James' Review

Tom and Sally Belford have worked full-time for vineyards and wineries in the cooler hilly parts of NSW, Macedon Ranges and Heathcote, and more recently in the Yarra Valley, where Tom is a winemaker at Sticks. Along the way they also managed to spend 15 months in France, dividing their time between Champagne, Beaujolais, Provence, Cahors and Sauternes. In 2010 they decided to 'make a little wine for the hell of it', and purchased shiraz from the Yarraland Vineyard at Chirnside Park. It comes as close to natural wine as is possible, with whole bunches in an open fermenter, no crushing or destemming , no pigeage or pumping over, and no yeast. The wines are sold by mail list via tomeb@iprimus.com.au and in a few bottle shops and restaurants in the Yarra Valley and Melbourne. Exports to the UK and Norway.
