Willy Willy sums up all that we love about Aussie wine. It has bags of fruit flavour and character, is so easy to drink, and offers outstanding value for money. No wonder it has sat proudly in the upper reaches of our sales chart for nearly a decade.
"Smooth as velvet. It was lovely to take time drinking it just on its own"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
We’ve been buying from Bob’s Berton Vineyards since 2006 and working with him at other cellars for even longer. Why? Because he makes such deliciously fruity, well balanced wines, and always promises value too. No wonder his wines have such a loyal following among our customers. Take Willy Willy, year on year one of the bestselling Aussie reds in our range. This latest vintage showcases the brambly richness and sheer drinkability of good Aussie Shiraz. And the name? Willy Willy is Aboriginal for the dust storms that occasionally whip through the vineyards. This really is storming Shiraz, in every sense. Smooth enough to drink solo, it comes into its own with char-grilled meats or shepherd’s pie. Pour into large glasses and enjoy.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
