About The Wine

The Couvent Rouge winery is located in the depths of the Bekka Valley, just outside of a small town called Deir El Ahma.

As part of a program to move local farmers away from farming cannabis, farmers are encouraged to move into growing grapes instead. A collective of grape-growers in the area have converged into a cooperative by the name of “Coteaux d’Héliopolis”.

This wine comes from that cooperative. It's a blend of the local grape variety, Obeidi, and Viognier.

It shows ripe stone fruits such as peaches, apricots and a touch of white flowers on the nose. This finish is crisp and clean. Though you may never have heard of Obeidi before, you will likely find this wine oddly familiar.

DDS review

"Very light body and medium acidity, this elegant wine is an easy to drink staple. Bringing florals and green fruits on the nose. Featuring Obeidi, the native Lebanese indigenous grape paired with Viognier, this wine will slide down deliciously no matter what its paired with. A great introduction to something new & different but oh so delicious!" - Vins du Libian, importer

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 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).
