Many of us look forward to a glass or two of bubbles with friends and family over Christmas. This one is fantastic. Its being poured in some great restaurants in Australia and around the world. Its well-priced enough to pour a glass for your family (well maybe!) By the bottle its $56 or save in a six pack.
We are thrilled to see the rise and rise of dry rosé. Rosé sales now exceed white wine in France, and it has really taken off in Australia in the last few years. We have 3 lovely rosé wines.
Chateau Rollan de By 2008
This is a special wine that would go perfectly with turkey and ham and everything festive. It recently out scored the famous Chateau Margaux and Chateau Cheval Blanc (featured in the movie Sideways) in a blind tasting. Both these wines sell for >$1000 per bottle. We heard its being served on Air France business class! This is $59. A special wine to enjoy over the holiday period. Limited stocks. Find it here.
We have some great mixed packs at various price points with a mix of rose/whites/reds and dessert wines.
Don't forget we can send to your holiday address.
Some clever customers have done this in previous years and had a case of their favourites delivered to their holiday accommodation/agents. Brilliant! Click here to buy.
Courier deadlines are approaching so please jump on line and order ASAP.
Whatever you are doing this holiday season, eat and drink well but drink responsibly.

One of our favourite things in spring is fresh Asparagus. We are lucky enough to have our own asparagus patch, but the supermarket asparagus is a seasonal treat as well. We love to serve it simply: microwaved, blanched in cold water (to stop it over-cooking), a squeeze of lemon (or lime or orange), a drizzle of good olive oil, Murray Salt and black pepper. Add a grating of parmesan if you are feeling indulgent.
We love it with Domaine Villebois Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley. Read on »

Get set for the Tour.It’s that time of year again. It's time to enjoy the legendary Tour de France! Aussie Richie Porte is one of the favourites with team BMC, which will add to the Aussie interest, but who doesn't love the scenery anyway?
You can enjoy the sights of the racing and the stunning scenery whilst enjoying a selection of French wine.
The wines in this 6 pack are sourced from vineyards in Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley, Provence (the home of rosé), Madiran in South West France, and Jurançon in the foothills of the Pyrenees. This year these regions are covered during the final 2 weeks of the race. You can drink each wine when the tour reaches that region, or just enjoy whenever you want, before during or after the Tour! Grab some Tour snacks, turn up the heating and enjoy. Follow the virtual peleton on social media. #tdf #tdf17
These wines (2 whites, 3 reds and a rosé) represent very good value for money and are a great introduction to DiscoverVin’s french wines. And all at a fraction of the price of a ticket to France!
