Portuguese Week at East End Cellars
This week we are featuring an array of wines from Portugal. In the Tasting Room we have several wines available by the glass, including red and white Vinho Verde's and a lovely red blend of native Portuguese varieties.
New releases from Ravensworth
Bryan Martin has quietly been going about his business in Canberra - day job at the iconic Clonakilla Wines and in his free time he has been building his own label Ravensworth Wines. We have always enjoyed the Ravensworth wines here at EEC, they have always been great wines that over-deliver in terms of value. The past two years things at Ravensworth seemed to have step up a few notches, and we're not just talking about the new labels... We were fortunate enough to try the new 2015 releases last week and can say with confidence the wines have gone up another level...

2015 William Downie Release
Earlier this week in the shop we hosted Bill Downie and we had the pleasure of tasting his new releases from 2015. From day one Bill's wines have been made to reflect their place of origin, with absolute minimal intervention in the winery and focus on the three regions and the vineyards where the grapes are grown; Gippsland, Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula. The wines have now hit the shop floor and our website and all three come with a very high recommendation from us...
For further details and our tasting notes, check out the range on our wesbite: 2015 WILLIAM DOWNIE WINES
Tonight from 5-7pm and Saturday afternoon from 2-5pm we have the one and only James Erskine and his Jauma Wines in the shop pouring his new releases.

Savoie & Jura Tasting
Tuesday 5th of April, 7:30 - 9:30pm - $40 - BUY ONLINE
The curiosity in these two regions of France has never been higher. The wines from the Jura grow in popularity every year and with this interest we are seeing some fantastic wines making their way to Australia. The interest in Savoie is still relatively new, but they have certainly hit the ground running with some fresh and vibrant wines.
This tasting will be mainly focused on the whites from both regions, including wines from Yannick Thonet, Domaine de Veronnet and Cave de Chautagne from the Savoie and Domaine Buronfosse from the Jura. From a crispy Jacquere through to a Vin Jaune we will cover the varieties, producers, and the winemaking. Plus we will have some nibbles, including a little bit of Comte cheese on the side, since we will be talking Jura...
Tickets are only $40 each, but seats are limited. To book your place you can purchase a ticket online, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Timo Mayer New Releases
It's almost impossible to ignore the man, the myth, the legend, that is Timo Mayer. His animated nature and cheerful personality are impossible to ignore, and these traits shine through in his wines too. Clever use of whole bunch, and a more hands-off approach in the winery also lead to brilliant expressive wines. The only issue with Timo’s wines… there’s never enough!
Four of our favourite's are below, or check out all the releases from Timo Mayer on our website: Timo Mayer

Out of Step Tasting
Wednesday the 3rd of February at East End Cellars, 5pm-7pm - FREE
From old school Yarra to a very much new producer from the region the very next night we have one of the winemakers from Out of Step wines in the shop. The Out of Step label started in 2012 and over the past few years we've been very impressed by their wines, including varieties that one wouldn't normally associate with the Yarra such as Nebbiolo and Grenache, plus they make a really great Savvy too! They have a great range of small batch wines, made to reflect their site and the variety but most importantly, be extremely delicious.
Please join us on Wednesday the 3rd anytime between 5 and 7pm to have taste, with wines available at special prices to purchase on the night.
