OUR STORY & PHILOSOPHY
“Minimal intervention, hand crafted, small batch wines created with passion”
Architect turned Project Manager and now also Winemaker. Architects of Wine came to fruition early in 2013 after a couple of backyard 'bucket wines' quickly became an obsession. We aim to create interesting and textural wines with restraint, whilst maintaining transparent expressions of the vineyard, vintage and their individual terroir. To achieve this ideal, each wine is carefully crafted and considered with a 'less is more' mantra and a hands-off style of wine making. With a strong focus on Italian varieties and fruit sourced primarily from the Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley, we sometimes venture out to other wine regions in SA depending on where the vintage takes us.
Wherever possible we source fruit only from sustainably farmed vineyards.
All our wines are fermented with the native yeasts from their respective vineyards, are unfined, unfiltered and contain no additions with the exception of a small dose of SO2 prior to bottling in some wines.
