There are alot of amazing wines online right now. It's often hard to choose. So we've done the hard work for you. Here's six of our favourite wines on the site and we've given you a bit of everything. 
A fizzy, white, rosé, orange and two reds!

The Other Right - 2023 Sunshine On My Skin
Organically farmed Viognier, Grown by Mike and Margaret Sparrow in Mt. Torrens, Adelaide Hills. 11th vintage for us with this amazing site. Fascinating geology: ancient creek bed, ironstone and a granite ridge. These complex features imbue the wine with complexity and make it unique. Cold season made it our latest pick of the year, to allow for some ripeness to finally settle in. Restraint. Spice and marmalade. Stone fruit and bergamot. Let the sunshine in! - Alex Schulkin, Winemaker.

Dilworth & Allain - 2022 Glut Farm Grenache Rosé
Glorious, winter rosé here. 100% Grenache from the foothills of Mt. Cole. On skins for about a day then into old French oak where it left on lees for 9 months. Aromatic, fuller bodied and absolutely delicious. Perfect with charcuterie. Aperitvio and digestivo. 

Colomba Bianca - 2023 Grillo Granatey
Sicily in a glass! Grillo in its varietal tuxedo, pleasant and delicate: Yellow pulpy peaches and meadowsweet, every sip is sunshine. Made by the Europe wide collaborative winemaking project - Colomba Bianca - who aim to showcase many regions best organically farmed sites. A looking glass into regionality and respectful farming. 

Giovanni Armani Giorgio - 2023 Rosso Del Giorno
Ebenezer and Vine Vale DOCGs. Aged in large format oak, and some time in tank to keep things Swiss-Italian. Merlot is back like il diavolo Berlusconi and makes things più morbido, più rotonda, più sontuosa. 89% Sangiovese, 11% Merlot. An enthusiastic, vibrant and devoutly Catholic red wine for drinking with il diavolo and pepperoni pizza (Dominos probably) in bed. Cherries, plums, cigar box spice and dry tannin. - Giovanni Armani Giorgio

BK Wines - 2023 Pétillant Naturel Pinot Noir
This lovely pet-nat from BK is 100% Pinot from a vineyard in Lenswood. It's fermented in a ceramic egg after being whole bunch pressed, then bottled up to do its thing for a bit. There’s a lot to love here, chiffon cake, fat strawberries, chantilly cream. Dusted with rose sugar. Not sweet, but with all those fruity florals we love in Pinot. Brendan Keys of BK Wines is part of the ecosystem that makes up the wonderful Adelaide Hills wine community. Though his wines are say, less dogmatic than others in the Hills, Brendon's ethos is true - biodynamically farmed fruit where he can, fermented with wild yeasts, unfined and unfiltered. His ex-pro skater past…skates through the wines. They’re fun, complex, wild. BK leads by example and many others follow - a true leader for the region. 

Uva Non Grata - 2021 Gamay
A bouncy, jubey carbonic Gamay from Lyon. What more do you want?! So much zip and personality, brimming with spicy red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, red cherry) and soft savoury, earthy undertones. Uva Non Grata (Latin for 'ungrateful grapes') refers to the historical downgrading of Gamay while Pinot Noir became the ascendant of the two grapes in Burgundy. Gamay loves the granite/siliceous soils of the vineyards in the hills to the north west of Lyon in eastern France. Carbonic maceration techniques followed by a short cuvasion keep the upfront, juicy fruit characters in a no fuss and delicious lighter style Gamay.
