Welcome to our store!

For the first 18 months after the Cudlee Creek bushfire, because nearly all our stock was destroyed in the fire, we had no wine of our own.

Two local wineries came to the rescue, one donated wine, the other sold it to us at cost. We called this wine ”hope!” because that is what it gave us.

In July 2021 our next step on our road to recovery has been the release of four wines in which we have had a hand in making.

"hope!" Shiraz 2016

Product Details

The "hope!" label (1st and 2nd photos) replaces the burnt and destroyed wine, and label (3rd photo), we had previously. Special dispensation from Liquor Licensing has allowed us to label this wine under our label, but the wine has generously been sold to us at cost by a local winery keen to help us get back on our feet.

The wine is a tasty, smooth red blend of Shiraz from the Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek. It's a blend of 2016 and 2019 vintages so we have had to call it a Non Vintage .. Drinking well now.

This is the tasting note of our previous wine (3rd photo), which was made by me in our winery and bottled on site. The whole winery including all our stock was destroyed. There is none left.

The fruit was sourced from a long term Adelaide Hills supplier and an Eden Valley grower. The combination of the mainly Adelaide Hills Shiraz with a little bit of Eden Valley Cab is a match made in Heaven! The previous vintage to this scored 91 points out of 100 with James Halliday! This is another cracking wine. It has blackcurrant and black berry characters with hints of coffee and liquorice. Well structured with a long finish, it will age well for up to 7 years.
