Southern Highlands of New South Wales

A change in circumstances brought about the ultimate "Eureka moment" .

A long term plan to visit Australia became a mission to find out if the Southern Highlands

 of NSW produced quality wines.

No-one in the UK was stocking wines from this region so would they be good or bad?

Halfway between Sydney and Canberra, this unknown wine region had superb

"Cool Climate Wine" gems.

Grown at Altitude from European settlers' original stock vines, the Southern Highlanders have been keeping this secret to themselves.

Boutique 5 star vineyards from the area now produce premium award winning wines. 

The question that followed was how to find a trade name that could reflect and respect the nature of the environment, climatic conditions, low level intervention methods and adventure of discovery.

The name became clear we had to follow Australia's First Nation people and show respect.

2019 Brexit blues

The year is unraveling like an onion skin with very little change or clear way forward. The High Street is awash with closures the only saving grace being our great wines which get better as time slips by.

Great additions to lay down some say the Barbera 2015 will be the stand out wine for year to come, that hidden secret following in the footsteps of Penfolds Grange, misunderstood at first but now a gem to find and savour.
