About The Wine

Sete (Italian for "Thirst") is a small three person crew out of the Amaseno Valley, about an hour out of Rome.

Emiliano Giorgi, Arcangelo Galuppi and Martina D’alessio are endeavouring to revive old local vineyards left to rack and ruin during an economic downturn in their region. Young heads servicing old vines, making wines without any additions in the vineyard or the cellar. Exciting times and exciting wines emerging. Some unique stuff here. Jump in.

This creation is 90% local variety Ottonese with a splash of Trebbiano and Moscato. Just a day on skins, this is the freshest and nerviest wine in their stable. It's a bit funky when first opened but after some air-time, it opens up really beautifully.

The Wine Front

"Lemon verbena and ginger whiffs, earthy notes, ashy whiffs and a load of wet herbs. Lemony-ginger tang to taste, tonic water licks, finishes nutty-savoury and dry-dusty with splash of lemon mineral water lingering. Nice juiciness overall, takes a bit of time to shake off its rustic charm start, but opens up nicely, while retaining its wilder edge. Delicious after 30 mins." - Mike Bennie (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 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).
