Be ad­ven­tur­ous in 2017

Central and North Burnett Times - - CLASSIFIEDS -

IF YOU are like most wine buy­ers you will of­ten scan the shelves at your favourite out­let and then go back to a la­bel you are al­ready fa­mil­iar with.

Just some­times you’ll stray from what you al­ready know and that’s usu­ally be­cause of a spe­cial price.

With that in mind I’d like to of­fer you six new la­bels to add to your favourites as we start 2017.

All the fol­low­ing va­ri­eties are avail­able at BWS and Dan Mur­phy’s.
