About The Wine

Adam Castagna is a force of nature, one of the most vivacious and charismatic winemakers in the Beechworth region.

From his home vineyard and winery at Castagna, Adam crafts a small range of wines called 'Adam's Rib'. There's a red and a white released each vintage. The blend is dependant on what fruit is offered up from the season. In 2014 the pick of the fruit was Nebbiolo and Shiraz. The blend works a treat.

Of the 2014 release Campbell Mattinson wrote, "the story it describes is about pure pleasure". An easier and more accessible wine than the more statue-esque Castagna range, this is the perfect entry point into the unique wine of this great family owned estate.

The Wine Front

"It fast builds momentum and never eases off throughout. Plenty of swish fruit here and the texture to go with it, but then the ropes come out and it’s all kept within a ring of fine tannin. Make no mistake though: this is a fruit-driven wine; the story it describes is about pure pleasure, in a dark berried and spice-strewn context." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

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 (policy here). We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on.

We Also Offer Volume Discounts. It works like this:

  ORDERS OVER $149 GET FREE SHIPPING

  ORDERS OVER $299 GET A $20 DISCOUNT

  ORDERS OVER $499 GET A $40 DISCOUNT

The discount will generally be applied to the first item in the cart. For very large wholesale or function orders (weddings etc) we are always happy to negotiate on a case by case basis.
