'Certainly I’ve always been somewhat of a ‘tree hugger’ so that fits in… I’m very much about showcasing our estate, our vineyards. I don’t want chemicals in my workplace. I work in the vineyard, so I don’t want to be surrounded by chemicals there. But it really took off when I made my first natural wine in 2002. It didn’t take me long to realise that it’s easier to have a natural ferment with grapes that haven’t been bashed around by chemicals all their lives.' Wayne Ahrens, @SmallfryWines, Barossa Valley. Our sustainable #aussiewine#regram this week comes from one of the @barossadirt's leading certified organic & biodynamic producers: Early morning plunge #tempranillo#joven#organicwine#vintage17#barossawine . Suzi and Wayne own two vineyards, one in Eden Valley and the other in Vine Vale. They farm a variety of emerging varietals most of which are 100yr+ vines. Both vineyards are certified grade A biodynamic. They made their first natural wine in 2002 from Eden Valley Shiraz. After many vintages working in wineries across the Barossa from very large to smaller estates they started their own brand in 2006, the character of the vineyard is the hero sensitively handled in the winery, resonating in the wines.
