History has shown a rivalry between French domination of wine making and the rest of the world. Australian wine has won an international reputation for quality and value and over time Australian wines have taken key international awards, competing favorably against longer-established wine industries. It has taken many years from the first plantings in 1838 for South Australia to make its mark on the world stage.

As history tells us French domination came to an end at the battle of Waterloo Napoleon was finally defeated in 1815 by the "Duke of Wellington" an English commander who won this famous victory.

They say ' History Always Repeats Itself '

' To take wine into your mouth is to savor a droplet of human history, for every glass has a past that reflects upon the present, what is it that we all see for everyone it's different, but one thing we can all agree wine shares complexity and life. Fruitful when young maturity comes with age, lay it down to rest and let history be made. '
