Description

Sebastiano Brini arrived in McLaren Vale from Italy in the year 1950 with a suitcase, five pounds and a passion for growing grapes.

​Like many European immigrants of this time, he worked hard to establish a better life in his new country. He worked as a labourer in local vineyards and by 1953 had saved enough money to purchase a property in Blewitt Springs. At the time, two thirds of the property was used to run dairy cows and the other third had established grapevines. These included Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro planted by returned serviceman in the late 1940's as part of a soldier settlement scheme.

​With the help of his family, the property was progressively planted with more grapevines and the varieties now include Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Merlot, and Chenin Blanc. Now the land is exclusively under vine. Planting occurred in the mid to late 1940’s, the 1960’s and late 1990’s. Over the years the vineyard has gained a proud reputation of supplying grapes to some of Australia's finest red wine producers including Penfolds, Rosemount, D'Arenberg and Maglieri. In 1988 Sebastiano died as a result of a tractor accident and sons Marcello and John continued to manage the vineyard.

The 2013 Grenache is a premium red wine that offers a delightful combination of fruit, spice, and earthy flavours. This vintage is made from 100% Grenache grapes, which are harvested from select vineyards in the Rhone Valley region of France and carefully vinified to produce wine of exceptional quality.
