About

A family affair with Nicholas Brown at the helm of winemaking and partner Nicole running the restaurant and business. Organic and biodynamic practices have been employed since 2010. Their philosophy is to make wine ‘true to the place it’s grown’. Hands-on in the vineyard, hands-off in the winemaking – handpicked fruit, indigenous yeast, no additives, no fining or filtration where possible, with minimal sulphur at bottling.

WineFruit sourced from gravel soils of the Waipara Valley that impart a mineral like fine structure. Vibrant pear and green apple, lots of pure fruit characters combine with balanced acidity for a long and refreshing finish. Delicious.
