Tripe Iscariot was born out of the desires of Remi Guise to see more interesting wines on the market although his aim is certainly NOT to make weird wines! His very serious expressions of Grenache, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay are beautiful, textural, full of flavor. Join us in the Loft for a complimentary tasting and live jazz! Remi will be talking us through this delicious wines and his personal wine journey!
Like most other wines made in the Old World, Chianti derives its name not from the grape used to make the wine, which is Sangiovese, but from the region where it is made. The Chianti region is located in Tuscany, that romantic area of central Italy known for its sweeping landscapes, burning hot sun and its wealth of art and food history.
Why is Chianti more written about, drank, and talked about than any other Italian wine in history? Come down to The Wine Loft this Friday, 20 August to find out why!
Our small batch, artisan cheese is made from whole milk and cream that is sourced from dairy's in the southwest region of Western Australia. Unlike many other soft cheese that are sold too young and therefore chalky and solid - our cheese has been returned to the maturation room, to ripen. This extra time gives the cheese a chance to mature, meaning the center is a lovely pump, soft texture. Perfectly ripe and to be enjoyed now! Available from our cheese department in both half and full wheels.

Our florists have sourced the most beautiful, soft pink Peony Roses! These have been flown direct from the grower in Holland and are the last of the season. Peonies have been used and cultivated in China since early history. Ornamental cultivars were created from plants cultivated for medicine in China as of the sixth and seventh century. Peonies became particularly popular during the Tang dynasty where they were grown in the imperial gardens. The Netherlands is the largest peony cut flower producing country with about 50 million stems each year! Pick up a bunch of these beautiful blooms from our flower department - wrapping is complimentary!
Fourth generation Stemilt cherry grower Kyle Mathison doesn’t just grow cherries, he works to grow the best tasting cherries that are worthy of being called “world famous.” A world famous cherry is one that explodes with flavor – sweetness, acids, and aromatics – in every bite, and leaves a person craving more. Kyle has grown cherries on Stemilt Hill in Wenatchee, WA for four decades. He is innovative, and willing to try just about anything if it means growing a better tasting cherry. This flavor-driven journey towards building memory and trust with you is what Stemilt cherries are all about.

Despite solid winemaking roots, Nic Peterkin was never going to rest on his family’s laurels. He created LAS Vino to forge his own path, and the results are testament to his drive and talent. Peterkin’s parents have been involved in the wine industry from the pioneering days in Margaret River. His mother Shelley is a daughter of Di and Kevin Cullen. His father Mike was one of the few qualified winemakers working in the region in the 1970s and 80s, and founded Pierro. For young Nic, the everyday life of the winery was part of the backdrop against which his life was played out.
LAS Vino owns no vineyard, choosing instead to scour Margaret River in search of parcels of fruit that suit the stylistic direction Peterkin is chasing. Peterkin’s winemaking is very much from the soft-touch school, gentle handling of the fruit, minimal manipulation of the wines, allowing the inherent flavours and textures to shine.
