Such a delicious drink, with lots of detail.

About This Wine

Inspired by the poet Allan Ginsberg, who coined the term ‘Flower Power’ for the counterculture revolution of the 1960s, this wine is about simplicity, and the immediacy of drinking now.

Very much an aperitif style of wine, it has the classic pale pink colour, with notes of tropical fruit on the nose followed by floral tones. Easy drinking, with crisp acidy and a happy mouthfeel. Lively fresh, with a touch of minerality.

Ginsberg once said; “You too must seek the sun" ... well, don’t mind if I do, especially with this wine alongside me.

About Podere 414

During the agrarian reform in 1960s Italy, families were given land which was assigned by plot numbers, hence the name Podere 414, indicating the block of land.

These families inherited totally wild and uncontaminated lands and they adopted a subsistence farming model to honour the traditions of the region.

In 1998 Simone Castelli, together with wife Mara, purchased the plot and set about planting the varieties most suitable to the character of Maremma.

Farming their vineyards organically, they aim to produce wines that are truly reflective of their site.

From The Producer

The name 'flower power' derives from the famous expression of the poet Allen Ginsberg coined during the period of the counterculture hippy of the sixties. It's a fun reference to a wine that is made to be enjoyed on the edge of a swimming pool or at a barbecue among friends. Made from 100% Sangiovese, this pale pink rosato has notes of tropical fruit and wild flowers, finishing crisp and refreshing.

The Wine Front

"A hippy theme for a Tuscan rose is kinda out there, but I am into it. Organic certified too. All sangiovese here. Delicious, easy to get stuck into style with dry, savouriness as a calling card. Cranberry and pomegranate juices co-mingle with light, woody spice, some fennel notes and a dash of white pepper. Juicy, yet tightens on a light coil of fine, emery board tannins. Such a delicious drink, with lots of detail." - 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).
