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.

Say hello to Sinead Tintinger, our Credit Note & Proof of Delivery Supervisor.

Sinead joined Meridian in 2017 as a temporary receptionist and after 3 months moved to the orders department where she was an acting supervisor, a post that became permanent. Her previous experience in sales and admin as well as her keen eye for detail perfectly suits her current role.

Cheers Sinead! 🥂
