The Sangria is definitely getting out there! Symmone, our newest Caudo employee in Western Australia, has been very busy getting hotels and bottle shops on board the Sangria Wagon. Talking about Sangria wagon… It has arrived! The new wrapped Sangria van has crossed over into Western Australia where it will travel across the state to deliver Caudo Vineyards Sangria …the best Sangria you have ever tasted!
One exciting new place this week is The Ravenswood Hotel, affectionately called “The Ravo” by the locals and is located on WA’s answer to the Murray River. It’s the kind of on-premise venue where you can rock up in your boat, park up whilst the kids swim in the river, swing from the famous tree with rope on it and chill out in the beer garden. They also have a Thirsty Camel drive through bottle shop. They always have live music there and Symonne told Daniel, the Bottle shop manager, that we are keen to get on board with Sangria to any events they have coming up. Hoodoo Gurus were there during our Australia Day weekend celebrations and they played to a sell out crowd.
The Sandy Cove Tavern, is another popular location on the Murray River in Western Australia with a bottle shop attached. They loved it and want more. A funky little place with live music, very popular with both young and old crew. It’s very popular for Sunday Sessions.
The Baldivis – Bottlemart Liquor Store are chomping through it. It’s very close to the Perth Wake Park and I’m sure a lot of the crew who work at Cables have gone there to grab their fix of Sangria. Steel Tree at the Foreshore is still pumping through their stocks. Hogs Breath Joondalup are loving it and the feedback has been very positive. Last but definitely not least, we come to ‘The Peninsula’. These guys are absolutely killing it and with their water location and the heatwave Perth had had for almost 2 weeks, it’s been very popular. For a few days Perth had nothing under 40 degrees! One night it was 37 degrees at 11pm! The next step is to look into the Mandurah’s Channel 7 Crab Festival and now with the new Sangria van in play we may be able to feature at the festival. How exciting!
