- ABOUT US -
In 2001 my wife Vicki and I moved to the Barossa Valley, we rented a lovely old property on ten acres out at Mt Mckenzie, approximately halfway between Angaston and Eden Valley which we purchased in 2003.
Our dream was to plant a vineyard and start a small winery. Things didn’t go according to plan, we drilled for water a vital ingredient for planting a vineyard with no success.
We made good friends with Domenic Torzi and Tracy Mathews our neighbours who coincidently have a great vineyard and wine label Frost Dodger.
Over the odd bottle of red most Friday nights I explained my dream and vision to Dom, not to be deterred Vicki and I thought we can still produce our wine but we would have to source quality grapes on long term agreement.
Dom has been fantastic helping sourcing great quality vineyards and being our winemaker. The combination of vineyards:
Shiraz from Greenock, Eden Valley & Lyndoch
Old vine Grenache from Eden Valley
Old vine Mataro from Nurioopta
Sauvignon Blanc from Craneford in Eden Valley
We are now in our12th vintage with Veronique Foundation Shiraz (2014 & 2015 still in barrel) we have 3 Red verieties for sale, being the 2013 Foundation Shiraz, 2013 Old Vine Grenache Shiraz Mataro & 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon.
We produce and offer quality wines at affordable prices for wine lovers. Our wines may be hard to source but worth looking for and for your convenience we have a mail order service, including free delivery. (case lots only)
We only produce small parcels of each wine to date no more that 700 cases of each variety.
