Alternate variety for a sustainable future

With warmer summers and marginal conditions increasing it is essential that winemakers, who rely entirely on the weather, focus on the future of our regions across Australia and what that means from a sustainability perspective. “The wine for a hotter future might come from an ancient grape grown in Italy’s south”, says respected wine writer Max Allen.

Vintage 2019 – The year that almost wasn’t

In the hot, dusty, northerly wind, Liam and I have just washed down the last press cage to officially close the 2019 Harvest.

Being a sport tragic this time of year also signifies finals footy, the start of …

Vintage 2017 Trio of September releases

We’re calling it here and now – the 2017 vintage was one of the Barossa’s best for Grenache and Aglianico. While the winter and spring leading into the 2017 vintage were cold and wet, with double the amount of rainfall of 2016, consistently cool conditions throughout the ripening period were ideal for these late ripening varieties. As a result, the …

OFF-GRID WINERY A SUCCESS!
