Sensational Wines of South West France

Wine Tasting Masterclass Back by Popular Demand!

Discover the secret wines produced in the south west of France including the famous Bordeaux region. Craig Underhill from DiscoverVin will take you on a journey to discover great value wines that the French seem to be keeping to themselves! You will savour the exceptional wines of this region as we take a quick tour of the white wines of Bergerac and Jurançon and the red wines of Bergerac, Madiran, Saint Mont and Cahors. Learn about the indigenous grape varieties grown in these ancient wine regions and find a new favourite wine.

DiscoverVin was launched in 2009. Founded by Craig and Helen Underhill and Mary Harrington. After an extended sabbatical living and travelling through France they returned to Australia and decided to share some of their wine discoveries with Australian consumers. DiscoverVin focuses on wines that offer authentic French flavour and impressive quality, together with value for money. They have sought some of the best and most typical wines from areas known predominately to French connoisseurs such as Jurançon, Madiran and Cahors. Many of their wines are from independent producers and have travelled little outside of France. Several have converted or are converting to organic and/or biodynamic practices. Craig is passionate about the wines of this fascinating part of France.

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
