Wine Direct Wine Fundraiser
December 31, 2018
We have made the greatest of friends with SA's fiercely independent, family owned and operated wine store - WineDirect.com.au. They have been bottling up deals for us all year which we have been incorporating into our events, and they were instrumental in helping us pull off our first & hugely successful Distinguished and Distilled event in McLaren Vale. They rock!
Matt, Ali and the team are too good to keep to ourselves and they have created a deal that not only connects you with their outstanding wine selection and their 'hip pocket saving' prices, but for every pack of 12 purchased, WineDirect gives either a donation or credit back to the Centre.
Follow this links below to get started on this little fun - wine - raiser! There are packs available with donations ranging from $20 to $50, which includes free freight to anywhere in Australia if your order is for 12 bottles or more.
Our wine guru, Ali Kerr is awesome so if you have any questions - just hit her up either by email or by phoning Ali on 8352 3094 or 0418 831 596.
We're passionate about our wine here at WineDirect.com.au. We live, eat and breathe wine… we even drink it… lots of it. We also write about it for national publications, judge it for wine shows... and when it comes to the wine for our store, we put our livers on the line, tasting hundreds of wines each week to ensure the wines we offer are top quality and excellent value. We don't own wineries, relabel the wine then pass them off as unbelievable deals to you - we taste what is currently available and let you know about the good stuff... be it belters from brands you know and love or quirky gems from tiny quantity, independent producers...
It all started about 20 odd years ago when Managing Director, Mark Pradun owned the bottle shop on Henley Beach Road next to the Squash Courts (the Squash Courts haven't changed, but like many other bottle shops, this one was taken over by a mob that sells groceries and petrol and subsequently shut down). What Mark found was that many of his regular customers would call up and say, "Mate, just put a dozen red together for me and can you drop it off on your way home?". Inadvertently this was the birth of the direct wine sales model we use today.
Fast forward a couple of decades and Mark still gets the same phone calls from the same customers (some of these old-timers haven't yet mastered email). The fact that we have been able to retain these original customers (and many others along the way) is testament to the high quality service we provide and that our customers trust us with what we recommend. We stand by the wines we select.
