About The Wine

Sitting somewhere in the realm of roses and skinsy wines, this light and smashable little number from A.R.C. is truly one unique drop.

Pinot Gris fruit is taken from the Wild Dog Vineyard in Warragul, grown with organic principles. It then sees 100% skin maceration, giving the wine an inviting pink hue.

There's a tremendous amount of floral lift to the nose, with herbs, citrus and red fruits partying altogether. Beautifully textured from the skin maceration, it's full of unexpected surprises. A wine that truly titillates, it's best shared in good company.

About A.R.C.

James and Jess were two Melbourne somms who decided to start growing the stuff rather than pouring the stuff. A small family and a small wine label has emerged.

They've leased a small biodynamic vineyard just outside of Warragul and have launched and interesting, eclectic label - A.R.C. or A Random Collection.

The wines are grown with love and respect for the local floral and fauna is at the front of mind. This colourful collection of wines are built for drinking young and enthusiastically. Jump in.

From The Producer

Is it a rose, is it a white or is it a red?!

All we know is our pink maceration has sure stolen our hearts and was our favourite wine to make this year. Who said you can’t have a favourite child? 100% skin macerated Pinot Gris, this wine has notes of eucalyptus, orange blossom, and raspberry. On the palate drinks almost like a light red. It’s versatile and completely unique.

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).
