Just arrived in our Wine Loft - exclusive small size themed cocktail featuring Sardinian craft gin, vermouth and liqueur! It was the early 1950s when Silvio Carta founded the eponymous company in Baratili San Pietro! Now, after more than half a century, Silvio and his sone Elio still devote themselves to the production of London Dry Gin & Vermouth - the world smells of juniper, myrtle and citrus fruits from Sardinia thanks to the excellence of Silvio Carta!
Our produce department is now stocking Coolibah's organic range of salads, featuring: baby spinach, wild rocket & gourmet salad mix (baby spinach, chard, baby black kale & mizuna). We stock a range of Coolibah Herbs - Coolibah are specialists in the production of herbs. Their organic range is also of the highest quality possible.
Organic production employs strict controls on growing, harvesting and packing. The inherent difficulties involved in growing organic crops on a large scale sometimes prevents us from having continuous supply, but every attempt is made to ensure year round production of quality, healthy organic salads. All organic produce delivered conforms to ACO (Australian Certified Organic) standards for production and packing.
This week Tegan Blue plums are a stand out. Locally grown, this plum has a purple to red skin and juicy, yellow/orange flesh. This super sweet plum is at its absolute best. Simple eat on its own for a healthy snack, or cook these into a delicious plum compote to put ontop of vanilla icecream!

Pronounced “po-kay” - these hawaiian bowls combine the goodness of raw fish with the crunch of fresh salad ingredients and rice for sustenance. Traditionally tuna is the fish of choice, but we have mixed things up with salmon, tofu and chicken options available. With amazing flavours like edamame, kombu, seaweed salad and miso dressings added to superb fresh avocado, red cabbage, kale and lots more, they are packed full of fresh goodness. Our poke bowls are simple, fresh, and a great takeaway choice for those with health on their minds

We are tasting Sardinian DOC Vermentino & Sardianian DOC Cannouau from the Italian island of Sardinia!
The story of this winery is deeply connected to that of its founder, Antonella Corda who grew up among the vineyards in a family of winegrowers since generations. Her mother gave her a love for the land and her father instilled in her a passion for the job. Antonella became an agronomist specialized in wine-making management and inherited the family tradition in 2010. She took the winery’s reins in hand, transforming it into an ambitious and innovative project that did honor to its past: the creation of a boutique winery capable of producing fine Sardinian wines worthy of representing Sardinia around the world.
