Who Are We?
Bringing the best drops to your table
Born out of our passion for wine, and Aussie wine in particular, Squashed Grapes is all about bringing you some of the best wines from off the beaten track.
After many seasons researching (and enjoying) wine, working in the industry and travelling to some of the world’s most amazing wine regions, including those in our own backyard, we found that some of the best wines were from the lesser known family-run wineries. Our goal is to bring those boutique wines and more to your table.
It’s all about quality, variety and value for money
Australia has an amazing wine landscape and is known across the globe for its magnificent grape quality and varieties. We want to share our passion about the different regions, pairing food and wine styles, and most importantly demonstrate that you don’t have to be a massive brand to produce amazing wine. That’s where you come in.
There’s no ‘i’ in team
Our job is to make sure only the best drops make it on the list. All the wines we stock have been tasted by our panel. That way, we can be sure that we take into account all different tastes and palates. Only those wines that pass the tasting test ever make it to our site. That’s right, if the majority says ‘no’ then the wine won’t make it on the list.
Why Squashed Grapes?
There are so many great wine choices out there and we love that. We love that wine is so accessible to suit the many different consumer tastes, budgets and geographies.
At the end of the day, wine is wine but what we are wanting to achieve which is slightly different to most other wine websites is that personal touch. We want to close the gap between our customers and our website. We want to meet you, talk to you and share each other’s passion through exchanging knowledge and stories about wine. We love wine and food pairing and want to share that knowledge with you so we’ll give you some suggestions and tips on what works and what doesn’t with certain foods.
Lastly, we want you to come along to our tastings so you can try before you buy. We want to reward you for your loyalty. But ultimately we want to build that trust with you, as we have with family and friends so you know that what we recommend or deliver to your door is something you will enjoy - and of course, have some fun along the way.
Give us a chance, you won't be disappointed.
