About This Wine

Gamay from Savoie is a bit different in style to the majority of French Gamay we see here in Oz. A bit more crunch, aromatics, and succulence than Beaujolais it seems.

Not better or worse, just a little different, like twins separated at birth and raised in different cultures.

With pretty fruit aromatics reminiscent of strawberries and raspberries, there is also a deeper animale character on the palate as well, wild and untamed, this is an intriguing and seductive offering.

About Quenard

Quenard is a family estate in Savoie founded in 1976 - Andre and Michel Quenard are part of a lineage of winemakers dating back to the 17th century.

With their vineyards on the hillside of Tormery adorning the rocky mountain of Chignin, they produce a range of white, red and rose wines that are original and unique.

Farming by the 'lutte raisonnee' philosophy (intervention only when needed), they limit their yields, while harvesting manually and utilising traditional vinification methods.

    Classic Savoie Middle Bodied Red

    This is a good example of the one of the main red varieties grown in Savoie. Lighter than many Australian reds and similar to a Pinot, it’s a great food wine.

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).
