James Halliday 2016 Ratings Success

Thursday, August 06, 2015

Many moons ago when I was 16 and staying with a friend in Melbourne, I was invited to a dinner party where the host was apparently "a huge wine buff". I wasn't terribly interested in wine at the time, but then again, not many 16 year old girls are.

Easter Weekend at S&K

Monday, March 23, 2015

At special times of the year, including Easter and Christmas, we open a selection of Vintage Fortifieds at the Cellar Door to offer our customers a free, educational tasting of these fabulous wines.

Portuguese Trio Museum Release

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

When we released our Portuguese Trio in 2013, it was one of the first occasions that S&K had produced table wines using our extensive selection of Iberian grape varieties traditionally used for our Vintage Fortifieds (another occasion being The Prince Reserva blend of '08, '09 and '13). After their first popular release, we stashed away the remaining cases in our museum only to be used for special releases such as dinners, anniversaries and by request.
