About The Wine

Tim Ward is one of our Pet Nat faves so it's always a delight to see what fun he is having with fizz.

Here we have a blend of Lambrusco's Salamino and Maestri varieties (yes, it would seem there is more than one variety of Lambrusco!) with a glug of Shiraz for kicks.

The wine has a really soft & creamy bead that makes it a joy to drink, the fruit is dark and earthy with tart cherry and some ferrous notes too.

Deliciously different sparkling from a producer with his finger on the pulse of all things Pet Nat.

About Tim Ward Wines

Tim Ward had wanted to make wine since the age of 23. Being from Brisbane, a beer-loving city, he wasn't presented with many opportunities to pursue his desire. He then enrolled in wine studies and moved to Melbourne to explore a life in wine.

After honing his craft across the globe, he's now found himself back in the Yarra Valley. Tim focusses on making small batch, artisan wines with minimal interference and a gentle touch.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Tim Ward is one of the great pet nat, naturally sparkling wine producers in Australia – really knows his craft. This is the dark lambrusco sparkling, and, geez, we lost over two thirds of the wine to one of the most violent gushing incidents I’ve seen. Unusual for wines from Tim… Creamy, soft mousse with light, fine bubbles. Tart cherry and stewed berry notes, some game meat and ferrous earthiness in both scents and flavours here. Quite simple, a bit diffuse and yet very, very savoury. Needs some hearty, greasy food. Hopefully your bottle holds better."- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
