One Degree of Separation
Kick back over world-class local produce at cellar doors celebrating the provenance of sourced ingredients. More than just paying homage to provenance, however, when you enjoy the Great Southern’s best wines, chances are you’ll meet the maker who also might just happen to be the owner of the establishment you’re enjoying. You’ll get more than you bargain for.
Locals are renowned for sharing their knowledge, so when you happen upon one, mine them for information. Get talking and you’ll soon be in on the local lore about what grew where, as well as the provenance and growing season of the fruit used to produce your chosen wine.
The Great Southern is that kind of place: authentic people sharing genuine knowledge; sublime, global-standard wines; and a commitment to the winery experience so you get as close as possible to the source. It’s no wonder locals call the Great Southern wine region paradise on earth.
You’re only ever one degree of separation from your wine source. Real people; real wine; real experiences. The Great Southern puts the real back into reality, and our wine is no exception.
