Hither & Yon

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Brothers Richard and Malcolm Leask started Hither & Yon in 2012, the Old Jarvie label added in ’16. The grapes are sourced from 78ha of family vineyards at 7 sites scattered around McLaren Vale. Currently there are 20 varieties, with more to come. Richard manages the vineyards while Malcolm runs the business. The historic, tiny cellar door in Willunga has a vintage feel with a café and music events. The Hither & Yon labels feature the brand's ampersand, with a different artist creating the artwork for each wine. Old Jarvie (www.oldjarvie.com.au) focuses on blends. Exports to Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, NZ, the UK and Canada.

About

We believe making wine is a pretty simple deed, if you just purely follow nature and work with it. But just because something is simple doesn’t mean you should not pay attention.Our family motto is “by virtue, I grow” - we don’t want to be fashionable,we just want to see what is possible. Rooted in the love for our earth, our passion is to make wines that go down easy for how scarce they are.
We were bred into wine. Firstly, of our birth place in the Hunter Valley, and now, home is McLaren Vale after Mum & Dad acquired their first patch here in 1980. Since then, together, we have been able to group a selection of vineyards spread across this wonderful region between hills & sea, under our own family estate. In 2021, we celebrate our 10th year and are certified Carbon Neutral as of February 1st. Now, more than ever, we believe regenerative agriculture is our guiding philosophy. It is a dynamic holistic system which is down to earth, but also futurist. Minimal input focussed, not process or market driven. This way of farming is a struggle. For us, this brings tension to our wine. Then, the way this releases in the glass is exciting, truly showing vineyard & variety expression.

Specialities

Cellar Door

Information

Originally Willunga butcher’s shop built in the 1860s, our cellar door still retains its local slate flooring and limestone walls. We share this space with cool café/providore next door, de Rose Kitchen. So, the designated driver can have a cafe latte while you indulge in the sunny courtyard out back, by the fireplace in winter, or retire to our replete cellar.
A very intimate space, we can only serve up to 14 people at any time. Please contact us prior for a booking if you have a group of 6 or more.
We offer wine tasting, cheese platters or gourmet food from next door, so sit back and relax with our wines by the glass after grazing at the Farmers Market and perusing the local shops. We also provide bikes for hire if you fancy a ride up the famous old Willunga Hill or down the Shiraz Rail Trail!
We are open every day from 11am to 4pm; other times by appointment only.
Contact us for private tastings, function enquiries, vineyard tours & group bookings, via email cellardoor@hitherandyon.com.au or call (08) 8556 2082.
