Brothers Richard and Malcolm Leask arrived as youngsters in McLaren Vale in the 1970s, following a family move from the Hunter Valley. Since father Ian Leask established the first family vineyard in ’80, a further six sites spread across McLaren Vale have been added. Currently 13 varieties are planted over 90ha, with more plantings planned. In 2011 Richard and Malcolm started the Hither & Yon label, focusing on small single vineyard parcels, which change each year depending on the vintage and site. Richard manages all the vineyards and makes the wines, Malcolm handles production, sales and the historic cellar door. The labels feature the brand’s ampersand, created by a different artist for each wine. Exports to the UK, the US, and other major markets, including China.
The Leask family of McLaren Vale has been growing grapes and making wine for many quality wine labels in McLaren Vale / Barossa Valley / Hunter Valley for over 40 years.
We have a large quality vineyard portfolio; which offers a range of site, variety, and style to choose from. Each vintage, Hither & Yon selects the most interesting parcels for our own family range of premium wines.
The vineyards are all managed with passion by the Leask family, using sustainable farming principles including grazing our Black Angus cattle. Our philosophy is to trust the vineyard environment and improve our land for the next generation. In the winery we allow the fruit from the vineyard to shine to produce pure wines with great drinkability with food.
We hope you enjoy the journey with us by sharing our wine with food & friends, whether you’re at hearth & home or hither & yon.
Cheers, The Brothers Leask.
