Big discounts on South Australia’s best boutique wines

By doing so, you’ll help support small wineries in South Australia who have been massively affected by the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

As we’re all aware, tourism and hospitality have been hit hard by the recent restrictions due to COVID-19. One thing you may not be so aware of is the fact that many of our favourite small wine brands rely heavily on restaurant partners to buy and sell their wines. Without the restaurant trade, these small wineries have a drastically reduced source of income.

You see, restaurants buy wines in bulk at wholesale prices. These heavily discounted prices allow them to then mark up the wines, helping the restaurant turn a profit. The good news for the consumer is that, without the usual level of wine consumption in restaurants, these trade price dicounts are trickling down to the consumer.  

We’ve taken the time to collate a list of our favourite small South Australian winery producers who have passed on some big discounts directly to the consumer in an effort to keep the business afloat during these uncertain times.
