Here at Liquor Barons, we work to range the best of the west, wherever we can. This led us most recently to Sittella, in the Swan Valley
If you’re at all familiar with the modern graphic artwork of Ash Schmitt, you’ll know he has a thing for Kanye. Names like Ye, Action Ronson, the LA Lakers, Trump (yes, even that bloke), Robert De Niro, John Travolta, Napolean Dynamite and Dennis Cometti and more pop up with entertaining regularity… so much so we couldn’t resist asking him to design some wine labels for us.
If you extended your long weekend this weekend (or are planning on making the AFL/NRL GF an extra big one), you're not alone. Aussies pull a stunning 90 million sick days a year, with survey results showing that only 52% are genuinely sick. 81% of us have at some time or another, 'chucked a sickie'.
The Tour de France is almost over for another year, and although it looks like the plucky Welshman Geraint Thomas is going to end up in the middle of the podium, nothing is a done deal. Will the previous winner and favourite Chris Froome beat him to it? Hard to say… he’s got a big time difference to overcome if he can. Find out our Top 5 Drinks for the podium finish…
Today we're in Loire Valley, pronounced 'lu-are' if you want to sound like a fancy pants later when you talk to your mates about the Tour. We bloody love this region, and we've made some Oz similar suggestions, but if you can get a real deal Frenchie wine from one of our specialist wine stores, do yourself a favour and try one on for size - you won't be disappointed.
