Located in the Murrumbidgee River corridor, just outside the ACT, is the Nick O'Leary vineyard. His winemaking puts a focus on exhibiting the character of the region while still experimenting and expressing his own personality through each bottle and variety.

Coming from Canberra, it should come as no surprise he makes an absolutely cracking Riesling.

The Heywood Riesling is a single vineyard Riesling from Nick O'Leary - and it's blisteringly good, with a pure citrus character and a hit of fresh, green melon. A must for lovers of Canberra Riesling!

Halliday Wine Companion

"Comes out punching with apple and lemon flavours, a waft of blossom and a daikon radish savouriness. It's racy with bright acidity in the mix and finishes with terrific length." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
