Wines crafted by time
Two years from budburst to bottling. Our high very old volcanic soils slowly warm in spring to stimulate our vines into budburst, and nurture them at a gentle pace through to ripeness in autumn. Capable caring hands take over to pick the grapes and start the transformation of fruit into nectar favoured by gods. Using old world crafts with a dash of science, we slowly create wines with taste and texture, that truly reflect the inputs of our land and mother nature
The Bantry Grove property was purchased in the 1930′s by Terrey Johnson’s father. Located on the rim of the Bathurst Valley to the very South of the Orange Region, the land features rich volcanic soils and an elevation of 960 metres. The property was the Johnson family’s sheep and cattle farm until the 1990s when the first vines were planted covering 12.2 hectares.
