parts upscale bottle shop and sophisticated restaurant and lounge, Vin+ stocks a staggering 18,000 bottles of wine in 250 different styles and also offers a wine delivery service throughout southern Bali. Vin+ is not the cheapest option for buying wine in Bali, but the wide selection might just make up for the price. Next to wine, Vin+ also stocks a wide selection of spirits and sake.

Tel: +62 (361) 473 2377

Bottle Avenue

Bottle Avenue is a small bottle shop centrally located next to the popular Motel Mexicola restaurant and just a few doors down from Vin+. Due to the shop’s small size, the selection is pretty limited, but it’s a decent place for picking up a basic bottle of wine, spirit or beer for reasonable prices. Bottle Avenue has multiple outlets across Bali, including Sanur, Ubud, Canggu, Legian and Pecatu.

Mase Kitchen & Wine Bar

If you’re looking for a very special bottle of wine to mark a very special occasion in Bali, Mase is the way to go. Located at the Maca Villas estate, this sophisticated wine bar offers a fabulous selection of wine which is beautifully presented with countless bottles lining the venue’s walls. This is one of the few outlets in Bali where you can pick up a truly exquisite bottle of wine. Needless to say, the price tag will match the quality – but hey, you’re on holiday; live a little.

Winehouse

Winehouse is a well-stocked bottle shop located on Jalan Raya Kerobokan on the border between Seminyak and neighbouring Kerobokan. Winehouse offers a good selection of international wines from the usual suspects – Australia, New Zealand, France and Chile – and also offers the local brands, Hatten and Plaga. Though the focus is obviously on wines, Winehouse also has a decent selection of spirits. Winehouse has regular specials, such as their Monday Madness where all wines are discounted 20% between 10am – 10pm.

Bintang Supermarket

The ever-popular Bintang Supermarket is located on bustling Jalan Raya Seminyak. This is a great place to pick up some groceries for your villa – or to snag a great bottle of wine at their small bottle shop located to the back of the store. You can make real finds here and the pricing is decent. They do, however, seem to stock quite erratically and the selection here is of the “it is what it is” variety. If you see a bottle you like, grab it fast, as it might very well be the last one of its kind you’ll see for a while.

Bottle Shops in Canggu

Bali Canggu Popular Deli Wine

Canggu Station

Canggu Station is one of the expats hotspots in hip and happening Canggu. This upscale grocery store offers fresh produce, cheese and fine meats and is a great place for picking up groceries in Canggu. Canggu Station also has a small separate room for wines and spirits. The wine selection covers international reds and whites and you can even pick up a bottle of Moët & Chandon or Veuve Clicquot – just don’t let the IDR 2,000,000 (USD $147) price tag scare you.

Bottle Avenue

Another outlet of this popular bottle shop in Bali, Bottle Avenue Canggu is centrally located on Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong on the way down to the beach. Again, it’s a pretty small, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shop but it still carries a good selection of wines, spirits, beers, soft drinks and snacks. On Bali’s standards, Bottle Avenue is one of the more affordable options.

Popular Deli

Located on the winding road leading from Batubelig to Canggu, Popular Deli is a good place to pick up groceries in Canggu and they also have a small selection of wine and spirits. The selection is quite limited and only takes up part of a single wall, but if you’re looking for a basic bottle of Plaga wine (they also sell it in 1.5-litre boxes priced at IDR 285,000) or a stiff bottle of Bacardi or Jose Cuervo, Popular Deli will meet your needs.

Bottle Shops in Sanur

Bali Seminyak Bottle Avenue Wine

Bottle Avenue

Yes, Bottle Avenue has yet another location in Sanur! The store in Sanur is slightly bigger than the ones in Canggu and Seminyak, but the selection is pretty much the same. Again, this is a good place to pick up basic bottles of international and local wines, and they also stock the most popular spirit brands.

Bottle Avenue
Location: Jalan Danau Poso No. 52, Sanur, Bali

Red & White

The fabulous Red & White has an outlet in Sanur, centrally located along the main drag of Jalan Danau Tamblingan.

Hardy’s Supermarket

All the supermarkets in Bali tend to have a selection of wine, spirits and beer and the large Hardy’s Supermarket in Sanur is no exception. Hardy’s is a good place to pick up groceries – if you’re missing cheese or other staples from back home, the store has a decent selection of imported goods. As is often true with Bali’s supermarkets, the drinks selection at Hardy’s doesn’t go far beyond on the basics, but it’s a convenient place for picking up a bottle of wine while doing the grocery run for your villa.

Local Plaga and Hatten brands are naturally also on offer. Both the spirits and beer section offer a good mix of local and international brands.

Bottle Shops in Nusa Dua

Coco Supermarket

Nusa Dua is characterised by huge all-inclusive resorts and there are not that many spots for picking up your own bottle of wine in the area. That being said, there is a decent sized Coco Supermarket at the Bali Collection shopping mall. This store includes your basic supermarket liqueur section and it’s one of your best bets for picking up a bottle in Nusa Dua, or the wider Bukit area for that matter.

Coco Supermarket
Location: Bali Collection, Kawasan Pariwisata Nusa Dua, Bali

Manarai Beach House

A very welcome addition to Nusa Dua’s dining scene, the incredibly photogenic Manarai Beach House also offers take away bottles of your favourite red, white or bubbly. Enjoy a dip in one of their pools before picking out a bottle or two from their extensive selection of reds, whites, roses, sparkling wine and champagne.

Coco Supermarket

Ubud has its own branch of Coco Supermarket which also carries a small selection of wines and spirits. There is an on-going debate as to which Ubud supermarket is most cost efficient when it comes to buying your booze and generally Coco is deemed the dearer option. Still, it’s convenient enough if you’re staying close to the town centre.
