About The Wine

Justin Bubb was an Australian living and making wine in Italy for the famed Castello Di Gabbiano winery.

Luke Saturno, Justin's best friend from school and third generation Sicilian, was working in premium wine in London. When Justin decided to move back to Australia with his new wife Anna Pooley (Pooley Wines), Justin and Luke hatched a plan to bring well-priced, authentic Italian wines back to Australia. And Babo was born.

The Babo wines are made in a fresh modern style yet remain true to region and variety at the same time. These are good times wines made by a skillful winemaker from great fruit. What more could you ask for?

The Pinot Grigio is as fresh as a daisy - light, crisp, pure and pristine. It's a classic Italian style, with a little more power and weight than your run of the mill expression from Australia. It's delicious.

"Gee, they’ve done very well here. Green melon, pear, cut fennel. Cool feel, a subtle raw almond flavour, fine chalk dust texture, a smattering of perfumed green herb, and a long and lightly grippy finish. Top shelf." - Gary Walsh (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? 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 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com 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).
