  • Pleasant Valley Strawberry Spumante has been the best sparkling wine that my friends and I have ever consumed. We love this champagne and we even began a bi-annual event call" the valley games" in tribute to the drink. We are horrified to discover that our south Australian suppliers have stopped selling this product. Currently we have 1 bottle ...

  • I have been purchasing the Pleasant Valley Strawberry Spumante for years now and have just been told by First Choice that it is no longer available. Is this permanent?? If NO will you keep supplying to this store and others? Sad loss if not available for myself and a friend of mine who brought this to my attention. On back of label your name is ...

  • I have recently seen some general headlines in the "health news" sections of various news sources.  Evidently, the WHO has declared alcohol unsafe in ANY quantity, and wants to discourage its use to ease the burden of public health cost/resources.  Like most medical studies, I approached this one with skepticism.  I subscribe to a medical journa...

  • I discovered in one of the James Busby bottles of Coconut Rum that you produce (white with pink writing of Coconut Rum on the label) a bug of some sort which either looks like a cricket, locus or moth of some kind when i poured a shot into a shot glass, i only had 1/4 of a bottle left so unfortunately that meant i had drunken 3/4 of the bottle f...

  • I was a fan of Fresh Dry White until Some casks had a dark colour and tangy flavour. It's too hit and miss. Great start just not consistant. Mike B Banksia Beach

  • I have been purchasing the Tangled Vine Estate crisp dry white recently and am getting concerned that it is a bit hit and miss, it would seem that every now and then the blend is off or not the same quality as I know it to be and the wine tastes disgusting. In the past month I have at least 3 casks that I believe to be off or not of the quality ...

  • I buy you Tangled Vine Estate soft fruity white, often. I find sometimes, it is hard to find on the shelves as it must be quite popular. I bought three casks, but when I opened and tasted each cask is off. I am not sure if the wine goes off in the heat but the wine I bought was disgusting. Three casks all off, how can that be? Not going to...
