Our Story

John and Josephine Quarisa live by the belief that “Passion is Everything”.

Their passion extends far beyond the boundaries of the wine industry, into their home, their family, their hobbies, heritage and through the simplest things associated with everyday life. Laughter and fun are intrinsically mixed with hard work and good times.

2018 Durif
South Australia

Sometimes, the most wonderful creations emerge from random, happy hybrids. Take the cross-pollution of Peloursin and Syrah vines which French botanist Francois Durif discovered. He produced a delicious new grape variety, worthy of his own name: Durif, also known as Petite Sirah. And here begins your journey of discovery: taste the full-bodied, generous and lively flavours, like blackcurrant and plums balanced with spicy toasted integrated oak.

Recent reviews
  • John Quarisa has had a distinguished career as a winemaker spanning over 20 years, working for some of Australia's largest wineries, including McWilliam's, Casella and Nugan Estate. He was also chiefly responsible in 2004 for winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy (Melbourne) and the Stodart Trophy (Adelaide). John and Josephine Quarisa have set up a very successful family business using grapes from various parts of NSW and SA, made in leased space. Production has risen in leaps and bounds, doubtless sustained by the exceptional value for money provided by the wines. Exports include the UK, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong and NZ.
