Chaffey Bros Battle for the Barossa label Currently we don't have an eCommerce facility (we are re-designing with that in mind) but you can download an Excel file of the current wine list and then order from us by email or by telephone (01)5441777 and we can arrange payment and then delivery; for delivery charges please refer to our deliveries page.

Valdespino Inocente label The Excel file has data filters to allow you to narrow your search by country, origin, price(s), alcohol by volume, colour, style, bottle size. It also indicates additional information such as grape blend, organic, biodynamic and/or vegan-friendly. You will have to enable content in order to use the data filters.

The wines typically have three prices listed - the first is the standard bottle price. The second and third prices, where listed, are for purchases of 6 or more bottles and 12 or more bottles, respectively. These are mixed case discounts. Wines which have only one standard bottle price are already heavily discounted so no further discounts apply.

The wines I've chosen are wines which I like, which have impressed me over my 27 or more years in the trade. Many are there because I know the makers, many because I like the particular producer, quite a few because they just seem to be really good examples of really interesting wines. All in all it's a very personal selection so don't be surprised if many wines aren't there - there is limited room available!
