    Pork is one of my favourite meats to eat – so versatile and great at anytime of the day too! This dish calls on my times travelling around Asia and having crazy good crispy skin pork, unbelievably flavourful dipping sauces and fresh & spicy salads.

  4. Kaesler Wines

    Kaesler Wines

    The Kaesler family arrived in the Barossa Valley from Silesia in the 1840s and in 1891 purchased land in the Barossa, spending two years furiously planting. They planted 96 acres of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, along with a few white varieties. Some of the original Shiraz vines are still producing grapes which provide great intensity and depth to many of Kaesler’s wines.

    Darryl Pratt - Wine Guru

    I’ve always worked in hospitality, my first job was running plates and cleaning out bars at a hotel in the Adelaide foothills. I saw how much fun the bar tenders had and knew that was the job for me. From there, it has developed into a career, if you think you can call drinking wine a career! The interesting thing to me about wine is no two bottles are exactly the same, and there is always something new to experience.

    New Italian Wine Imports

    Our Italian Imports have landed!

    We tasted hundreds of wines earlier this year at the massive German Trade wine fair, Prowein, at the Italian wine expo Vinitaly and throughout various Italian wine regions. Overseas we tasted and reviewed the wines at least twice and then we did it all again as a panel back in Australia, tasting and reviewing the best wines from those shortlisted for consideration. We settled on a very select few - just the 17 superb wines which are now in stock. Drum roll please…

    Here’s a little info on each of the wineries from which we have chosen to import these beautiful wines:
