Yarraman Estate is an Australian winery with a distinguished history and an international reputation for outstanding quality wines. Located in Australia’s oldest wine growing region, the Upper Hunter Valley, the region boasts a history of viticulture and wine making dating back to 1825. The Estate vineyard was originally established as the famous Penfolds Dalwood Estate in 1958 by the founder of Grange, Max Schubert, and McGuigan winemaking patriarch, Perc McGuigan with Shiraz vine cuttings from the Magill vineyard and other varieties that were little known at the time.We're really new (isn't everyone?) to this social networking gig.

I agree, Matt. These days of extreme discounting by the major retailers with 80% Fosters brands on their shelves, not to mention the brand-crucifying efforts of online box movers offerring 2 for 1 $50 case deals (for wines reportedly retailing at $50 - yeah right) are killing the rest of us. You hit it right on the mark with the 'sales not justifying the cost'. That's why we don't sell direct from our own websites, E-commerce costs added to shipping would take us out of the game. I am sure I speak for all of us winemakers when I offer you deepest thanks for this initiative as it is now - giving us the chance to reach more consumers.
