September will be 'Australian Wine Month'. Each September sees us focus on a particular country or region and this year it will be Australia. Despite all its success, Australian wines can still get overlooked. The diversity of grapes and styles is large, the quality unquestionable, and maybe with such currency uncertainty with European and North American wines they may once again provide superb value too.
We will have many new wines to show, offer special prices across the range and hold several in-store tastings throughout the month.
