Hi <<First Name>>,

What a crazy, fun-filled month we've had and it's only going to get busier as we gear up for a huge summer of events! 

Earlier in September, we were stoked to be a part of Triple J's One Night Stand in Lucindale and what a treat for Kate and Em who were lucky enough to run into musician G Flip on their way home. 

A huge congratulations to the organising committee, Naracoorte Lucindale Council and the Lucindale Lions for a successful event which raised more than $22,000 for the Stand Like Stone Foundation - wow! 

Thanks to the Lucindale Hotel for putting on a great after party, highlighting up and coming local bands.

Be quick! Strictly limited tickets remain.

How long does a Coonawarra Cabernet age?
Better than any Cabernet in the world!

You heard it here first! Coonawarra Cabernet is built to age, and this October we celebrate this great grape variety with Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations. The region will be buzzing with food and wine tastings and special events.

Check out our short video we made – where I explain why and how Coonawarra Cabernet ages so well. 

To see what's happening all October visit

Our pick of the month: The Head Honcho, Coonawarra Cab 2015

What better way to celebrate Coonawarra Cabernet month than with a bottle of our highly acclaimed Head Honcho. Aged for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels, only the most complex flavours from the finest barrels were selected. 

This year only 3 barrels made the cut, creating only 100 cases, with only 888 bottles being released. The barrels have integrated beautifully in this wine. This limited release features the darkest of dark berries; blueberry, cassis, and molasses over mint. The Head Honcho will age well until 2042.

A Toast to Vegan Wine & Treats
All October, in our Cellar Door 

To celebrate Coonawarra Cabernet month we are offering a $15 tasting experience. Visit our Cellar Door during the month of October and try a delicious sugar free and vegan treat thanks to just frank - a local vegan enthusiast and whole food plant based chef. 

Try them matched with a selection of our vegan friendly and organically grown cabernet wines.

Feature Artist
Aron Can

Almost unknown outside his home country of Iceland, this guy is the epitome of new cool, doing the slow beat hip-hop to rival (and sometimes even better than) Post Malone. Singing in his Icelandic, it adds an exotic angle to some amazing songs. Highlights: Fullir Vasar. 
Found on our Koonara playlist here

Feature Wine
Spider Bill Wines Adelaide Hill Syrah

I had the pleasure of trying this tremendous wine at the Retts Ball in Adelaide recently. Luscious, smooth and elegant, and $30 is really quite cheap for this small producer quality.
