    brockenchack Print   We're delighted to have been awarded medals at each of the wine shows we've ever entered.  Being a very family orientated first generation vineyard, with a passion for drinking (and now producing) top quality wine at reasonable pricesm, our vision is to build a strong name and professional image for our boutique wines and to one day be revered among the best in the Barossa. The vineyard is named after Trevor & Marilyn’s four grandchildren, Bronte, Mackenzie, Charli and Jack…they are the life and soul of this special place.  The four pieces of the puzzle in our logo also represent the four grandchildren.

    murrays_brewing Murrays_crest_CMYK Over the past 7 years we have won a series of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for a range of our beers at the Australian International Beer Awards, Sydney Royal Beer Show, and shows in Queensland and internationally. We have also been consistently rated at the top of the Australian brewer lists by beeradvocate.com and ratebeer.com Currently, Murray's Craft Brewing Co. has 8 beers recognised in the Critic's Choice Top 100 Beers list and was recently named Australia's 'Brewer of the Year'.

    moa_beer Moa-Logo-Negative Moa Beer is the beer that comes from Marlborough, which is nice because mostly Marlborough just makes wine, which is a bit boring. Moa Beer is made the way beer used to be made before everyone started making it differently.   So if somehow someone from 1950 travelled in time to go to the pub and had a Moa Beer today, they wouldn’t be surprised by its full bodied taste.  This is because Moa Beer is made by lots of people and not many machines, as opposed to lots of machines and not many people.  They would however, be surprised by the cost as Moa is quite expensive and they’d be used to only paying two and six. Whatever that is!

    tomich_hill tomich_winesSome of Australia’s finest cool climate wine is produced from the Adelaide Hills, a mere 35 minute drive east of Adelaide, South Australia. That is why John and Vicki Tomich together with their three sons Randal, Damian and Sam selected this stunning region for the establishment of their vineyard. Nestled along the Onkaparinga River, the vineyard is just north of the township of Woodside in the “Hills”– a region well known for producing fruit with elegant, vibrant and fresh varietal flavours. The family has a farming history spanning three generations. Today, their philosophy is that of ‘giving more back to the land than you take’.

    mclarenvale_beer MV Beer logo_sm   McLaren Vale Beer Company we like to keep things relatively simple.  For a start, our beers only have 3 letters, our label design is minimalist, and we may not always brew our beers to what spec the ‘experts’ suggest.  We don’t mind sometimes drinking from the bottle, and enjoy the fact that SA is half an hour behind the bigger cities.  In fact, some say McLaren Vale is another 30 minutes behind this.  And we have 6 words on the wall – words that we try to live by every day.  BE SILLY/BE HONEST/BE KIND

    carlei_wines Carlei Logo Sergio believes environmentally responsible viticulture is the best course for winemaking: “Soil to a vine is like blood to a human being. We know that toxins in the blood lead to all sorts of health problems in people and the same holds true for plants, toxic soil leads to improper vine health. Most importantly, cleaner vineyards allow the true flavours in the fruit to be expressed, which results in better-tasting and better balanced wines”.

    single_vineyard_sellers svs logo_sm Single Vineyard Sellers is a wholesaler of premium wines and liqueurs from Australia and around the world. We specialise in single vineyard producers (hence the name), representing wines that we feel are outstanding quality and deliver value for money, at all price points. We really enjoy drinking good wine and love being able to offer different wines, interesting varietals and unique expressions of terrior. We cover all of the Australasian staples, but we also present many wines that seem to only have a home in "restaurants of a certain cuisine" or in the independent trade, and that's OK, it's just who we are and what we do. Our shared philosophy is: ‘if we wouldn't drink it, we won’t sell it’, so if you drink like we do... you can be guaranteed the quality of all our wines.
