When Drnks launched nearly eight years ago, it was one of Australia’s first online platforms to fill a much-needed niche: selling tasty, small-batch, organic or biodynamic wines with little to no additives from family-owned producers.
The market has changed a lot since then, with more online shops, bottle-os and stores carrying hard-to-find natural wines. But Drnks easily remains one of the best.
In good news for vino fans around the country, it recently introduced free shipping to all capital cities and most regional capitals (although you can still get free freight anywhere else for orders above $99).
And in even better news: Drnks and Broadsheet want to send you a free pack.
Hand-curated by owner Joel Amos, the pack includes five wines and two fun condiments. There’s a light, dry white called Limbo Bianco made from organic fruit in the Riverland, SA; a Nestarec Youngster drop from the Czech Republic that Amos calls a “wild but not too wild white”; a 2020 Chateau Acid Rosato from NSW, made with ancient basket-press techniques from a mix of grenache and syrah; a Drnks collab pinot with Commune of Buttons in the Adelaide Hills; and Momento Mori’s Etc Etc, a versatile and friendly red from Heathcote in Victoria.
As for the food inclusions – from the site’s selection of “not drnks” – there’s Gin Mayo, which is what it says on the tin: a gin-infused mayonnaise with Dutch spirit Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin; and an anchovy and chilli oil by Lulu’s Remedy, handmade in tiny batches in Sydney’s inner west – slather it on toasties, eggs, a rice bowl, or stick it straight in your mouth.
One winner will be chosen from each of Broadsheet’s cities: that’s a pack each for Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.
