The team at DiscoverVin would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy and successful 2014.

We would like to thank you very much for your support in what has been a successful year for our (still new) business. We hope that we have served you well and helped provide you with interesting and good value wines from Bordeaux and the south-west of France.

Some highlights for us this year have been:

  • nomination for the FACCI (French Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry) business awards.
  • providing wines for several festivals including Melbourne Food and Wine Festival (in collaboration with Bistro Vue), the Brisbane French Festival Ball, inaugural Bleu Blanc Rouge French Festival (Sydney), French Living Magazine’s Garden Party in Hyde Park, and Paris to Provence (Melbourne French Festival).
  • a multitude of press reviews for our wines including two “best imports” from Huon Hooke – Chateau Jolys Jurançon sec 2011 andProducteurs Plaimont St Albert Pacherenc-du-Vic Bilh 2009 
  • the rise and rise of rosé! The rosé revolution continues apace and we have been pleased by sales of our two exceptional rosé: Chateau La Rayre rosé 2012 and Domaine de la Croix 2012 (provencal cru classé) in 750ml and in magnum.
