One of the prettiest places in the Barossa Valley sits in hills south of the southern Barossa town of Lyndoch. I call it Karrawirra, being the local native term for ‘stands of red gums’ or karra wirra. It also has the fascinating German name, Hoffnungsthal, or Valley of Hope, this being the name bestowed by the 20 families from Posen, Prussia who settled there, alongside a dried lake bed in 1847. They moved when the lake flooded in 1854.

Two wonderful reds on special this weekend. The Farmers and Growers Wheatsheaf is the best bit of blending I have seen. Two and two became not five but I reckon a seven. Yes the magic of blending - what an art. Then the Kitts Creek is another work of art being from our heartland, the fabulous Barossa Valley. Limit of one case of each per order. .. more...

The essence of Glug is to offer our discoveries of high quality wines at the lowest price we can. Now many in the wine business have learnt to measure wine quality from tastings but the other half of the equation which asks, what should be the extra charge for increasing quality is not learnt but guessed. Indeed much of the reasoning behind the price you pay comes from charging what the market will bear. .. more...

Two Wednesday bargains, one cheap and brilliant the other top quality and frankly cheap as well. Now I know many customers can afford the best wines and have little interest in our budget offerings. However I want it known that the effort we put into budget wines is special news. .. more...

Brilliant Blend
Region: South Australia
A colleague I worked with for a few years with an impressive palate screwed up her face with excitement when she discovered a bargain, loudly saying, ‘Oh a nice little cheapie.’

This is a very Glug expression and combines well with the spirit of the Glug winemakers who see making bargain reds as  more detail...
Great Combination Cabernet
Region: South Australia
I’m over the moon with this latest creation being a blend from our considerable stocks of Cabernet Sauvignon. Alert readers are aware that being able to see an opportunity for a smart red, take it to the tasting bench, and shortly after have it bottled at our winery premises is creating an amazing array of  more detail...
New Hand Bottled Treasure
Region:South Australia
First stop after arriving back from the south coast of NSW was the tasting bench to assess what had happened in my absence. Third sniff was this Cabernet; ‘wonderful where did you get this?’ Then the knowing looks and secrets began; ‘a little something we came across-not quite ready to show you this  more detail...
'We welcome any customer but you will enjoy the best of Glug if you like to see what nature brings. We make small batch lots, hence no two wines will be the same, as we are happiest when preserving the differences of wines. What we do best is buying at the farm gate and challenging our customers just a little with the many small variations we discover and create in our winemaking.'
Intense And Full Bodied
Region: Barossa Valley
The blending of Shiraz and Cabernet in our warm climate regions such as the Barossa Valley goes back to the 1940s.

It makes less sense in cooler regions as the divergence between the flavours grows and the varieties are no longer comfortable together. In this way it was natural that Benjamin and Greg began  more detail...
Best Of The Cool Adelaide Hills
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA

This Stratus is the third release from the same source in the Adelaide Hills, a high altitude vineyard above the town of Woodside. To bring out the best of Sauvignon Blanc you need a cool climate and to get this coolness in Australia requires elevation or a southern cool region like Tasmania.

Barossa Salt of The Earth
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
The Goat is one of our special wines. The Barossa Valley is a small, rare, unique piece of the earths crust and only from this spot do you get red wines which display such a powerful and unusual concentration of mid palate weight.
At times the fruit is so intense as to appear sweet a feature which can  more detail...
