The Bengalee sailed as a temperance ship and upon disembarking in Port Adelaide the new arrivals rushed to the Barossa Valley to plant vines, and around Greenock was a favoured place. To capture the ship and vines Benjamin has placed the Bengalee inside a bottle. Big rich and powerful.

I have a great offer for Friday plus Mataro news. Firstly, while preparing a range of our best Mataro and Grenache for new wines, such as Rara Avis, the winemaker, Benjamin, made a special Glug big red which I can offer at a greatly reduced price. .. more...

The exports prices of Barossa red to China have increased from $10.88 to $16.09 per litre since 2014. This is $12.00 a bottle landed price before adding the Chinese wholesale and retail prices. Since I entered the wine trade in 1975 I have realised the best red wine value around the Globe comes from the Barossa Valley. Perhaps this is changing. Here are two Barossa specials for your approval. .. more...

Management books urge us on to do better and ‘show them you mean business’. I love the thought and have done my best so after rummaging in the cupboard have found a red for $49 and another for $69 a case - weekend only.

High Value For Money Ratio
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
For this Barossa blend the winemakers have returned to the Australian tradition of matching Shiraz with Cabernet. This historical blend likely has no particular starting date though Yalumba have been supporters since the 1940s.

'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.

Exciting New Release
Region: Barossa Valley
When I began selling wine in 1975 it was not easy to locate and thus stock a range of 100% Barossa Valley Shiraz.

Rich Value For Money Reds
Region: South Australia
The search never ends for the ‘holy grail’ of wine which is full flavoured red that sells for a good price.

Wonderful Country For Cabernet
Region: Limestone Coast, SA
Back in the years 1999-2003 I drove every road and track that criss-crossed this vast plain in the south east corner of South Australia that we wine folk refer to as the Limestone Coast. I visited every vineyard though no doubt a few more have been planted.

Because it is such a vast area you will  more detail...
