About Us

The founders of Dara decided to create what they could not find in Amman, a place where they can explore beautifully crafted wines and spirits from family-owned producers with great quality and accessible prices. This is why they spend much of their time traveling to directly source a unique collection of wines and spirits from around the world, ensuring that every bottle on our shelves meets our high standards of quality. This direct-to-consumer model ensures that Dara’s customers get these curated wines in excellent storage conditions and at great prices.

Dara is not simply a shop or a website, it is built to be an information hub and a place of community. We strive to open windows into wine regions, introducing consumers to the people behind our unique wines with a retail location, online store, tasting room, and restaurant. 

A great wine shop doesn’t only sell wine but rather expands the notion of where wine fits into our lives. With our wine tastings, classes, dining experience, and events we are facilitating a thriving community, paving the way for a new kind of wine culture. 

This is why our shop also serves as our restaurant’s wine list; Dara Dining by Sara Aqel. You can select any wine and drink it in the restaurant, at retail price, with no additional fees or markups. We do not even charge corkage fees. This policy was created to ensure that our guests can explore a formidable selection with ease and confidence, in a inviting space at the lowest price possible.
