WIN a $300 case of bubbles!

Hands up if you own a vintage style treasure? A pre-loved item of a ‘certain age’ that’s got a special place in your heart (and your wardrobe) because it is simply awesome.

Here’s your chance to share your favourite vintage treasure with all of us at Fox in Flats, and in doing so, be in the running to WIN a case of Sparking Pinot Noir from another great vintage, thanks to Bird in Hand winery.

A couple of my oldest friends (and ex-flatmates!) now run Bird in Hand – a family-owned winery nestled in the Adelaide Hills, not far from where my Father grew up.

Since it was founded in 1997, Bird in Hand has won so many local and international wine awards that their ‘pool room’ is bursting at the seams. Their wines really are special.


 Note: This isn’t a photo of my buddies. They’re more likely to be seen chasing their kids around and wiping Vegemite stains off their pants like the rest of us.


The team at Bird in Hand regard the 2011 Sparkling Pinot Noir as one of their favourite vintages, so to celebrate, they’re giving away a case to a lucky Fox in Flats reader!

WIN a case of Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir 2011, valued at $300

Made from 100% Adelaide Hills-grown Pinot Noir and harvested during the cool of night to maintain quality.

The winemakers say: “This Sparkling has lifted strawberry and cherry aromas with a beautiful pink tone from skin contact. The floral lift is clean and vibrant. The fruit sweetness is balanced by crisp acidity and a long, clean finish.”

I say: “Cheers!”
