Artwine focuses on making wines from new-modern new-emerging varieties that are perfectly suited to the Mediterranean climates of both the Clare Valley and the slightly cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
"Our vision is to leave a legacy of beautifully managed sustainable vineyards with one of the largest plantings in the country of alternative varieties. We invest heavily back into the land and the wine industry for future generations".
All fruit is estate grown. The new-emerging varieties have been planted progressively since 2000.
Two vineyards in the Clare Valley, one on Sawmill Road, Sevenhill which houses the Artwine Vineyard accommodation and the second vineyard is on Springfarm Road, Clare. The third vineyard is located at 72 Bird in Hand Road, Woodside, in the Adelaide Hills which is home to their beautiful Cellar Door.
"We grow a massive 15 varieties, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Fiano, Riesling, Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Prosecco, Montepulciano and Albariño".
"The wine starts in our vineyards. Our vines are lovingly nurtured to produce fruit of exceptional quality that showcases the regions and its ability to grow these wonderful new-emerging exciting varieties that produce wines of exceptional quality" - "The Good Life".
"If food is the body of good living, wine is its soul"
