Winter news and reviews!

(Originally posted on Thursday July 15, 2010. NB parts of this re-post have been edited)

July is here, and the past months have been very busy, in every way, for all of the people involved with the Collective. Pruning is well under way, some of our wines are being bottled, labels are being designed and in between, the jet-setting promotional work is well under way.

Tonight, Wayne from Smallfry Wines, and Steven from Kurtz Family Vineyards, are in Brisbane, probably sleeping by now, after an enjoyable evening at the 'Barossa in Boardshorts Event' held by Purple Palate and Bar Barossa.

Also, it has been the time for new releases and subsequent sending of samples to the press so here are a few links to the most recent reviews that some of the Collective wines have received. We are all incredibly inspired by seeing such encouraging reviews for our wines. Keep a watch, though, as there are many more reviews to come over the coming months:) Apologies for posting the links only, but there are far too many for me to add individually.
