Lately new wines are being bottled every week and I find this very exciting as the quality and flavour goes above and beyond the price you pay. I encourage you to grab your chances as they pass, inspect our New Release Wines today. David Farmer

The great Australian wine cask offers good quality wine, so you can indeed ‘get what you pay for’. A good cask wine then sets the benchmark and as the price rises the risk increases. When you buy wines that have a fashionable perception and are very well made you move into dangerous territory as they are offered for prices well over $50. .. more...

A taster can say they know wine when they can place a score of quality and a fair purchase price on a wine in bulk before it is bottled. Alas, this ability cannot be learnt unless you are in the trade. Perhaps you do not know that once a wine is bottled the price is then set by the label and the perceived brand value while quality moves to second place. .. more...

Australian drinkers began the 1950s not so different to the 1900s. Beer, fortifieds and spirits were the orders of the day with wine having supporters in some professional classes but was best enjoyed by joining a Wine and Food Society. By the 1970s developments from casks to Orlando Barossa Pearl had altered acceptance and one part of our cultural cringe of likes and dislikes was crumbling fast. We enter the 2020s in great shape with a rich field of wine choices. .. more...

Region: Barossa Valley
Buying well means finding undervalued regions. For warm climate, full flavoured reds the best value comes from Langhorne Creek. The winemaker Benjamin purchased this wondrous wine just before Xmas and has spent the first weeks of January blending and modifying this base Shiraz to Glug standards.

First Release Was Shiraz Cab 2005
Region: South Australia
The Shearers has now moved to the 14th vintage and since 2009 have been exclusively made from South Australian fruit. The first wine was a 2005 so we have been working on this blend for many years. The early vintages were sourced from across Australia but the results were too variable hence the change to 100%  more detail...
Heritage Variety Offers Premium Drinking
Region: Barossa Valley
For 15 years we have been working to bring out the best of the heritage varieties Grenache and Mataro. Both are our labour of love though both varieties are now supported by a wide number of other local wineries and of course are now staples in the Clare Valley and McLaren Vale. Our best wines end up in brands  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.'
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. The Barossa was a centre for wine production for large companies, Seppelts, Penfolds, Hardys, Yalumba, Gramps -Orlando, Kaiser Stuhl and others a bit smaller like Saltrams, Tollana and later Peter  more detail...
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.

Impossible to provide but the idea is having a Grange in your glass every night. So we search high and low and get as close as we can. By far the best chances for making such a wine is from a  more detail...
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...
