'15 Trade Days: new arrivals, releases, discovouries and friends...

Much can happen in a year. Over the past 12 months, we’ve bid adieu to some old friends while introducing a stack of new ones, both from home and further afield. 2014/15 has also paid host to some of our best tastings yet— Dots & Bubbles, Re:Volver, Prüm-Cha ’15 and Benjamin Leroux spring to mind, and still we have plenty of new wines to show you! And so to our annual trade day…
 
This time around, we are decamping to 1000 Pound Bend (Melbourne, Tuesday 15th September) & Establishment Bar (Sydney, Monday 21st September) for a sort of new discoveries and latest releases tasting. We can’t list everything that will be on show but, for what it’s worth, here’s a snapshot of some of the wines we will be pouring.
