Wondering which wines are a winner this Christmas?

There’s 2 kinds of people in this world.

The first kind is the type of person who walks into the bottle shop with no clue what they’re going to buy. 

The second type…they know exactly what they’re there for, and they aren’t in this place to mess around.  


Regardless of which type of person you are, this article is for you! 

If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet our Business Development Manager, Courtney Stewart, you may be interested to learn that Courtney is a bit of a wine expert! 

And no, we don’t mean that Courtney is a self proclaimed wine expert who enjoys a glass or 2 on the weekends. Our lovely Courtney is an actual, real life, legitimate wine expert! 🍷

In her hospitality career, Courtney has studied a WSET Level 3, an advanced level qualification for hospitality professionals.

So…whether you are the kind of person who doesn’t mind browsing the aisles of Dan Murphy’s, or if you’re in there to get the job done and do it quickly…Courtney has rounded up her top picks for wine this Christmas for all budgets.
