About the winery
Organics, Biodynamics, making wine with no additives... Like many people, our journey to wine was through hospitality. Naomi surfed & snow-boarded around the world and I worked in bars & on farms. I remember how fit I was back then... One day my Dad bought a vineyard, a proper one, and he asked me to help. Together we built a winery on it with the family. Then 10 years later it sold. Immediately Naomi & I started thinking about our very own vineyard. If we started something, we wanted our kids to be able to play around in the dirt without us worrying. We wanted them to be able to pick fruit off of the trees and put them straight into their mouths without a care in the world. A van trip to Europe, touring around every vineyard and surf break we could pack in, opened our eyes to what winemaking could be. We saw that you can use old-world techniques and blend them with new-world knowledge to create more natural wines. I think about that trip every week. It’s taken a long time

History & Geography
I've stuffed up a lot of really good grapes. I've also made some good wine, occasional great wine, & some really really bad wine. Don't ask... But always honest wine That might sound a little bit weird. But, there are a bunch of things you can do to wine that can muddle where the grapes are from. You can add tannins extracted from trees and nuts, adjust the acidity to make it seem crisper or safer, or apply additives and packet fixes to make things ‘better’. All of these additives gets you wine cheaper and more consistent. Which is good. I guess? We prefer OUR wines to reflect the land that grew it, the weather that was that year, and the hard (or lazy) work that has been put in. That means in our winery we use all-wild ferments and minimal additives. And in the vineyard we lean on fences and chat to the neighbours about the rain and long-range forecasts. We grow stuff. And in the shed we mess about with the stuff that we have grown. Trying different techniques such as:
