We are delighted to have recently purchased the La Barrique site, long one of the city's better fine wine stores, and we know we're going to get much enjoyment out of managing it and becoming a part of your community. We'd love to see you having a browse in here at the newly-christened Glengarry Bassett Rd - it'd be great to meet you. Glengarry was founded on many of the same principles that La Barrique was - an excellent wine selection, friendly and knowledgeable service and a pleasurable, convenient shopping experience.
Join us at the Bassett Road Wine Club as we explore a collection of Mt Difficulty wines with winemaker Matt Dicey. Situated in Bannockburn, a unique and rare area of extremes, Mt Difficulty has harnessed the once brutal terrain to produce premium wines at the forefront of Central Otago's wine production. We'll be tasting through everyone's old favourites (Pinot anyone?), but with a few exciting new releases sprinkled in there, not to mention the 2012 Long Gully Pinot Noir - a highly awarded single vineyard wine not to be missed!
Join us as we take a journey through our MIDDLE-EARTH wines with winemaker Ryan O?Connell. Located in Nelson, at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, the MIDDLE-EARTH vineyards really are in the centre of the land synonymous with the Middle Earth created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Creating wine that reflects the purity of this environment is a real passion for the family, who have been living on and working the land for over 50 years. The unique combination of local soil, crystal clear water, clean crisp air and hours of sunshine creates grapes that have few equals. It is this fruit that they take very special care in nurturing into wine deserving of the MIDDLE-EARTH label.
