Our philosophy is to bring excellent yet affordable German wine to the Australian table. German wines are rightfully enjoying an increased recognition outside Germany by experts as well as modern consumers who appreciate craftsmanship developed and handed down over generations and yet fresh takes on classic characteristics. Our wines are produced by young wine makers in family-run wineries in the Rheinhessen and Pfalz area. They are very versatile, unpretentious and yet of high quality. We have further introduced the Sensory Wine Picture on our label - an illustration of the flavour and taste based on a combination of universally recognised shapes and colours. The effect is simple - if the picture pleases, the wine will taste good, even for the untrained consumer. Our varieties can be found at restaurants and wine bars but we also sell directly to consumers through our online shop and can cater your next event. Contact us on
