As usual, Wine Club Members and partner are complimentary and guests are $25 each, charged to your card to confirm your reservation.

Due to the number of people attending, we are unable to admit anyone without a reservation so it is important that you let us know which party you will attend and who is coming with you by clicking on your choice from above or email Jen here

May Wine Club Special - Adore Rosé

May is the beginning of summer so here is a great summer special for wine club members. Adore Rose is a delightful blend of Pinot Noir and Grenache.

For $200 per case (plus tax and shipping where applicable) you'll receive 12 bottles of this crisp, summertime wine that pairs beautifully with a variety of tastes including paella, Mexican food as well as our Truffle Salt and Pipin' Hot Pepper Jam and Relish.

That's just $16.66 per bottle. With the fresh taste of summer this wine is so versatile it can be served anywhere from fully chilled to room temperature so act quickly before its all gone. Click here to order: Yes - I want some

Tasting Room Question ? ? ?

The most asked question in the Tasting Room this month has been about our Australian trip Oz Odyssey. Read our itinerary here or see some of the pictures taken by our Club Members on the trip here

The trip was fantastic with visits to some of our Sister Wineries in Australia where great winemakers, restaurants and chefs showed us their best. We have chosen the Bill's Cellar wines from several Sister Wineries and they are available to review here.

Those of you who have opted to receive an extra bottle each shipment from Bills Cellar will enjoy one each of these very limited wines as soon as they arrive from Australia. They will be shipped separately but don't worry, the shipping is on us. Thanks for your continued support.

We now move on to the 2014 growing season which is off to a great start but this has been forecast as an El Niño year so we all have our fingers crossed.

Enjoy your May wine shipment. We hope to see you over summer!

Dawn & Bill Williamson
