Times have turned to favour the Glug business. We have two avenues of supply, contracted grapes and small boutiques, often grower makers, offering us bulk as measured in barrels of wine, for example ‘we have five barrels of this quality to offer’.
We seldom purchase wines already bottled and or labelled as the prices have escalated plus bottling is a specialised business and we like to do this ourselves. These one-off purchases we may use in larger blends or in this case are bottled under a convenient label. Thus, there is no continuity of vintages such as found with our major brands such as Goat Square and Karrawirra.
Naturally the makers of these wines do not want details released which can be traced back to their winery. Offers of this style and quality are currently increasing and provide very good drinking for our customers.
