We are a boutique business with a primary focus on sourcing the best quality cleanskin wine from premier wineries in Australia. Unlike larger retailers, we are able to acquire smaller quantities of premium wine, whereas our competitors fail to deliver on that promise.
By definition, a cleanskin wine is an unlabeled bottle of wine that does not indicate the origin, winery or brand of the wine.
Wine buyer and founder Steve Cloughley has been procuring quality and value for money wines for over 10 years. Steve has established close relationships with numerous boutique wine producers, many of whom are rated 5 Stars by renowned wine writer and critic James Halliday. Such relationships have enabled Steve to create an exclusive range of over 80 premium wines, with the majority of the wines been sourced from Western Australian.
Before inclusion in the product line, each wine is meticulously scrutinised and examined by university qualified winemaker/viticulturist David Gan along with wine buyer Steve Cloughley.
A quality scale of 0/100 is used to score each wine taking into consideration the colour, bouquet, palate, and ageing potential. Wines that score lower than 80/100 are discarded and not included in our final product range.
We have a 100% money-back guarantee, and you are also able to sample any of our wines at our retail stores before you buy.
Its pretty simple really… at WACC we find awesome quality wines at an awesome price for our customers. In the process we help wineries to move excess stock without damaging their brand value as we sell that same wine at up to 70% less than the branded price form the winery. As a result our customers get awesome quality wines at an awesome price and the winery actually gets some cash flow and moves on wines ready for the next vintage to be released. Its a win, win, win for everyone.
Over the years we have established close relationships with Australia’s best wine producers and we are their first port of call when they have excess quality wines they would like to move without causing damage to their existing wine brand value.
On our wine labels all the tell you is the region the wine is from, the vintage and the variety. We provide a lot more information in our stores and on our website about the wine, the region and some more details about the winery without actually naming the winery as we would damage their brand value if we did.
We opened our first retail store WA Cleanskin Cellars at Subi (formerly Subi Cleanskins) in November 2004. The Subi store was the first specialist cleanskin wine store approved by liquor licensing in Western Australia. Our retail stores enable customers to come in and try the wines before they buy. It is almost a cellar door in the city and a great way to discover and build trust in the quality of our wines.

We have thousands of retail customers and also hundreds of wholesale customers and liquor retailers throughout Australia. We offer a total 100% Money back guarantee for all our wines.
