Larry Cherubino has had a particularly distinguished winemaking career, first at Hardys Tintara, then Houghton, and thereafter as consultant/Flying Winemaker in Australia, NZ, South Africa, the US and Italy. He has developed three ranges: at the top is Cherubino (Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon); next The Yard, single vineyard wines from WA; and at the bottom the Ad Hoc label, all single region wines. The range and quality of his wines is extraordinary, the prices irresistible. The runaway success of the business has seen the accumulation of 120ha of vineyards, the appointment of additional winemakers, and Larry's own appointment as Director of Winemaking for Robert Oatley Vineyards. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Ireland, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, China and NZ.
Larry Cherubino Wines was only established in 2005, but the significant success we’ve achieved is the culmination of more than 20 years’ observation and work, both in Australia and across the major wine-producing regions of the world.
Simplicity in winemaking requires great attention to detail in the vineyard, an uncompromising approach fruit selection and uncomplicated winemaking, all framed by a kind season. The sum of these things lies within each bottle of wine we make.
Larry is renowned for his passionate commitment to maximising wine quality in both vineyard and winery, his state of the art technical knowledge and for having a highly developed understanding of modern wine styles. A graduate of Roseworthy College, Larry has had a distinguished career with BRL Hardy at Tintara in South Australia and then at Houghton in Western Australia, where his wines won hundreds of awards in the highly competitive Australian and International wine show system.
