Now is probably a good time to suggest a staycation!  Even temporarily? Especially when you can enjoy the best thing (a.k.a. wine) the whole world has to offer from the comfort of your couch (or your bed – you do you).

To get a fully immersive experience, we’ll even let you know the temperature to set the AC to and a winning local movie you can throw on in the background, so it’s like you’re really there! Fun!

So put your tray table up, strap yourself in as we do a quick 360 around the world, without even leaving the house.

The land of the tango, soccer, Eva Perón and some of the best reds on the planet.

Drink: These stratospheric drops. High in altitude and high in fab.

Watch: The fast-paced con caper about one last score, Nueve Reinas (Nine Queens).

Climate Control: to 22 degrees


A little bit of everything in one place. Culture? Tick. Scenery? Tick. Art? Tick. Wine? A big fat tick. 

Drink: Fresita. It’s Spanish for ‘strawberry’ and it’s kookie for ‘yum’.

Watch: ‘No’. Some guys in the ‘80s stick it to the dictator and bring him down though an ad campaign.

Climate Control: to 28 degrees 


If you forget about Trump, the U S of A is kinda cool. From the jazz hands of Hollywood to the culture (and chicken) of the south, there’s something for everyone. Luckily you don’t have to leave your house for a taste.

Drink: Like the folks of the Wild Wild West with this swag.

Watch: Really set the scene with the beautiful, twisted and stylish Westworld – Season 1.

Climate Control: to 19 degrees 

New Zealand

That warm feeling of the nicest people on earth living in the most naturally diverse land is closer than you think.

Drink: This. Deep, rich, intense.

Watch: The delightful Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Try not to spit out your wine in laughter.

Climate Control: to 14 degrees (brrr)

South Africa

Giraffes. Need we say more?

Drink: This shale number from a truly unique terroir. 

Watch: The low-budget, high fun, alien-fest, District 9.

Climate Control: to 27 degrees 


Did you know 75% of us haven’t seen more than 27% of our own country? Okay. Those stats were made up. But it’s true. So go get some of that Great Southern Land. Now.

Drink: Our Collaboration Case – funky and tasty wines made in collaboration with our favourite winemakers. 

Watch: Muriel's Wedding. An absolute classic with catchy tunes to boot.

Climate Control: to 26 degrees
