Our Roots

Great Wine Starts In The Vineyard

our_story

We believe that all great wines begin in the vineyard. Our strong vineyard focus is something that sets us apart from many other wine producers. From the careful selection of our vineyard sites more than 20 years ago, and the planting of varieties and clones that take full advantage of the soil and climate, to the judicious management of these blocks in the years since then, we are able to ensure that we consistently deliver the best fruit possible to the winery every year.

We have strong beliefs in vineyard providence and sustainable management practices. Our philosophy is to manage our vineyards with a very hands-on, small-scale approach, often identifying particular rows, or portions of rows to pick for certain wines. The end result is a selection of ultra-premium, hand-crafted wines that encompass the terroir and hopefully do justice to the passion of our vigneron, the dedication of our vineyard managers, and the commitment of our winemaker.

The Davis family vineyards total 160 hectares: 28 at Tallavera Grove in Mount View – Hunter Valley, 90 at Wrattonbully in South Australia (40k’s north of Coonawarra), 30 at Orange in Central Western NSW.
