In David Bowley's words, ‘Vinteloper is a winery started by a guy who decided, on instinct, to skip through his own daisy fields.' Vineyards and wineries had permeated David's mind before he left school, so it was inevitable that he would obtain his oenology degree at Adelaide University (in 2002). After several years training in both Australia and France, with some of the biggest and smallest players in the game, he founded Vinteloper in 2008. Wife Sharon draws the unique labels. Vinteloper continues to handcraft wines styled with a light touch and upbeat aromatics. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, South Korea, Singapore, Japan and NZ.
Vinteloper Wines is a one man winery producing wines that express, in equal measure, vineyard site & personality of the winemaker. Winemaker David Bowley sources grapes from vineyards owned by friends & family in the regions of McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills & Clare Valley, vineyards that in some cases, David has worked on over several years.
Now, in partnership with those friends & family, a significant investment of time & care is put into the vineyard year round to ensure consistency in terrior no matter the variation of vintage conditions. The wines are and will always be sourced from the same vineyards.
