Our winemaking journey together began in 2005.

On a journey, as it was.

All at sea, on the Love Boat (no, really, on the Pacific Princess!) halfway between Sydney and New Caledonia.

At dinner, in the specialty Italian restaurant, Mr Wino ordered a bottle of Barolo – a classic Piedmont wine made from Nebbiolo grapes, allowed to ferment on skins for three weeks creating a big, tannic style.

It was love at first sip and the start of a passion we’ve turned into reality. Mr Wino enrolled in a winemaking degree, Mr Wino took a role as assistant winemaker, we sold our home in Sydney, moved to McLaren Vale, and started making our own wine on the side.

Once the decision had been made to create our first wine, there were a few many steps to take before we had in our hands our own, packaged, labelled wines.

Join us on this journey of discovery!
