Our quest for a cool site to grow Pinot noir and Chardonnay started in 2013 with numerous visits to Tasmania to find the right block of land.
We focused exclusively on the Huon Valley region, south of Hobart. We consider the area to have exceptional possibilities to produce elegant wines and pretty styles rather than the broad flavours that attract gleaming medals.
We commenced this project while we were living in McLaren Vale (South Australia) making Spanish influenced wines at Cascabel. The vineyard and winery we established in 1997.
This pursuit took us two years until we found the right 21 hectares of land in Lymington. A year later, we sold Cascabel and took all our winemaking and vineyard equipment in four shipping containers to start a new chapter of planting a vineyard all over again.
