Bars and Pubs - Surry Hills, NSW
121BC focuses on small artisan producers, Italian local varieties, sustainability in wine growing, and minimal intervention in wine- making.
121BC refers to a vintage of Falernian wine – an acclaimed ‘cru’ of the Roman age, considered by many ancient sources to be the vintage of a lifetime. Pliny The Elder records that Julius Caesar, upon being served the famous vintage (more than 60 years later), said, “Dude, this vino is incredible”.
Take a stroll through our wine shop, where wines are arranged by region. You can pick up a bottle to drink in the wine bar, or alternatively, wines by the glass are available. The list is changed regularly, so visit “Wine” to see the current lineup. The ever-changing food menu is simple, and like the wine, is based on all the regions of Italy. The focus is on seasonal produce and sharing plates.
The wine bar consists of one large table which can seat 24 people at a time, and because of this limited space we accept some bookings for dinner only.
