The Bera Barbera d’Alba is a beautiful DOC red wine from the family-owned Azienda Agricola Bera winery in the Langhe area of Piedmont, Italy. The winemaking tradition goes back centuries in the Bera family with the basic philosophy always to maintain utmost respect to the tradition of the territory and to every manufacturing practice. With a great passion and a great desire to make high quality wines, all phases of the work are followed directly, from the cultivation and crushing of the grapes, to the bottling. This Bera red shows deep, rich fruit with great complexity and freshness. Deep plummy juiciness and concentration has been maximized whist retaining a savoury edge which makes it go so well with many foods, simple or rich. Open to taste in the Wine Loft all weekend!

Complimentary Tasting in the Cheese department
The Lingot d’Argental inherited its creaminess and ease of cutting from the Pavè d’Affinois. This cheese is produced near the Lyon region of France with milk which has undertaken a specific miro-filtration method to yield a silkier, creamier texture. It has a smooth, consistent paste and well rounded, buttery flavour. Its texture is especially mild and smooth, comparable to a triple-cream cheese. The flavour is fresh, delicate and melting. This cheese is a crowd pleaser!

AVAILABLE TO TASTE IN THE BUTCHERY ALL WEEKEND!
Jamón Ibérico is hailed as the crème de la crème of ham. The black Iberian pig, which is native to this region, is responsible for the tasty meat. These free-range Iberian pigs wander hilly, fields of oak and cork trees enjoying acorn-rich diets. From smell to taste, the acorns are the defining quality of a top-grade Jamón Ibérico. In addition to lending the prized pork its unique aromatic combination of sweetness, nuttiness, and earthiness, the oleic acid in these acorns makes for the soft, melty fat that makes Jamón Ibérico so divine. We will be tasting this exquisite ham in The Butchery this weekend - it makes for a luxurious addition to any grazing board!
Open to taste this weekend in the Loft!

Woodlands’ flagship estate-grown chardonnay. It is remarkably complex and charming for such a modestly priced Margaret River chardy, with creamy lees and refined fruit aromas. Oak is almost invisible. Intense and elegant in the mouth, it has a lip-smacking savoury finish. A totally delicious wine at a great price.

Skigh Wines 'Coda' Grenache 2020 - Skigh McManus has been a winemaker in Margaret River for more than fifteen years. With his eponymous label, Skigh is striking out on his own. There's some serious value to be had in his range and some curios for the more adventurous drinker. He sources quality fruit from some of the premier sub-regions of Margaret River and gets his wines to bottle with minimal intervention. This 2020 Grenache is fun, vibrant, and full of bright fresh fruit with a soft tannin, the perfect lunch wine!
This wine is a staple in the La Violetta range, and it remains one of our favourites.
As AJ explains, "Up is a suffix commonly found in place names in Western Australia’s south-west, meaning 'place of' in the indigenous Noongar dialect. This wine evokes the ancient granitic soils of its place of origin in the hills around Mount Barker."
This is a not-so-classic cool climate Shiraz here, all about perfume and spice and structure. It's as thought-provoking as it is delicious! Few winemakers bring as much creativity and flair to their label as the mercurial Andrew Hoadley. With a mischievous, child-like joy, he has set about crafting La Violetta, one of the most fascinating wine ranges in Western Australia, and indeed, the country. His wines are inspiring, each a creation all of its own. With a mix of single vineyard, single varietal wines and some exotic blends, these some of the most thought-provoking wines in the West.
