Yesterday, this shimmy show-pony Chardy here was named Wine of the Week NZ by Mr Bob Campbell MW in The Real Review and awarded a lovely 96/100 to boot. Not only that, but he gave its more reclusive cousin - our Trademark 2016 Syrah (seen here in the shadows) - 95/100. We’ll that’s jolly nice for us. Only thing is, and I’m not just saying it, we’re rapidly running low on both. Rip in while you can! Be a shame to miss out on a wine Bob quite likes. ... See MoreSee Less
The gift that keeps on giving...
Now, you know that we're never going to get all tinsel and red-nosed about Christmas out this way, but here's a little thought..if you're after a pressie for the wine-lover in your house how about signing them up to our Drinkers+Keepers wine club?
It's an annual subscription wine club with plenty of bells and whistles. There are 4 wine shipments a year and the ability for you to pick how many bottles (3-12) from 4 different packages...honestly, there's more flexibility in that than a hot Bikram yoga class!
Check out on our website for full deets ...we'll even pop a welcome aboard bottle in the post so there's something chunky under the Xmas tree. And just thinking about that, perhaps email us directly when you do sign up and we'll arrange for that to happen so that the cat isn't let out of the bag before the big day! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Anyway, just a thought.

** The Residency **
See what happens when you have a bro who's a fab musician...we invite him in and he decides to stay... for THREE Sunday Sessions! And therefore it's probably no surprise to those who know Ben's music that we're pretty jolly happy with this arrangement!
Kicking off this coming Sunday with Part A - Ben's Collective ft. Ben Throp, Willie Devine (Tropical Downbeat Orchestra), Anton Wuts (Revolutionary Arts Ensemble) And Jason Johnston (Jakob), with support from the Akina Vinyl Appreciation Society.
So good Sunday Session-ites, put down your Christmas shopping list, step away from the wrapping paper and move on out from Santa's Grotto and join us on the hill at our first-ever Artist in Residency Sunday Session, with the most fabulous Ben Throp playing a smorgasbord of songs with a band of mates who just happen to be some of the bay's best musicians...dang tooting right they are. ...
