About Us

A DESTINATION TO FIND TRUSTWORTHY BEVERAGES

At Sometimes Always, we celebrate the diversity of the beverage industry across the full spectrum of styles. Our guarantee is that any product at Sometimes Always can be personally vouched for by our team – everything in store has been purposefully selected. This means we’ve done the hard work for you by building a curated list that ranges from familiar favourites to exciting new findings.

Given the breadth of the drinks industry, changing trends and the whimsies of allocations, the Sometimes Always range is designed to be fluid and ever changing, meaning products will only be sometimes available, but that there will always be something new to discover. 

“We don't align to a particular style, region or variety. We love good wine with a good story. Lo-fi cult producers alongside proven classics that no wine collection would be complete without.”

Your Gentle Guides to Interesting Drinks

The Sometimes Always team are no strangers to the drinks industry. Not only are they also the team behind boutique, McLaren Vale based winery, Alpha Box & Dice, but they have an extensive understanding of the drinks industry inside and out. Winemakers, distributors, wholesalers, marketers and avid wine lovers, they are passionate about ensuring the Sometimes Always project offers drinks for everyone, as they themselves have such diverse tastes.
