Tasmanian-born James Broinowski completed his Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology degree at the University of Adelaide in 2013. He was faced with the same problem as many other young graduates wanting to strike out on their own: cash. While others in his predicament may have found the same solution, his is the first wine venture to successfully seek crowd funding. His payback will be an e-real-life access into sharing the journey of the winemaking at Small Island, and some wine at the end. The first year ('15) allowed him to purchase pinot noir from Glengarry in the north of the island, making 2100 bottles of Pinot Noir which won a gold medal at the Royal International Hobart Wine Show '16, and 200 bottles of Rose that sold out in four days at the Taste of Tasmania Festival. In '16 he was able to buy pinot from the highly rated Gala Estate on the east coast, and backup the '15 purchase from Glengarry vineyard with '16. It looks very much like a potential acorn to oak story, for the quality of the wines is seriously good.
