Fancy a tipple or two in Canberra this weekend? Rare Vintage Ports available for purchase at TOTR

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

With Canberra recently rated the Most Liveable City, the wine and food producers of Rutherglen and the King Valley are packing their bags (and car-boots full of wine...) and heading to the great capital this weekend.

Over the years, we have learnt that Canberrans are some of our biggest VP fans. Perhaps it's the chilly winter nights? So this year, I have packed a box full of aged VPs. I have chosen some of the best vintages, as you can see from the trophies and gold medals below. Many of these vintages are almost sold out, particularly the 80s and, I feel, as 20-30 year old wines, they are truly superb value. Some red table wines easily fetch $100 and above. So why do we charge so reasonably? Because as one of Australia's best producers of Vintage Fortified, we want to give everyone the opportunity to share and enjoy this great wine style. Having them available this coming weekend is fitting in that it would have been Dad's 60th birthday on Tuesday the 8th of July and this was by far one of his favourite wines to make, drink and collect. See our Vintage Fortified page for more information on different vintages, otherwise I look forward to seeing you this weekend.

Cheers, Natasha Killeen
