Naked Wines Australia (by invitation)

Ahead of our road trip to Avenel to meet with winemaker Sam Plunkett next week, Naked Wines Australia sent us a lovely package of wines to sample.  Have you heard of Naked Wines Australia?  It's kinda like a collective of small, independent winemakers across Australia.  NWA buys the grapes from the winemakers upfront so that the small winemakers have financial security while they take the time to make great wine.  In turn, customers can purchase great wine directly, which is more bang for their buck.

With such gorgeous bottles of wine, we couldn't resist doing an impromptu photo shoot...

Jen Pfeiffer comes from a long family history of making wine in Rutherglen.  She's travelled the world to learn the craft and along the way she's won over 300 medals and 12 trophies... just to name a few of her accolades.  She's also achieved a few "firsts", including making Australia's first rosé liqueur wine in 2008, the Pfeiffer Seriously Pink.
