James' Review

This is the venture of Daniel Balzer and Marije van Epenhuijsen, he with a German background, she Dutch. The name of the winery is drawn from the middle names of their two children: Willem (Dutch) and Kurt (German), in each instance reflecting long usage in the two families. Daniel moved into the wine industry in 1998, having already obtained a science degree,working first at Yarra Ridge (including a vintage in Germany) before moving to Gapsted Wines in 2003, then completing his Bachelor of Wine Science at CSU the following year. Seven years were given over to contract winemaking for smaller producers, and it was inevitable that sooner or later they would start making wine for their own brand. They currently lease a vineyard in Beechworth, and buy select parcels of fruit. Beechworth is the region they know and love best, the plan being to buy land and establish their own vineyard and winery. The quality of the wines made to date suggests it should succeed.
