**Please note- we will be closing early on Sat Feb 18th, and we will be closed on Wednesday March 8th. Two very special Birthdays to celebrate  Thank you for your understanding!

We had a Great sale the first week of January that was very popular- I think we All depleted our wine cellars over the Holiday season ;)

 This led me to think about what special sale I might have in February...

New in store this month!

Passports 2017 Riesling and Nero D'Avola have arrived!

If you have a kit reserved, you should have received a call to let you know they are here. 

If you are interested in trying one of these Stellar kits-hurry. I am only able to bring in a few extra, they will not last long!


Citrus aromas with underlying floral notes make for a fresh
and vibrant aroma. Juicy lemon-lime flavours fill the palate,
accented by orange blossom and apple notes, mineral tones,
and a backbone of crisp, energetic acidity. The subtle sweetness
really makes the citrus sing in this succulent & refreshing white.
THE Region
Located in the Mount Lofty Ranges, most of the region’s
vineyards are planted at elevations between 400-500m. The
climate is moderate-continental with long, warm summer days
and cool to cold nights. The higher altitude of the region ensures
these colder nights, slowing the ripening of the grapes and
allowing the fruit to ripen more evenly, retaining crisp acidity.
Clare Valley is known for its Rieslings, and wines grown here are
heralded for their hallmark Riesling flavours – citrus, lime, apple,
with mineral notes and crisp natural acidity.
THE Food
This Riesling’s sweetness and acidity make it an easy pairing for
a variety of dishes. Try with lightly to moderately spiced Asianinspired
dishes, pad thai, or Tex-Mex dishes with cilantro &
avocado. A fantastic pick for cheese fondue and creamy cheeses.

 Nero D`Avola

THE WINE
A lesser known Italian red wine grape, Nero D’Avola has long
been a prized varietal in its native Sicily and in the last decade
has been gaining favour in the rest of the world as a serious red,
joining the ranks of big Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Nero
D’Avola offers aromas of ripe black fruit with notes of vanilla
and smoke, and abundant flavours of ripe black cherry & plum
with spicy accents, velvety tannins, and a long finish.
THE REGION
Situated just off the ‘toe’ of Italy’s boot, Sicily is home to a
number of active volcanoes, which create rich, fertile soils
ideal for agriculture. The largest of the Mediterranean islands,
Sicily enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with mild,
wet winters, and hot, dry summers with consistent sunshine.
This combination of mineral-rich soil and reliable weather
create near perfect conditions for growing wine grapes.
THE FOOD
A great wine to match with rich meats.

Try with beef stew game meats, or barbecued angus burgers topped with bacon.
Black bean or shitake mushroom based dishes also make for excellent matches.

Wine of the Month- 4 Traditional Vintage kits 10% off!

 

TV Australian Cab Shiraz

Craft the blend that put Australia on the wine map. Combines the structural intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon with the ripe fruit and chocolate flavours of Shiraz. This dry red finishes with spicy oak.

TV Valroza

A generous, emphatic bouquet of dark cherries and just a hint of anise. It doesn’t skimp on the flavour either, with an elegant balance of silky tannins and a lengthy finish.

TV Gerwurztraminer

Known for being hard to produce, Wine Kitz makes it a snap to craft this wine with its distinct aromatic character of flowery and spicy perfumes and flavours. Crisp and off-dry with excellent acidity.

TV Riesling

This perfect picnic wine is moderately dry with a refreshing bouquet of honey and tropical flowers and a clean, crisp finish. Great with simple fare.
