Twelftree Wines

In 2010, acclaimed Australian winemaker Michael Twelftree was offered a small plot of 83-year-old Grenache vines in the hills above McLaren Vale. Twelftree Wines is an exclusive collection of six wines handmade in a boutique style. Each wine illustrates purity of fruit, like a food-friendly blend of Grenache and Mataro and a crisp Grenache Rosé, and reflects Twelftree's deliberate, hands-on style.
