“Life can pass you by… Don’t forget to stop and smell the Rosés”
Back in June, I headed along to the Sidegate Wines Art Series launch party where I was introduced to Georgie Orbach and her wine range. It was lovely to meet winemaker Georgie and when the team recently approached me to try their latest Rosé, I couldn’t help but say yes.
We finally cracked into this Mino + Co Shiraz which I picked up for a bargain price of $10 at the end of the Wine Island weekend with @travelling_piccolo last year. It normally retails for $20!
It’s made in NSW’s Riverina region which is centred around the town of Griffith, down near the bottom of NSW. It’s closer to Melbourne than Sydney however Canberra would be the closest major city. Continue reading →
I came across some fantastic wines on Wine Island Festival and this is one of them! We were also lucky as in the last session on the Sunday they were trying to move the stock so I bought a couple of bottles for $10 reduced from $20.
This Chardonnay from Mino & Co (also the guys behind Signor Vino) is part of their ‘a growers touch’ wine range. It celebrates the farmers who grow their grapes and emphasises the importance of terroir. The hands pictured on the bottle are those of Dino Salvestrin, a long time grape grower for Mino & Co. There’s a great little story on the back label.
