Wish you could sample more wines, but don't have the time to go tasting every weekend? The folks behind Nomad, Sydney's inner-city cellar door, hear you. They've launched a brand new wine club, which brings local, seasonal, boutique and obscure drops to your doorstep.
The Nomad Wine Club selection changes every month, with two membership categories catering for various budgets and wine drinking capacities. The first, 'the admirer', costs 90 bucks and gets you three bottles per month. The second, 'the enthusiast', is $185 per month and scores you six bottles. The wines on offer at the moment all retail at around $30 a bottle, which is consistent with the pricing of the packs — what you're paying for is the curation.
Nomad has been showcasing wines from all over Australia since 2013 and anyone who's familiar with the restaurant's "4000-kilometre-long" wine list will know that the focus is on small, independent operations. These winemakers aren't afraid to step out and do things a bit differently — whether it be growing exotic varieties or experimenting with alternative winemaking techniques.
"We wanted to offer something for everyone…from those wanting to dip their toes in the wonderful world of wine to those in search of something a little more adventurous," said Rebecca Yazbek, co-founder. "I hope our Nomad Wine Club will help take the stress out of the looming bottle shop shelves and bring the incredible producers we are lucky enough to work with into people's homes."
Delivery is available across Sydney and is included in the membership price. You can get your membership started over here, or head on in to the restaurant to taste this month's selection.
