Paranormal Activity

Gut Oggau is here

Gut Oggau is here

A very, very, VERY special allocation has docked — the goods of Gut Oggau’s labour have landed in the shop. Theodora, Winifred, Edmund, Josephine, Joschuari, Metchild and the Brutal now grace our shelves and if history repeats itself they shan’t stay long. For the uninitiated, Gut Oggau, run by Eduard Tscheppe & Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck, is a certified biodynamic producer in Burgenland. Their wines, rightly, receive cult status. The 17th Century vineyard was restored by hand and produces a very limited amount of grape liquid. A true treat to have in-ship.

Meet Passionova

Meet Passionova

We forged a new wine! To celebrate turning one, we conspired with Borachio to birth Passionova, a limited edition fizz exclusive to Paranormal. Passionova is a mixed grape bag with fine mousse tendencies. It’s refreshing, summery and deliciously juice-like. Order Passionova below or find on our shelves.

A drink you must drink

A drink you must drink

 If you’ve not seen the OK! Margarita Seltzer floating around the traps, there's a possibility you’ve lost sight. This drink is extremely delicious, reminiscent of summers gone by. It’s created with fresh fruit, hand-imported mezcal and a lot of love. It’s now on the shelves at Paranormal and is the only place you’ll find it in ACT, earthlings.

A Halloween special

A Halloween special

In case it flew under your radar, our apricot-y, quince-y, fizzy piquette, made with Bryan Martin, is now on our shelves. As a Halloween treat, we’re giving away ~ a free bottle ~ of Paranormal Fizz with every in-shop retail purchase over $100 till next Friday. For the unacquainted, piquettes are not wine, but slightly fizzy alcoholic liquids, traditionally drunk by vineyard workers. Ours employs Chardonnay and Zibibbo skins and results in a plum-coloured liquid prime for hot-weather drinking. Very limited, 10% ABV.
