About the Wine

If you’re after bright playful whites with interest and dazzle, look no further than Georgia.

The Sopromadze family are one of the oldest producers in the central western area of Imereti, an area noted for its stony, flinty soils. Limited skin contact and ageing in traditional clay kvevri means these are natural wines of lively freshness. They’re unfined, unfiltered and low sulphur and beautifully suited to the table

With its bright straw colour and tremendous energy, you simply must try this Tsitza.

About Gaioz Sopromadze

Located in the Imereti region, in the striking valleys of this eastern part of western Georgia. Lovingly known as the stomach of Georgia, in this food mad country, it's a nod to the region's exceptional produce and cooking.

One of the area's oldest producers, this tiny traditional family winery sits beside the Khanistskali River in the town of Baghdati. The winery was established in 1914 and survived Soviet rule. Gaioz's sons Lasha and Goga, are part of the new generation carrying the story of Georgia's remarkable wines.

Using only varieties indigenous to Imereti, these are natural wines that are unfined and unfiltered, with minute levels of added sulphur. Their lighter touch of skin contact in both reds and white, means these are wines bright wines, brimming with freshness beautifully suited to the table.

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
