About

About The Wine

The Chalmers family are largely responsible for the boom of Italian grape varieties in Australia, and their Montevecchio range is all about utilising their nursery of varieties to create approachable, no-fuss blends for easy enjoyment.

This 'Bianco' is a co-fermented field blend of Vermentino, Fiano, Falanghina, and a dab of Moscato Giallo - all from the Chalmers Heathcote vineyard.

It's fresh and fruit-driven but with ample savoury nuances, with these three Italian grapes working very nicely in unison.

This is very solid value for money.

About Chalmers

No family in Australia has done more for the continued emergence of alternative grape varieties than the Chalmers.

Since the mid-1980's Bruce and Jenni Chalmers have been responsible for importing up to 70 alternative varieties into Australia, culminating in them establishing the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show in 1999.

They are true visionaries of the Australian wine scene and we are eternally grateful for their forward thinking and courage to bravely plant what no one had planted before them.

They brought with them the first ripples of the tsunami of Italian varieties hitting the Australian market.

Too sweet for me personally

Quite sweet but given that, it’s still quite tasty. Heavy pineapple and passion fruit with subtle musk that balances the flavours. Must be drunk with food if you don’t enjoy sweeter wines.

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 1300 668 385 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).
