Wingham Farmers’ Market Saturday 6 October 2012

Producer Profile

This month we are featuring Red Tail Wines, a boutique winery at Marlee.

Sue and Warren Stiff have been producing wine here for about 15 years. Merlot, Barbera, Semillon, Verdelho and Colombard wine varieties are produced from grapes grown on the property. Because these wines are not mixed with any from other wineries, the flavour of the wine will vary from year to year, depending on the weather that season.

Preserving the local flavours is something Warren and Sue are passionate about, reflecting their down to earth philosophy. Several other varieties are also on offer which are mixes with wines from other vineyards, also local.

Come and taste some of this high quality boutique wine at the Wingham Farmers’ Market this Saturday. Find them inside with Sue’s handmade jewellery on display. Cellar door sales are also available.

Also at the markets this month:

Specially for the school holidays, Lisa Richards from Sew Magical will have something for the kids. Amongst Lisa’s many talents are face painting and balloon modelling with a touch of magic.

At 10 am Tristan from Hand ‘n’ Hoe Macadamias will give a talk on the family business, growing certified organic macadamias on the Comboyne Plateau just north of Wingham. Hand ‘n’ Hoe are growing in popularity in Sydney and elsewhere because of their high quality products. Tristan can also enlighten you on all the ways to use their luscious macadamia oil!

The ‘community stall’ is on hand again to sell your excess produce. If your garden is growing more than your family can eat, why not bring it to the community stall to sell on your behalf? Please make sure it’s chemical spray free, and less than 15 kg.

If you would like to have your own stall, the first time is free. Direct stall holder enquiries to Annette on 0416 247 456.
