Barramundi comes from the Murray Darling Region of Victoria where two of Australia’s greatest rivers meet. It means our vineyards are supplied with constant water, which is just as well, as there’s hardly any rainfall during the growing season! Just endless days of sunshine! And we’ve got bloody good soil too! Soil that produces rich, ripe berry fruit flavours. It’s a beaut part of the world – especially if you’re a grape.
We first launched Barramundi in Australia in 1990 with two blends in our range and some fancy labels illustrated by iconic Aussie artist Ken Done. Two years later we launched in the UK. By 2003 we had seven wines in the range and were producing 250ml bottles as well – handy for spur-of-the-moment adventures. Strewth! We were growing faster than whiskers on a hairy nosed wombat.
Today, we’ve ditched our 90s look in favour of fresh branding that captures the real Australia – fun-loving, friendly and full of adventure.
So now if you’ve been busy cooking up a storm , or your mates drop in unexpectedly or you just want to sit back and think of warm, sunny days and a long weekend – crack open a bottle of your favourite Barramundi and celebrate the carefree spirit of Australia.
