This year we celebrate two incredible milestones in the life of Wirra Wirra. It’s 125 years since we were “born” by Robert Strangways Wigley, and 50 years since we were “born again” by Greg Trott, to paraphrase an old Church Block slogan.
In the wine world, it’s not that often you get a chance at a sequel. To start all over again some 40+ years after the fact and rather successfully at that, is pretty much unheard of.
But Wirra Wirra has rarely followed convention…
One thing’s for sure, if you follow us, by year end you will be left in no doubt that we know how to mark an occasion. In the works we have the biennial Bell Ringer dinners; a lunch during the McLaren Vale Sea and Vines Festival; a one-off Festival of Wirra Wirra at the end of August; the release of very rare and special new wine, The Holy Thirst and even a book, that will all tap into the quasquicentennial and golden anniversaries theme.
As always, we’ve also included some exclusive Easter offers for our Bell Ringers, which you can shop via the newsletter, online or by calling (08) 8323 8414. Be sure to order by Friday, 5 April so that the postie can beat the Easter Bunny to your door.
