Slow Wine Co., NSW  24 Victoria Street, Millthorpe NSW 2798
Slow Wine Co is run by the Johnson family who has been on their farm, Bantry Grove, since 1930. After planting vines in 1990, Terrey has come to understand how the cool climate from an elevation of 960m impacts on the growth rates and learnt how to nurture the vines to produce the highest quality grapes. Our very high 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. Two years from budburst to bottle means that we are aiming to create Wines Crafted by Time. On-line sales also available.

Sons and Brothers, NSW  648 Spring Terrace Rd, Millthorpe
Chris and Kathryn Bourke grow and make only one wine at their vineyard near Millthorpe: an older style Cabernet Shiraz dry red blend. The traditional hand crafted techniques used produce a wine that will continue to age gracefully for at least 10 years. Our wine is only released after several years of cellar maturation, so that its layers of complexity and unique aged characters can be appreciated...
