  • Our EJ block - 125+ year old vines - swimming in sour sobs. Sour sobs are a little weed flower that will die off at the first bit of heat, right about now actually. .

  • Oh Grenache, how we love you dearly - how you grow beautifully in our home on the Fleurieu Peninsula - how you go perfectly with the diversity of Australia’s cuisines - we love you for your beautiful aromatics, spice and all things nice. HAPPY INTERNATIONAL GRENACHE DAY to you, it’s your day, and we’ll drink to you, by drinking you, cause you’re only a wine at the end of the day!

  • These two:
Roo 1 - "Mate, seriously, I'm taller than you"
Roo 2 - "Bro, you must be kidding, I've got at least a couple of inches on you"
Roo 1 - "I'm standing in a ditch!"
Roo 2 - "Screw this, let's rumble, but mind the Shiraz vines"

  • It's 20 degrees out, and we're starting to get those Spring vibes. We've got some exciting plans for our pop-up container this coming season. Can't say much, but we will say this - it will be popping up in more than one location!

  • A little sneak peak at our newly packaged wines, one from each range. We think they look and taste great.

  • Pictured here is one of our EJ Shiraz vines, planted in the late 1800s, and can be found in our Thomas Block Vineyard. The is one of the oldest surviving vineyards in the region, and still on original rootstock.
.
Every vineyard has its story, and this one is out of this world. Thomas Block is named after the previous owners, who incidentally, are the grandparents of South Australian astronaut Andy Thomas. The low lying site where this vineyard sits is one of the coolest in McLaren Vale, and as a result produces fruit of exceptional natural balance and flavour.
