The Perfect Mix Pack
Some wine enthusiasts will buy just a few bottles, but the true devotees will purchase a few cases monthly. The Winery Lane marketplace is growing so are the choices you have.
The choices can get overwhelming as the number of options increases. Worse, you may overlook the perfect wine for you. This guide was created to help wine lovers build their perfect case.
You don’t want to buy top-of-the-line wines for your cellar, but you want to have a dozen quaffers to share with your friends over the month.
Except for the Robert Steinrum Cask Tawny (375ml), every wine bottle at Winery Lane contains 750ml of pure decadence. The 6 pack you are buying has four and a quarter liters, and the dozen is 750ml.
A dozen bottles won’t last for long if you have a few friends over. This is especially true if you don’t use standard 150ml pours.
(Have you all ever seen the size of a Plumm Shiraz glasses? We’ve heard that half of a bottle can fit in there.
Thanks to our partnerships, we are blessed with a wide range of wines and wineries across the country. Winery Lane offers everything from Shiraz, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Fiano, Montepulciano, and Nebbiolo.
When creating your last case, there are three things you should consider. What are you most drawn to? What are you looking for? How adventurous are you?
- “I have a barbecue at my house, where all my colleagues will be. Just a few red and white.
- I need a case with essentially everything. “I always have friends, and they all have different tastes.”
- “My friends and I are starting a wine-tasting club. I need to bring something unique.”
- “I have a date; they are the ones. I am certain of it. I must bring my A-game.”
- “I have a collection of wines and want more than just a drink.”
The final question is the most important. What amount do you want to spend?
Five levels of wine boxes have been created for each level. Each case contains 12 bottles.
*Don’t forget to take 20% off your purchase of twelve or more items on the site.
The “Begining of Your Journey” case is $150-$200
This one is easy. To complete a barbeque with friends, you will need six reds, four whites, and two sparkling bottles.
We recommend looking at the Amelia Park 2016trellis Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Castelli Estate 2016, The Sum Shiraz.
The “I like to play it safe but let’s try something new” case is $200 – $350
This wine collection includes wines from well-known Australian grape varieties that you know and love. These wines are unique because each has a distinct quality that is different from other bottle bottles at the bottle shop. The Envoi Wines 2015 Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc Semillon wine had its Semillon portion aged in oak barrels to give it a depth and texture that is rare in this style.
Another interesting and complex wine is the Eden Road 2016, The Long Road Pinot Gris. This Australian favorite has a twist. Eden Road winemakers leave the wine on the skins for longer than usual to give the wine a soft texture and a beautiful pink color. We recommend the 2015 Long Road Syrah. This Shiraz is made in the French Syrah style. It is lighter, more delicate in weight and has a greater focus on the bouquet.
Other additions include Envoi Wines 2015 Margaret River Chardonnay and Amelia Park 2013 Trellis Cabernet Mellot.
The “I Want to Find the Wines That I Can’t Find at Bottle Shops” Program: $350 – $400
