 July eNEWS


                A big welcome to all our new subscribers and thank you for taking the
                time to visit us at the Good Food and Wine Shows in Melbourne, Sydney
                                                                                                   This Month's Special
                and Perth this year! It was fun taking many of you through a Woodstock
                wine journey and showing you our latest releases. As always, the
                Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Woodstock Rosé were huge
                hits and we had lots of interest in all our reds and dessert wines. For
                those who purchased at the shows, we hope you are enjoying the wines.
                Do drop us a note if we can help with any information on the wines or if
                you would like to restock your cellar!

AN OLD FAVOURITE AT WOODSTOCK…                                                                       Restaurant Menu

              With a firm belief that wines are made to be consumed with food, the
              Collett family built Woodstock Coterie Restaurant in 1988. Scott’s love for
              nature ensured all significant trees were marked and a building designed
              to nestle amongst the towering century old gum trees, hence the Coterie’s
              unique semi-circle shape. Rammed earth walls were chosen to complement
              the landscape, glass doors and windows enable wide views to tranquil
                                                                                                    Function Packages
              native gardens teaming with birdlife and the occasional wondering koala.

              When the restaurant first opened, we served a Woodstock Regional Platter
              with a selection of local produce ideal for grazing over a few tasting
              glasses. Today, the platter is still a favourite among our regulars                Follow Woodstock Wine
              and we‘ve received plenty of reports that the much revered Woodstock                 Estate on Facebook
              Turkey and Muscat Paté, made from turkey livers sourced from the
              Fleurieu region and finished with our very own Woodstock Muscat, is still a
              highlight on the platter. We have had many requests over the years from           First Name
              diehard paté lovers. Next time you are at The Adelaide Central Markets or
              on The Parade in Norwood SA, do call into either Lucia’s or Norwood Fine
              Foods if you’d like to try some. Alternatively little tubs are available at our   Last Name
              Cellar Door for $9 each. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you ring
              (08) 8383 0156 and book ahead. They are made every Tuesday in our
              Woodstock Kitchen.                                                                Email

                        so it‘s a perfect wine to have on the occasional winter night to
                        warm the soul. Enjoy with a coffee, chocolates or cigars… and if
                        you are ever stuck for a dessert idea, grab some vanilla pod ice
                        cream, pour a shot glass of Very Old Fortified over and serve with
                        a smashed up Ferrero Rocher for an easy, delicious dessert!
