About Annata

Annata is a small restaurant and bar located on the high street of Crow’s Nest in Sydney. Part cocktail bar, part wine bar, part restaurant, this little venue has a lot to offer and brings inner city buzz to the North Shore.

It’s a long, narrow, split-level space, with bare brick walls and dark wooden floors. Wine racked against the walls lends a semi cellar aesthetic, red leather banquettes add warmth, and a splashy marble bar below adds a sense of grandeur. Large arched windows look out onto the street side terrace, and offer a spot to perch and people watch. Regulars prop themselves up at the bar to explore the serious cocktail offering, while those looking to make a night of it settle in at the tables to sample from a series of sharing plates.

Annata Wine List

Part varietal, part regional, and part stylistic, this collection of 100 or so wines has been put together with care and attention, and focusses on Australian and European producers.

White categories include ‘If you like Sauvignon Blanc’, ‘For Lovers of Texture’, and the ‘Meditterarean Basin’. Within each category there’s a selection of the classic and the avant garde, a selection that aspires to gently coax the drinker away from the safe and the familiar.

There’s a decent selection of Pinot & Gamay, more Cabernet than you find on most wine bar lists, and a fun little section called ‘Juicy Medium’ ranging from Zweigelt to new world Nebbiolo.
