Nardone Baker scores another medal

ANOTHER wine from the Nardone Baker family has won a major prize in an international competition. Our late release, Nardone Baker The Wara Manta Reserve 2001 Shiraz has scored a Silver medal at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards in London.

Just like its companion product, the 2002 Shiraz, it has won two international medals. Its previous medal was a Bronze at the 2005 London International Wine Show.


A hard day's work in The Vineyard

IT WAS a hard day's work for the owner of The Vineyard, Bill Dwyer, and his daughter, Kerry Dwyer, when Frank Nardone and Rolivia Senior Account Manager, Gerry Burell, descended on the popular North Andover (MA, USA) wine shop and gourmet store in July for a Nardone Baker Wines tasting. Frank Nardone, our Managing Director, talked to The Vineyard customers about all things "Australian" and all things "wine".

Bill and Kerry were surely aware of Frank's and Gerry's attendance, because Nardone Baker wines were walking out the door!


Nardone Baker is in La Taverna

MORE and more Italians are discovering the taste of Nardone Baker wines, with La Taverna Di Mino among the early fans of our range.

La Taverna Di Mino is the premier restaurant/wine bar/steak house in Gaeta, south of Rome, the birth place of Nardone Baker Wines patriarch, Joe Nardone.

La Taverna Di Mino recently played host to a visit from Frank Nardone and some of the Nardone Baker Wines (Italy) team.

Apparently, there has been a lot of interest surrounding the Nardone Baker range in Gaeta, following the visit of a television crew in July, to shoot a cooking show in the region which featured Nardone Baker wines.

Socceroos make history

IT WAS a long wait between drinks, so to speak, for the Australian football (soccer) team, known as the Socceroos.

The last time the team made the World Cup was in 1974. Thirty-two years later, Australia has not only broken the drought and made it onto the world stage, but the team has made it into the second round.

Despite the team's controversial loss to Italy due to a questionable penalty in the final minutes of the elimination final, our players are being hailed as heroes for their record-breaking efforts.

The spirit the players showed, always performing under the pressure of being underdogs, emulated some of the virtuous characteristics that Aussies hold dear - playing hard, playing fair, and never giving up.

As a result of Australia's performance in Germany, soccer has a much brighter future down under.


A daily/weekly drink helps men/women

IT SEEMS that it now makes sense to drink a toast to your health, after a Danish study found that men and women benefit from drinking wine.

According to the study of 50,000 people - which is a very large sample - men who drink wine daily had a 41% reduced risk of coronary heart disease and women who drank weekly had a 36% reduced risk of heart disease.

Professor Morten Gronbaek's team from the Danish National Institute of Public Health found that men needed to drink daily to benefit from wine consumption, while women could have a glass of wine weekly or daily for the same net result.


A toast to Nardone Baker Wines

FRANK and Anna Nardone accepted a thank you certificate from Ronald McDonald House in Adelaide recently, for Nardone Baker Wines' support of the children's charity.

Chair of the Ronald McDonald House Board, Chris Baker, left, made the presentation to Frank and Anna at a special ceremony in North Adelaide.

Nardone Baker sponsors the annual Ronald McDonald Ball in its role as exclusive wine sponsor and the donation of gift packs for auction on the night.

"Frank and Anna have always been very supportive of Ronald McDonald House," said Chair, Chris Baker.
