J&J has been owned and operated by three generations of the Mason family. The estate vineyards are 100% shiraz, certified organic. These are significantly supplemented by contract-grown grapes. It has come a long way since 2004, the first year when some of the estate grapes were vinified to make wine for the private use of the family. Exports to Taiwan and China.
Proudly owned and operated by three generations of family the J&J shiraz vineyard, planted in 1998, is situated on Rivers Lane in the heart of McLaren Vale. The thin limestone rich soils, combined with the influence of a maritime summer create wines of deep colour with elegance, structure, power and complexity.
In 2010 the vineyard commenced the organic certification process and became fully accredited and ACO certified by 2012. At the Rivers Lane vineyard the superb growing conditions that has made McLaren Vale internationally renowned is equalled by J&J’s dedication to organic viticulture, sustainability and a family tradition of excellence. It is a passion that is reflected in the handcrafted small release wines of intense flavour and deep colour. Our wines are sold through our distribution in each capital city in Australia and currently exported to China and Taiwan.
A commitment to organic viticulture wines produced by the J&J family reflect a tradition that starts with passion for the product and respect for the process. By working closely with respected winemaker, Goe DiFabio the resulting wines are true to these beliefs and represent the character and terroir of this world renowned wine region.
