Quattro Mano and winemaker Chris’ approach is to tread lightly and let the fruit speak. “The hardest thing is to not do anything…”

Can you tell us a little about your winery?

It’s borrowed! Thanks must go to our great mates Trevor and Faye March of Heathvale where we process our fruit. Small and slow. Steady as she goes.

Tell us something about you (or your wine) that we don’t know.

Small batch wines are all basket pressed…including the Riesling!
