About

About The Wine

Gareth Belton is on the cutting edge of the natural winemaking movement. From the soil to the glass, every effort is taken by him and wife Rainbo to preserve the natural vitality of his organically grown fruit.

Here there's no sulphur, no additives, no fining. This is as un-doctored wine gets and it's a great thing to drink.

The Vin de Sofa is a pun on the French wine term Vin de Soif - "Soif means thirsty, sofa means chill". A wine of refreshment to drink anytime (sofa not necessary).

It's made from mainly whole bunch Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc with a dash of Gewürztraminer. Take Gareth's advice and pop this in the fridge for half an hour before drinking, it really comes to life with a chill. This fun, creative wine should be enjoyed with friends in the sun.

About Gentle Folk

Deep in the rolling vineyards of the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills lives Gareth and Rainbo Belton.

They are two of the country's leading experts in seaweed who caught the wine bug a few years ago and now run a winery making small batches of fun and creative wines with their friends in the Basket range. 

Gareth farms their three vineyards himself. He works organically in the vineyard and with little to no additions in the winery. The Gentle Folk wines have an energy and style all their own.

Made for drinking with friends and family, these are clean, unpretentious and delicious wines built for fun times. Get involved and be Gentle with each other.

DDS review

The tiniest little spritz over boysenberries, raspberries and red liquorice. It zips through the mouth on a joyous mission to be consumed. The chill does wonders. So yum. So vital and fresh, insanely drinkable and the perfect wine for warmer months. - Different Drop Wine Team

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).
