I feel like there has been enough chatter about wine and we live in close proximity of a number of excellent wine regions

That we need a non pretentious wine thread.

My first question is what wine do you drink at the footy.

As for recommendations I'll start local with two go to wineries no one can go wrong with


An absolutely fantastic winery in Mclaren Vale.


A Barossa one.

Controversial maybe, but Frugal Farmer is my go to Rockfords

Post away.

Every day drinking wine... for great value for quality. Worth mixing the reds as all great... particularly the merlot has won awards.

Burke Salter - Greg & Jane are worth the visit if you are in the Riverland & get 13 for a dozen.

Will get belted by purists


But they make really drinkable wines, I'm a huge fan of their Nero D'avalo (edit and their Dolcetto )

Murray Street is another winery worth visiting in the Barossa.

Make some powerful reds. I have a good collection of their Shiraz Estate Greenock & Gomersal wines. Taste them at the same time when visiting as a great example of different characteristics of single vineyard wines. These are 10+ year to cellar for special occasions. Artisan range for those not wanting to spend as much, but still solid wines.

Look forward to hearing about it.
The better half is Finnish... mad F1 fan (though preferred Kimi) & loves SA wines... so his wine better be good as she will give him feedback lol.

We get 2 bottles of his wine each too... along with tasting Corrina's wines. She's a quality wine maker.

So will make a day of it in McLaren Vale... then follow up with Test Match.

That sounds like a ripping time.

Perhaps give a day to post your review 😬

Enjoying Coates 2017 Garden of Perfume & Spice Syrah tonight with Wagu Rump cooked on Weber.

If you haven't been to visit Coates winery, your must as Duane doesn't make a bad wine.
