Have you ever had difficulty finding a quality wine that is unique and memorable?

How can you really tell when all the time it seems like you’re bombarded by wine medals, accolades, entry-levels and advertising, not to mention the opinions of wine writers and ‘connoisseurs’?

If you rely on these parameters, searching for that special wine can seem like an impossible decision. That’s why we think that you may be missing out on real quality.

Our business is an integral part of our life and this informs how we see the industry. The vineyard is more than just a viticultural operation and the wine making is more than just a controlled process.

At the same time, we believe that professional wine making and high standards of production are paramount. For that reason, our entire production is conducted in-house and we do not outsource any aspects of the business.

Therefore, our perception of quality wine is different to that of many other wineries.  We set our own standards and treat each wine uniquely – with every grape hand-picked and every bottle made to perfection. In this way, we endeavour to satisfy the taste of our customers.

So, as we navigate the confusion and attempt to distinguish between real quality wine and the façade thereof, what advice do we have for you?

Well, it’s simple – experience it for yourself. We believe in our product and we’re sure that you’ll be able to notice the difference. Then, we’ll let you decide which wines are really the best quality your money can buy.


Right from the beginning, our winery has been committed to producing wines for discerning consumers. These are the wine enthusiasts that seek out wines of remarkable character and unique complexion.

In pursuit of this vision, our family has been working very hard to establish a model vineyard and to produce sustainable harvests. The quality of our wine is a reflection of long term dedication, knowledge and innovation. Moreover, we are committed to benefiting the regional towns and people of Australia, where we have lived for more than 25 years.

Our focus is on each bottles’ content, as we aspire to exclusively produce premium wines. The philosophy is simple: high quality grapes, hand-picked from our single vineyard in Avoca, crafted into complex, full-bodied wines. We are a unique micro-winery, always exploring new ways of producing outstanding wines by researching novel wine-making processes.

By buying our wines you are purchasing a product of superior quality and supporting a sustainable business. We are determined to find the ‘discerners’ out there and that’s why quality is our guiding ethos. Join us at our cellar door and taste the difference for yourself!
