Fresh gear just in from @koernerwine 😍 Brothers Jono and Damon are making small batch lo-fi wine in the Clare Valley. With a hands off approach they let the fruit do the talking, producing just really good, highly drinkable booze. The Clare is a Syrah/Tempranillo/Mourverdre/Grenache blend. Expect vibrant dark cherry and red fruit, juicy acidity and some whole bunch spice. Super smashable stuff. 🍷

These monks know what's up. Turns out spending over 150 years brewing beer and making cheese produces world class beer and cheese we dream about. Huge turnout last night for the first-time in-a-decade tapping of @bieresdechimay Grand Reserve in Australia. The last keg of Grand Reserve is still on tap, with the full Chimay range in bottles. Available all weekend (or until sold out!) 🍻🧀
#unfiltered wine is best wine. Definitely not your classic Sauvignon Blanc, @chapter_wine is making juice free from any additives and preservatives. This is a zesty, oxidative and alive wine from the Yarra Valley. A little bit of funk, with a cool saline freshness. Actually can't stop drinking this. #winelife 🍷😍
So hard for my Chim-Bae @bieresdechimay right now. Popping bottles from 5pm. Chimay Blue on tap for the first time in over 10 years. We've got the rest of the range in the bottle. AND we're serving wheels of Chimay Red washed cheese also the first time in Australia. Chimay are coming to the party with glassware and merch to give away. #belgiumhouseparty #chimayblue #chimaywhite #chimayred #chimayblonde
Just a little something-something to get you through hump day. This is the Highlander, a crowd favourite of ours. Mixing up @laphroaig tiki-style with passionfruit, apple, orgeat & lime.
For the first time in over a decade, Chimay Blue will be available on tap in Australia. An iconic brewery, @bieresdechimay is one of only eleven Trappist breweries in the world, founded in 1862. Trappist beer is brewed exclusively inside Trappist monastery walls by the monks that live there. Any profit they make is donated to the community. Located next to the brewery, Chimay produce their own cheeses. We've managed to source some of their Trappist cheese, designed to pair perfectly with their beer. We will have the beer and cheese available from Thursday 15th, or until sold out! Grab yourself a ticket to secure a taste. -- Brand Ambassador Michael Lonard will be joining us on the night to talk all things Trappist, from history of the breweries to the styles of beer they make. Michael will be hosting a private talk at 7pm, which will include a tasting of the beer and cheese. Tickets available for $22 at https://www.trybooking.com/QMXF
Creek and Cella are proud to host winemaker and viticulturist @callumbeal, to host an evening discussing the workings of a vineyard, the wine making process, and what drives him to produce some of the most smashable gear in town. Callum will be pouring his Little White, Little Red, and a vertical tasting of three vintages of his flagship Merlot. The Creek and Cella team will be matching each glass of wine with a special something from our fridges. Tickets available for $40, in person at Creek and Cella, or @ https://www.trybooking.com/QKND --- Callum moved to the Adelaide Hills in 2006, where he immediately developed an affinity for the local wine industry. In 2007, he started working locally and enrolled in his Bachelors of Viticulture and Oenology at The University of Adelaide the following year. Since his first vintage in 2008, Callum has worked for some of the Adelaide Hills' best producers where he has learned his craft and developed his passion for certain wines and styles. (Barratt Wines, Alpha Box & Dice, Scott Wines, BK Wines). In 2010, his parents bought the family vineyard. Since then, the 28 year old vines have been tended to by Callum and his parents almost entirely by hand and with a focus on precision viticulture. Both of the Merlots produced by Beal & Co. are from the family vineyard in Neudorf Valley, Adelaide Hills, 452m above sea level on shallow, rocky soils. The focus for Beal & Co. is to make wines with purity, concentration, and style with an emphasis on site.
One of our favourites... La Dame is a semi-hard, natural-rind 2 year aged goats milk cheese from @barossacheese. A delicate combination of creamy nutty notes with a caramel twang. Perfect with a glass of dry Riesling.
