Our grape wines, like our meads, are also inspired by our interest in ancient winemaking traditions.
For instance, our very popular ‘Bluey’ Red draws on the Ancient Roman custom of blending grapes with honey to produce a wine rich in the flavours of grape but with a hint of honey on the finish.
Staying with the Italian influence, we also use an Italian grape variety, Barbera, which has been grown in Northern Italy since the thirteenth century. Well suited to our warmer climate, it develops intense and complex berry and fruit aspects when allowed to fully ripen on the vines and then late picked in autumn to produce a robust fruity red.
We use locally grown wine grapes from the Perricoota wine-grape region, which is situated beside the River Murray near Echuca and Moama.
Purchasing Our Wines
Our wines & meads are available from our cellar door & online. Sometimes we also attend regional farmers’ markets and festivals – updates on these will appear on our Facebook page from time to time! You’re also welcome to order from our online store at http://www.farmhousedirect.com.au, a ‘virtual farmer’s market’ run by Australia Post.
