Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages.

Aglianico del Vulture is a grape that's native to the the foot of Monte Vulture, originally brought to the region by ancient Greeks, it may very well be the oldest style of table wine. Aglianico makes big, full bodied, dry red wines with plenty of tannin and amazing affinity to good food. Grapes are all hand picked and crushed into controlled fermenters, batches are vinified through the action of wild vineyard and ambient winery yeasts, macerated and held on skins over an extended term of forty days and nights for optimal extraction of tannins. Upon completion, parcels are filled to a selection of well seasoned oak for a judicious course of maturation, aimed at taming the tannins while preserving elegance of fruit.
Scarlet red robes. Morello cherries, dark olive and bay leaf nose, plums, meatyness and almond toast. A sensational palate of fawning tannins, wine jube flavours and piquancy of spice. Juicy plums and black bramble berries, sen sen, carob and coke, the richness and generosity make Pipoli the wine of choice for rich meats such as crackling pork, garlic game and lamb.
