Pinot blanc, South Tyrol’s most important grape variety, has awakened from its slumber and has evolved a calling-card wine for the region. Schulthauser, having been vinified and bottled for the first time in 1982, is the consummate South Tyrolean Pinot blanc. This wine isn’t ostentatious, but is the consummate fresh-and-fruity Pinot blanc, the enjoyment of which is found both in its creamy softness and its lively acidity.
A premium aperitif and summer wine, it is also quite versatile when it comes to food pairing: it goes well not only with seafood and fish but also with delicate dishes made with wild fowl. It is especially recommended as an accompaniment to South Tyrolean Schlutzkrapfen.

Amber, with golden reflections, it is a drinkable Red Ale. You will be won over by the caramelized aromas of the malt and, at the sip, the balance with the aroma hops. The body is structured and the foam persistent. It has character; it is intense and drinkable. Excellent to combine with red meats, long cooking dishes and aged cheeses.
Alcohol content: 5.6% alc.
Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery, but above all it is a family.
Artus is an artistic translation of our local Gin Gin clone into wine. It is a provocative, complex and textural wine exuding the seductive spirit of “old world” chardonnay. The vines have been managed to allow only dappled light into the fruiting zone. This promotes flavor development, low tannins and bright levels of natural acidity. The fruit is farmed in the cool southern end of Margaret River. The tiny 100g Gin Gin clusters are hand harvested at first light to preserve freshness of fruit.
Flavours of fresh nectarines and candied pecan nuts are supported by aromas of poached pears and marzipan.
Region: Margaret River, WA
A great craft beer from Lord Nelson, the oldest licensed hotel in Sydney. One of the first hotels to brew their own. This Three Sheets Pale Ale has delightfully balanced malt, overtones of herbaceous hop characters, citrus flora’s and aromas. Medium Gold in Colour.
Raboso is a native grape of the Veneto, whose presence is documented in the Piave from 600, although its cultivation in thenortheast of Italy dates back to before the advent of Rome. In an ancient ampelographic Bulletin of 1885 we read that the ambassadors of the Most Serene Republic of Venice – which concluded its history in 1797 – in honor of England’s most famous characters with a few bottles of Raboso. Vineyard and stages of cultivation: The vineyard consists of old vines grown in Casarsa, is located in the municipality of Tezze di Piave on an alluvial soil, consisting of carry-gravel of the river Piave. In the vineyard of the interventions are performed to improve the production characteristics of the vines and the quality of the grapes, for example: you select the shoots in spring, leaving only those that are best placed on the plant and in summer you remove the leaves that cover the clusters to improve the accumulation of substances in the skins and colors late summer, in September, it reduces the number of clusters on the lil screws to improve the accumulation of sugars in the berries. Only when the grapes have reached a slight over-ripeness can be collected, which is done manually.

Moorilla’s Praxis Pinot Noir is a contemporary Tasmanian expression of new-world wine techniques. Generous, plush, mouth filling.

The term “mutemuka” can be roughly translated as “a sake made with pure intentions or without ornamentation.” Mutemuka’s signature Sake is made from two varieties of rice the brewery grows organically. For their Moto [starter mash] they use Kaze Naruko a strain of ‘Sake rice’, but the majority of the rice used is Hino-Hikari a prized ‘table rice’. Sake made with table rice tend to be more robust and richer in palate weight due to the proteins, fats and amino acids that become involved in the fermentation. The ‘Mutemuka’ is initially aged for about half a year at room temperature before release resulting in a beautifully full-bodied Sake. Mutemuka has dominant aromas of yeast and fragrant rice and a rich palate with notes of Jasmine rice and white radish with an earthy, savoury taste. This Sake has great food matching applications because of it’s unique savoury palate. Perfect with salty snacks or ingredients like coastal greens or oysters; seafood dishes; or hard cheeses like Tête de Moine.
One of the most recognised estates in Bandol, thanks largely to US wine merchant Kermit Lynch, who’s sung its praises since the 70s. Lulu Peyraud, who ran the estate with her the late husband Lucien from the 30s, is still gong strong at 103. Incredible. The rosé is a blend of approximately 55% mourvèdre, 25% grenache and 20% cinsault.
“The Bandol Tempier Rosé offers a unique blend of complexity and freshness. It has a fine structure, with no tannin. The high-quality care given to the vines and the diversity of the terroirs produce a flavorful intensity and a strong typicity.”Winemaker’s notes.
Region: Provence, France
A dry Provencal classic made of cinsault with grenache, syrah and merlot too, this is bright and summery with strawberries, pomegranate spritz and richer vanilla aromas. Crunchy-fresh with sour-red grapefruit to start, it then mellows with a creamy edge to the strawberry fruit.
