About The Wine

This is something out there from the Billy Button camp!

Verduzzo originates from Friuli in North-East Italy, but it's pretty much an unknown quantity here.  Jo Marsh, head-honcho at Billy Button, describes it as "The red drinker's white, a full bodied style with structured phenolics." which sums up the variety's character quite nicely.

This is a wonderfully savoury and structural wine with a completely unique set of flavours. Each iteration from Jo has been better than the last as she becomes more familiar with this variety. The 2016 is no exception.

If you're looking for a food-friendly wine with a point of difference to wow your dinner guests, this is a great option.

The Wine Front

"It’s floral, spicy and inviting. Heaps of aroma, heaps of flavour and heaps of texture. What’s not to like? Honeysuckle, apple and perhaps even some white pepper. It kicks with flavour. It’s great to drink." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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).
