Aluvión and Firedoor a match made in heaven December 08 2016 33 Comments
Our 2012 Aluvión Malbec Reserva has been featured on Sydney's Firedoor wine list throughout much of 2016.
Firedoor reminds us of some of the best food and cooking techniques in Argentina, so it was naturally a great fit for our wine. Firedoor's menu is powered by wood fire - 11 different types of wood to be exact. Australian Gourmet Traveller dubs Firedoor's food "a new kind of delicious born from the oldest of cooking traditions" and they have received a coveted chef's hat from both the 2016 and 2017 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.
As for the wine list, Australian Gourmet Traveller says, "they certainly know what they're pouring."
Firedoor's Sommelier, Miki, says the 2012 Aluvion Malbec Reserva is "rich, smooth and round, drinks easily and accommodates both men and women, and is a bargain for the price."
We have to say we agree with him.
Things are ramping up and we've even got our first wine dinner coming up. Our hope is to do these quarterly with some of our partner restaurants. The plan is to simply have fun - good food, wine, and great company. We hope you can join us!
UPDATE 30 JULY: Thanks everyone for the strong interest. Our dinner is sold out! We're looking forward to a lively night with our fabulous dinner guests. Like our Facebook page to be the first in the know for future dinners.
Beautiful tapas and wines on Blues Point Road...and they carry Aluvión Malbec too! July 20 2015 4 Comments
Delicado Food and Wines in McMahon's Point, Sydney is one of those special places that makes you feel as though you've been transported to another part of the world. Ben Moechtar's Spanish tapas restaurant, deli and bottle shop could easily be in Barcelona...or Buenos Aires for that matter. First, the relaxed, social environment and the food are fantastic. And as one of the most highly qualified and knowledgeable sommeliers in Australia, Ben has amassed an eclectic collection of wines from Spain, as well as other parts of the world. This has been a favourite place for Bob and me for many years and Ben was naturally one of the first people we approached with our Malbec. We were thrilled - and a little humbled - when he said he liked it and wanted to include it on his wine menu. Now I'm always happy to call Delicado because no matter who answers the phone they have only wonderful things to say about our wine! :)
Our Aluvión Malbec Reserve 2010 is available in Delicado's restaurant by the glass or the bottle, as well as for purchase through the bottle shop. My recommendation is you savour a glass while you sit at one of the tables on the footpath and imagine you are in Spain or Argentina.
Aluvión now available at Farmhouse Kings Cross July 13 2015
One of our newest restaurant partners is the delectable Farmhouse in Kings Cross. The food here is home-style and the set menu changes regularly while the atmosphere on the communal 22-person table is convivial - a celebration of good food, wine and friends. It reminds me of many meals in Argentina! I just knew our wine belonged here and when I approached Mike and Andy they bought some bottles on the spot. Their wholesome approach has been recognised and rewarded. They were bestowed with a coveted Chef's Hat by the 2015 SMH Good Food Guide and won Best Restaurant Design in the 2015 Eat Drink Design Awards. Salud to many great meals here in the future.

Chiswick's Garden Menu Ideal Match for Aluvion Wine June 29 2015
For the past several months, we have been enjoying a great partnership with CHISWICK, Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan's beautiful dining venue in Woollahra, Sydney. The emphasis at CHISWICK is on where the food has come from and how it is grown. They have an amazing kitchen garden where much of their produce comes from and when we were there recently we enjoyed slow cooked lamb sourced from the Moran family farm. It's a perfect match for a wine like ours which is produced as naturally as possible with deep respect for the earth, native vegetation, water sources and the produce.
We are also honoured to be included. The CHISWICK wine list received the 2013 and 2014 National Award for 'Best Small List' at Australia's Wine List of the Year Awards.
Do yourself a favour and visit Chiswick soon.
