We love pairing wine and food, and one of our favorite wine regions is Australia. Our hearts go out to the people of Australia as they fight the 2019-2020 bush fires, and in particular, our hearts go out to the firefighters who have been tirelessly fighting these fires. To show our support for the people of Australia, we decided to donate 10% of the revenue from sales of Australian wine between 1/13/20 and 1/26/20 to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service. The NSW RFS is a volunteer firefighting agency that has been battling the bush fires in the southwest of Australia, and our donation will help their emergency efforts.
Thanks to your support, over the donation period, we sold 55 bottles of Australian wine, which isn’t bad at all considering the horrible weather we’ve had! We rounded up the dollar sales to a nice, round number, and we’ll be donating $75 to NSW Rural Fire Service. We’re proud to be able to chip in a bit, and if you’d like to help, you can donate on their website by clicking here.
Are you curious about the most popular bottles of Australian wine? Here are the top sellers:
- Woop Woop Cabernet Sauvignon – for just $9.99 this is an absolute bargain. It is a richly flavored Cabernet with dark berry flavors. It finishes smooth – not super dry, and is great with grilled steaks or burgers.
- Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon – this is one of our favorite Cabernets under $20. The Mitolo family uses a unique production method to give this wine a velvety smooth texture. It’s also great with grilled beef dishes!
- Yalumba ‘Y Series’ Unwooded Chardonnay – a crisp and clean Chardonnay without heavy oak or buttery flavors, this is a perfect pairing for grilled chicken dishes.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in this promotion – we appreciate your support!
