We love how well suited Fiano is to the Australian climate, with it’s thick skin and ability to ripen on the vine without losing acidity under the summer sun. It’s also very versatile in the winery, and our aim is to make a style that is fresh, zippy and attractively aromatic. We work with a vineyard at Kersbrook, in the warmer northern Adelaide Hills, which we think is a perfect site growing for Italian grape varieties.
An early hand picked parcel from the iconic Brini vineyard in Blewitt Springs. 100% Grenache, grown on ancient sandy soils. Partly fermented in locally made terracotta pots, gently hand plunged with extended time on skins. Basket pressed and matured for 6 months in seasoned French oak. A fresh, bright style.

Grillo is a sun-loving white variety native to Sicily, now thriving in the Adelaide Hills. Handpicked late in the season from the Piccadilly Valley with 2 days on skins, basket pressed, fermented slowly and hand bottled without filtration.
Whole berries were retained after destemming the bunches (no crushing took place), before a cool, open top fermentation. Fermented slowly for 12 days on skins and then basket pressed to seasoned French Hogsheads for 10 months of maturation. Bottled without any fining or filtration.
Grown from two vineyards, across regions to truly express this wonderful grape variety that is so well suited to our Aussie climate.
55% McLaren Vale | 45% Langhorne Creek.
A vibrant, medium to full-bodied style with soft, plush tannins.
Valentine’s Day looks a little different in 2022, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still celebrate the people we love. So we’ve made your life easier with our Vino Valentino package – the perfect at home Italian indulgence.
The package includes Michael’s hand selected, Sicilian inspired wines to help transport you to that place you visited last decade (or might be dreaming of visiting in the not so distant future).
The wines are perfectly matched with your flavour-rich Italian cooking staples from some of our favourite South Australian producers. Plus, Michael has put together a couple of main meal recipes (including one vegetarian) and a chocolate-based dessert recipe for you to follow along the way. (He’s even thrown in some salted caramel chocolate to finish off your Valentine’s date and a romantic Italian Spotify playlist to shimmy along to.)
