Your House Red: Tocado

A house red should tick all the boxes – ripe and generous but not too heavy, crowd-pleasing yet authentic, works beautifully with burgers, sausages, meat and cheeses – and you’ll find it all in Tocado from Spain. 

“It is a delicious glass of wine that tastes way above the price tag and comes with a pretty slick label," says Igor Ryjenkov, Old World Wines buyer and Master of Wines (MW). “It’s basically a one-stop solution for those who enjoy wine and enjoy entertaining but don’t have the time or inclination to fuss over the next wine to buy. It’s an all-around winner you’ll be proud to serve.” 

Serve it with Spiced Olive & Chorizo Torta Bites for an easy get-together with Spanish flair! 


Available in cases of 12 x 750 mL bottles (online only). 


Your House White: Robertson Winery Chenin Blanc

For a great house white, you want something easy-going and versatile, with lots of depth, ripe fruit flavours, and crisp, balanced acidity. Enter Robertson Winery Chenin Blanc.

“We were wowed when we tasted this wine," says Marie Cundari, New World Wines buyer. “Chenin Blanc is a versatile grape with lots of history, particularly in France’s Loire valley. Over the years, the grape found a home in the vineyards of South Africa, which is now its largest grower and producer. It’s a great varietal for customers who love Pinot Grigio but are looking for something different. It’s lovely to enjoy on its own, or can be paired with a wide variety of foods. Try it with fresh seafood, curried chicken, or pulled pork tacos.”


Delicious with Salmon Fillets with Herb Vinaigrette.

Available in cases of 12 x 750 mL bottles (online only).
