We want to make a special 6 pack for Winter. What are your favourite varieties to warm you during the winter season?
Saperavi - a full-bodied and powerful palate with lingering depth. There's nothing like the colour of a Saperavi Red.
Las Triadas Tempranillo - a vibrant and energetic wine with density, complexity and concentration. Tempranillo matches well with game dishes - which we think of during the cooler months.
Winter Warmers are not just about reds - how about a Petit Manseng? Ours has aromas of cinnamon, honey and lemon supported by some nutty notes from the time spent on lees.
Let us know what you want and we will put it together to help you warm up as the cooler days set in.
Its heart week... time to think about your health. Research from the William Harvey Research Institute in London believes ogogomeric procyanindins (OPSs) found in red wines to be the best source of red wine's health benefits... Good news right - but better than that it turns out of all varieties tested Tannat has the greatest concentration. So buy online here and drink up for your heart!
We don't have a permanently opened cellar door, but we are happy to open for group tastings by prior appointment.
We also participate in the "La Dolce Vita" and "Fit for a King" weekends organised in conjunction with Wines of the King Valley.
Contact us via our email email@example.com with any questions or to book.
Can you believe Easter is almost here. Where does the time go? What are your rituals around Easter?
Several years ago Delicious Magazine came out with a wonderful Easter edition... ever since then their "Easter Bread Cinnamon Pull Apart" has featured at one of our family sit downs over the Easter period, whether it be for breakfast, morning or afternoon tea. This year we will make again but this time serve it with our Prosecco!
The bread has mixed fruits and rind of orange which will work perfectly well with the zesty, citrus aroma and crisp flavour of our Prosecco.
Our Prosecco has a relatively low alcohol content of 11% - which means there's no harm indulging with a glass or two Easter morning and then later with lunch.

To get elegance and acidity out of Tempranillo, you need a cool climate. But to get high sugar levels and the thick skins that give deep color you need heat. The vineyard of Symphonia in the King Valley more than adequately satisfies these requirements to produce a medium to full bodied wine. Ripe black cherry fruit characters are rounded out by soft, mouth fulfilling tannins derived from the grape and built on during the twelve month maturation in the fine grain French Oak Barriques.
Why not open a bottle after an afternoon siesta on a lazy Sunday and enjoy with some Spanish cured meats!
Ole' to Tempranillo
You may have noticed while shopping/browsing on our website that we have two vintages of Petit Manseng for sale. Both are great drinking now and even further down the track.
Petit Manseng was originally from the Jurancon region of south-west France. it has loose bunches of very small berries with thick skins that allow it to hang on the vine until late in the season.
We like to serve our Petit Manseng with something spicy like Chilli Mud Crab - why not try this recipe from Gourmet Traveller with your own bottle
Note You'll need a big pot to cook both crabs at once. Alternatively, cook them one at a time.
