Using a staff meeting as an excuse to check in on some of our precious museum wines! 🙌🏽
All holding up well. 02 was a standout vintage for McLaren Vale. 2009 was the first release of the DJ Cabernet, a crowd favourite!

We are happy to announce that our second batch of ‘Quince Gin’ is coming soon. Priority will be given to our OTT club members for the first week of July. If we have any left, it will be available on our website from the 8th July.
This limited edition is in short supply so I know what I’d be doing!

Super discounts and first in line for all new and limited products. What’s more it’s super flexi and you can change your wine preferences whenever you like.

Vineyard Wednesday! This morning we were treated to a rainbow halo following some stormy days. 🌈 🌈
Pruning has begun however the Cabernet, Touriga and Grenache pictured here are still hanging onto the last of their leaves
Put your hands up if you have been patiently waiting for our sold out Fiano to return to our shelves 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏻🙋🏼♂️🙋🏾🙋🏻♂️
Well, wait no more. Prepare your palate for a textural journey with this Fiano. One minute it’s all pine nuts and cashew, the next it’s kaffir lime and fresh basil with a touch of the tropics. Drink with anything spicy, or just to spice up your life
Available online now, at our cellar door and at many legendary bottle shops and restaurants
Today we meet our wonderful cellar door host Vanessa. Coming back from maternity leave (and winning at the cutest happiest bubba life 👶🏻) our Vanessa is one of the best. With family in the wine industry & Italian heritage, there isn’t much she doesn’t know about vino 🍷
ROLE: cellar door host
GREW UP IN: Adelaide's eastern suburbs
SPECIALIST TOPIC: random general trivia! I love a bit of Trivial Pursuit!
GUILTY PLEASURE: @abba 😁 It gets me through good times, bad times.... and housework!
BEST WINE EXPERIENCE: my best experiences I associate with food. In Puglia we went to a little restaurant and had a bottle of the house red, divine!
Here at home I love Primitivo with a plate of homemade pasta I made myself.
FUNNIEST DAY AT WORK: we usually don't receive tips, it's not in our culture, but on this day we randomly received two for providing an excellent experience. First another team member, then an hour or so later, me! Mine was bigger and I got to lord it over everyone and the banter for the rest of the day was great fun!
PODCAST/BOOK/NETFLIX: podcasts- It depends what I'm doing. If I'm hanging out with my 10 month old son it's @historyhit Network (he doesn't get a choice yet)
If I'm driving then I like ‘Stories Behind the Story' or if I'm helping in the vineyards 'Philosophize This!' because leaf plucking and slashing (boring jobs 🙄) provide plenty of time to ponder the big questions of life!
Netflix- @shadowandbone & Superstore
Book- just finished 'The Scholar' by Dervla McTiernan, I would recommend
KYRPTONITE: Cotton Balls! They give me goose bumps. Thinking about them is not great either, I've already spent too much thought on them now!!!
WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT WORKING AT OT: it's such a supportive and laid back environment- you want to do well. The wines are great so I am super happy to share this with customers.
