Selling Like Hotcakes.
Don't Miss This One!
Whisky Barrel Shiraz
One of the newest trends in red wines is whisky barrel oaked. Which means you're going to love our Whisky Barrel Shiraz .

In fact, our first shipment sold out within a couple of days. We'll be getting another shipment this week, but we can't guarantee there will be more available after that.

The ripe dark fruit and juicy berries flavours in this limited release wine are complemented by vanilla, subtle smokiness and herbal notes from our genuine unpeated Whisky oak. Expect bold, full bodied structure with firm tannins and a smooth finish.
This  Limited Release Atmosphere  wine is not to be missed!

Drop in today to get one started!

Our Atmosphere wine kits make 30-750ml bottles of wine.
A winery fee of $55.00 per batch applies to all wines made in store.
Running the Only Marathon
That Requires You to Drink
23 Glasses of Wine Before You Finish
Preparing for a marathon is a grueling prospect involving months of training. For one French marathon, however, getting those all-important miles is only half the battle.

Passing through some of the most prestigious wine-making villages in Bordeaux, the Marathon du Médoc combines a 26.2-mile road race with a 23-stop wine-tasting drinkathon. To succeed in this event, runners must be just as comfortable with a corkscrew as they are in a pair of JackRabbit sneakers.

The Marathon du Médoc debuted in 1985 and is held every September, with more than 8,500 runners expected from around the world.

Each participant is expected to indulge in 23 glasses of fine wine and feast on local specialties, including oysters, foie gras, and cheese. If the extensive distance and intoxicating “aid” stations weren’t enough, competitors must also don costumes and complete the course in less than six and a half hours to avoid disqualification. Oh, and did we mention that Bordeaux temperatures average an uncomfortable 75 degrees during this time of year?

Starting and ending in the small town of Pauillac, the route tours 59 châteaux and vineyards, including legendary first-growth Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Mouton Rothschild.

Winners of both the men’s and women’s races are rewarded with their body weight in fine Médoc wines. It sure beats a bottle of Gatorade and packet of mini pretzels.
