Are you up for the experience? Buckle up, for the ride with our #5 top selling white wine..

A majestic expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape, for which New Zealand (and Marlborough, particularly) has legendary status.
The prodigal explosion of flavours has returned in a powerhouse ’13 vintage.

One of our very favourite white wines: certainly amongst NZ Sauvignon Blancs; the favourite in ‘value for money terms’.
Customers agree: Cases usually follow initial bottles. That’s why its May’s Wine of the Month.  Read More

Protecting Content & Offers for Existing Customers:

In a Restricted Access signbid to enable our existing customers to feel even more loved, we’ve made certain mixed cases & deals available only to them, by restricting general access for a while to some MEGA DEALS. If appreciated, we’ll keep it that way Until the end of June. If it proves to be cumbersome or counter-productive (for those its intended to treat), we’ll make it vanish.

However, we want these treats to act as ‘thank yous’ to the customers who already return to us time and time again, by offering them first access to limited offers or amazing discounts.To access Protected Content (including some offers) available to existing customers just ask and we’ll send the password.

Other Sales Now on

 Until the end of June there are various discount opportunities; something for everyone.

  • Some have time-limits
  • some keep running
  • some are for existing customers only
  • others are open to everyone.

But that’s not all. Details of all our current promotions & sales are here.

Choose a discount level that suits, based on your requirements. We have been creative (so you can too).
