February spells romance and in this issue we have some exquisite wine offers and prizes for your loved ones!
In our vineyards the persistent heat, and strong winds, over the start of the harvest season has resulted in several parts picking earlier this year, however many wineries are reporting that what they have picked so far the quality is good! Picking continues for the later ripening varieties some of which are picked by hand and the others with automated machines. Due to the high temperatures picking is usually done in the early hours as vineyard managers rush their grapes into cellars while still cool from the night air.

Please note that both our stores are fully operational during any outages that occur throughout our operating hours.
Looking for an older or sold out wine?
We opened our two stores over two decades ago and as a result have developed close relationships with many wineries and producers. We mention this in case you are perhaps looking for a wine that may no longer be available as we may be able to secure that special bottle for you.
