Our focus is on making wines from new-emerging (alternative) varieties that are ideally 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 new-emerging (alternative) varieties. We invest heavily back into the land and the wine industry for future generations.
Our fruit is estate grown. Our new-emerging varieties have been planted progressively since 2000.
We are totally inspired by the lighter style European varieties. We started with planting Tempranillo, Pinot Gris, Viognier and later added Graciano, Fiano & Montepulciano. These were in addition to the existing varieties already planted, of Cabernet Sauvignon, Old Bush vine Grenache, Cabernet Franc and Riesling.
Our second Clare Valley vineyard in Sevenhill with stunning northern views on the other side of the Valley is home to our self-contained Artwine Vineyard Accommodation. The Sevenhill vineyard is planted to Riesling, Cabernet, Shiraz and Tempranillo.
The Artwine architecturally designed Cellar Door is at 72 Bird-in-Hand Road, Woodside on our third vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. This cooler climate vineyard is planted to Prosecco, Albariño, Pinot Noir and Merlot.
In total we grow 15 varieties, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Fiano, Riesling, Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Prosecco, Montepulciano and Albariño.
Our wine quality starts in our vineyards. Our vines are lovingly nurtured to produce fruit of exceptional quality that showcases the regions and their ability to grow these wonderful new-emerging exciting varieties that produce wines of exceptional quality - "The Good Life".
