steeped in the wine traditions of the mediterranean. produced on the far south coast of NSW.
created using expertly & sustainably farmed fruit
The saying that wine is made in the vineyard is as old as wine itself. Only by starting with the highest quality of fruit, can truly great and characterful wine be made. We source our fruit with care and consideration, relying on close relationships with all our growers forged over many years of collaboration.
and crafted with the utmost care
Crafted with unwavering dedication and attention to detail, each bottle is a testament to the artistry and precision that goes into creating great natural wine. All of our wines are largely made by hand, relying on very little mechanised equipment. All wines are fermented in small batches to ensure the best expression of fruit and terroir.
What makes our wine unique?
NO additives, ever
The higher quality the wine, the less additives will have been used in the winery. We just take that idea a step further and use nothing at all, relying simply on the best quality fruit and the finest artisanal methods.
no filtering, no fining
Filtering and fining are methods used to speed up wine's natural clarification process. We find it also aggressively strips out flavour and texture.
We prefer to give each wine the time it needs. Sometimes there might be a light haze or a small amount of sediment at the end of the bottle – both normal things in a healthy wine, providing nutrition and protection for it.
All our wines are wild fermented, which means only the microbes in the air and on the grape skins themselves ferment our wine, giving a wonderful spectrum of flavours.
No added yeasts, enzymes or other nasties are used for assistance in fermentation.
vegan friendly & gluten free
Ever seen the words "may contain traces of fish, dairy and eggs" written on a wine label?
These additives are used as fining agents, to help clarify wine (see above).
We don't add anything to our wines at any stage, so rest assured that all our wines are 100% vegan friendly and gluten free.
All our wines are fermented until fully dry and tested at the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) to make sure they have zero sugar left prior to release.
Sulphur is an allergen that is used in the preservation of many food and beverage products.
It is considered mostly harmless in wine, especially those that employ small amounts. Usually higher quality wines use the least.
Why stop at a little? We don't use any sulphur at any stage of wine production, resulting in happy, vibrant, living wines.
