About

One of our favourite producers, Mallaluka is a newcomer to the Canberra District, only launching in 2014. Founded by John Leyshon who has been making wine since the 90’s with a side project called Little Bridge Wines, Mallaluka is a boutique operation gaining a huge reputation for producing premium wines. Son, Sam (ex Clonakilla) is now running the business with this Dad. Winemaking is experimental and low intervention with minimal use of chemicals, basket pressing, no fining, no filtering, minimal use of sulphur. The winery is on the Yass side of Canberra, and well worth the visit. Appointment only.
