We established our South Australian Artwine brand in 2008 after many years of vineyard production and the planting of new-emerging varieties on our vineyards. Also called "Alternative varieties" - these are the new (to Australia) Mediterranean varieties that create and drive our wine passion.
Why do we love these new varieties so much? - They are food friendly, lighter in style and have complexity of flavours that are both interesting and awaken our palates. We are fast becoming a nation of foodies with exposure to the flavours of Europe, these wines excite and complement.
The "Old World" wines become "New World".
We believe this is the wine future of Australia. We are committed to leading change, that in turn leads to a sustainable wine industry by pioneering new varieties that are climatically appropriate and appease the broadening consumer wine tastes.
We were way ahead of our time in many of our initial plantings, the first to plant Fiano, Graciano and Viognier in the Clare Valley and today are the only Adelaide Hills Cellar Door offering an estate grown Prosecco and Albariño.
We have been awarded in just a few short years an incredible 25 trophies and numerous awards.
Last year was, as you can appreciate a strange year with losing our entire HIlls vintage to the Cudlee Creek bushfires and then came Covid with so many wine shows cancelled for the year.
So we enter vintage 2021 with excitement and healthy looking vines with strong yields.
