I have a soft spot for the wines and winemakers of the region where I grew up, and after meeting Craig Underhill of DiscoverVin via Twitter, who is based in my hometown, I was curious about what kind of wine importer would base themselves there.
DiscoverVin import wine from the Bordeaux and South West Regions of France and rather than focusing solely on classified wines, they instead search out wines that they feel offer quality and value for money, many from independent, organic or bio-dynamic producers. They then go one step further and provide very helpful advice on selecting wine to suit your tastes.
On his mission to introduce more people to these fantastic wines, Craig and DiscoverVin are hosting a wine dinner in Brisbane this Thursday 16th at C’est Bon Restaurant in Woolloongabba with a fittingly French menu and matched wines. You can find more details on the DiscoverVin website. There’s still a few spots available and you can contact Craig to book on 02 6020 6016.

Thanks so much for these kind words. We are a small team of myself (Craig), Helen & Mary. We lived, worked and traveled for 6 months in the south-west of France in 2009 and when we got back to our beautiful part of the world we realized that we were missing some great value wines- so we decided to bring them to Australia. The wines we import are different varieties, different tastes but always quality and value for money. Many French are rediscovering the quality and value of this region. We would love to see some of your followers on Thursday at C’est Bon.
Aaaah.. what fabulous sounding wine! And.. you grew up in the South of France? How did you end up here?!
No – I grew up in Albury/Wodonga where Craig’s business happens to be located. Not quite so exotic as the south of France!
