About The Wine

Produced by the winemaker behind the famed wines of Mirafiore and Fontanafredda, this is a delicious little Langhe blend that gives you the personality of Piedmonte at just a snip of a price.

This is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbaera - the region's two hero red varieties - with a mix of traditional and modern winemaking techniques used during production.

It's an unpretentious and totally smashable entry point into the wines of the region, both earthy and brightly fruited. 

If you need some quaffing table reds and you love the Piedmontese vibe, buying just doesn't get much better than this.

The Wine Front

"A reliable performer, with packaging that’s second to none when it comes to claiming shelf space, or looking sophisticated on the table... Rich, liquorice and suede, dark cherry and dried rose perfume, some spice. It’s fleshy and savoury, invariably a little rustic to taste, but in a good way for a wine that’s made to be enjoyed with gusto as a youngster. It has freshness and energy too, given its scale, and finishes dry and savoury. It delivers." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Delicious

This wine has a really unusual smoky flavour, not sure whether this is typical of Nebbiolo, but I love it.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
