Last weekend I was able to visit the Subiaco store. There was a little table with some cheese and crackers and a selection of wine. I don't know a lot about wine so I had an interesting chat with the clerk who was more than happy to go into detail about the wines that she had selected.
I was also given a magnet which had wine and cheese pairing suggestions on it which I immediately pocketed.
The highlight of the visit for me was the mulled wine. The clerk showed me some spice bags and explained the cooking process to me and even gave me my own recipe card to take home. I'm not a huge fan of wine but I liked the mulled wine. It tasted sweet and reminded me of Christmas pudding. I could really taste the orange and the honey in it.
