Greetings - Wow 500 Cool Wine episodes - (who would have thought!)
Our good friend author Richard Flanagan – marks this occasion
In a world where the web is now a byword for white supremacism, identity theft, trolling, manipulation, and a certain psychic invasion; in an era where retail is increasingly dominated by a handful of large voracious companies who ruthlessly exploit both their suppliers and their workers; the Cool Wine newsletter arrives as the most wonderful anachronism each week, unable to track, interact or threaten your karma in any way. Artificial intelligence it is not. Rather, with a design that uses blue and red tones with all the subtlety of a police car in pursuit punctuated by a small forest of exclamation marks, it provides a simple listing of alcohol at surprisingly cheap prices, with a strong emphasis on the Tasmanian winemakers who Tim and Monica Goddard and the Cool Wine team support and promote.
And like a lot of other Tasmanians I support Tim and his shop, and if I am amazed that this is the 500th newsletter, and if I do normally prefer my literature a taj more complex, I still look forward to receiving another 500 and more in the same stark format, and scouring them for my next tipple.
To celebrate our 500th edition, every newsletter purchase over $100 will go into the draw to win 1 of 5 $100 Cool Wine Gift Packs, including a $50 gift voucher! Drawn Easter Saturday.
Simply reply to the newsletter with your order, or come see us in store with a digital or hard copy of your newsletter!
Free delivery for orders over $110 with 12km (approx!) of the city,
$6.50 for orders under $110 within same radius, $20 to most interstate spots.

2006 Kreglinger vintage Brut Magnums - exclusive to Cool Wine
This outstanding sparkling was a huge hit at Tasmania's sparkling event ‘Effervescence’.
With a Bollinger like 10 years aging on its lees, and disgorged by Natalie Fryar of Bellebonne fame (on her day job) it has a beautifully balanced palate, with melt in the mouth brioche notes. Still fresh with attractive acidity and obviously benefiting from living in a larger vessel (magnum =2 bottles), this is a super impressive feature wine for any upcoming wedding, party- anything!
We have landed a small supply of these gems, a steal at $140 each- or how about - 4 for $500.00! (note the thinly veiled 500 association!)
