About the Wine

Arneis has long been regarded as a relatively difficult variety to grow, as may be indicated by its name translating to 'little rascal' in English.

Alberto Oggero makes growing this variety look easy, though. The fruit for this wine comes from their Outsider vineyard, where 80-year-old Arneis vines grow interspersed with Nebbiolo vines.

The finished product is a homage to the site and these old vines; a deliciously dry white that pairs well with a wide variety of dishes.

About Alberto Oggero

Growing up, Alberto Oggero would often follow his grandfather Sandro through the vines

It sparked a life-long love affair with making wine from his home area of Roero. He studied oenology in Alba, gaining the technical skills to compliment his passion. And in 2009 Alberto took over his grandfather's vineyard, eventually fulfilling his long-time dream of restoring the old family house and cellar. 

He now lovingly tends to 3 hectares of vines across his home, producing wonderful wines from Nebbiolo and Arneis - in his words... "juice of the land."

From the Producer

Our work on Arneis begins and ends with one goal: to change our gaze on this grape variety, to let this variety evolve without too much intervention. For this reason the fermentation is natural, the intervention in the cellar is minimal and we wait for the summer to bottle it, without filtration or clarification.

It is our favourite experiment: we do it by harvesting some very old strains of white berries scattered in Nebbiolo vineyards. The result is a macerated wine closely linked to the sandy nature of the soil, with a wide range of flavours in the glass.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
