Spiritmerchants presents an encounter with the many and varied wines of Australia's Jacobs Creek winery!

Joie and Bliss!

The first of this years release from JoieFarm Wines arrives at Spiritmerchants this week! Need we say more?

Well, we will---whether we need to or not! Joie's are among the most popular whites and ros├ęs we've ever carried at Spiritmerchants, and we're bringing in a full complement this year. Their Noble Blend and Reisling especially stand out this vintage, although there's not a weak link in the Joie chain We're just blissed-out to have them back in the store---for as long as they last!
