Happy New Year! 2023 is here and we are all just getting over the crazy Christmas and New Year period and perhaps a little too much enjoyment.
We welcomed many people through the Cellar Door over the past few weeks, it was great to see so many travelling and enjoying the best the Barossa has to offer. We always love to see visitors enjoying their time so please tag us in your social posts and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
New year, means new releases and we’ve got some beauties. The 2016 Lucky Duck has just been released both online and in the Cellar Door. The second release of our sparkling is again sourced from some wonderful Adelaide Hills fruit, but this year’s blend is a little different being from both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. If you haven’t had a chance to try this yet the summer is a great opportunity. As an extra little incentive here is a coupon code LUCKY23 to get 10% off* this wine at checkout.
*Domestic online orders only, valid until 31st January 2023, minimum spend $200.
We’ve also got our first 2022 reds with the Angels Share, Brave Faces and Fields of Joy from the popular Picture Series having just been released. Our Chief Winemaker Richard Langford and his crew have really done some excellent work making wine during the challenge of COVID and lockdowns but the wines look great.
A new year also means a New Year’ resolution. This year our resolution is to come and see more of you! We have a packed calendar of events booked for 2023 and will be on the road a lot!
Keep an eye on your mailbox as we send out more information regarding upcoming events in your state.
