We’re going to live the wine life! 🍷

Wine is so much deeper than just alcohol in a glass. It’s so much more important to all our lives, it is for life, it is what Meridian is about. We have gone through the stages of grief, anger, we’ve been depressed…but guess what? It’s Spring. It's a new world. It's a new life and we want to live a wine life. A life that is full of hope and renewal - a fine life.

A wine life is about moderation, appreciation, joy, culture and connection. We're excited to rebuild SA Wine and restructure because it's a new world and a new life.

No matter what comes our way, we know that we can survive it, and we're just going to keep doing that.
