Sebastiano Brini spoke
no English when he arrived in McLaren Vale from Italy in 1950 with a suitcase and five pounds in his pocket
Like many European immigrants of this time he toiled hard to establish a better life in his new homeland. He worked as a labourer in local vineyards and by 1953 had saved enough money to purchase a property in Blewitt Springs. At the time, two thirds of the property was used to run dairy cows and the other third had established grapevines (Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro), planted by returned serviceman in the late 1940's as part of a soldier settlement scheme.
 Brini Estate

With the help of his family, the property was progressively planted exclusively to grapevines and the varieties now include six blocks of Shiraz planted between 1947 and 1997, three blocks of Grenache planted between 1948 and 1964, Mataro planted in 1997, Merlot planted in 1998, Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1984 and Chenin Blanc planted in 1960. Over the years the vineyard has gained a proud reputation of supplying grapes to some of Australia's finest red wine producers.

In 2000 Sebastiano's sons John and Marcello established Brini Estate Wines to produce small batches of premium quality wines from the vineyard they grew up on. The single vineyard wines embody the regional characteristics of Blewitt Springs, distinguished, rich berry flavoured and elegant.

The Brini Family vineyard is located in the hills north of Blewitt Springs. Blewitt Springs (a sub region of McLaren Vale) is world renowned for its ability to produce outstanding Shiraz and Grenache. At its highest point the vineyard is 200 m above sea level. Being elevated over 120 m above the main McLaren Vale valley floor, the slightly cooler conditions result in more elegant wines as the slower ripening allows more delicate fruit flavours to develop.

The undulating slopes provide good drainage allowing deep root growth and subsequently robust vines that can tolerate long periods of hot dry weather. The vineyard soil type is predominantly sand to sandy loam over clay with vast gravel and ironstone outcrops. The deep extensive root system on the old vines obtains nutrients and elements from the clay and from ironstone, a rare soil structure not readily found in Australian vineyards. This creates wines with unique flavours and characteristics.

Blewitt Springs has a typical rainfall in the range 560mm (22 inches) to 710mm (28 inches) per year. The majority of rain falls in winter with little rain in summer. Summer is typically hot and dry allowing for ideal ripening conditions. Most of the vines on the property were established without irrigation, so they have deep, well established root system. Vines are only marginally irrigated when required from the limited fresh water collected in the four dams on the property.

Quality and innovation
have always been the driving forces behind Peter Dawson and Tim James
The two friends met in Adelaide in 1976 when the Australian wine industry was going through tough times. Peter was a 21 year old science student from Geelong, Victoria, who'd just got his first job in the wine sector as a cellar hand at Thomas Hardy & Sons inner city Mile End winery, where Tim was the production winemaker. They struck up a remarkable friendship that has spanned three decades, and seen them work alongside each other for 20 years at Hardys before moving on in more recent times to new jobs and ventures. They have a collective winemaking experience of more than 60 years and their interest in wine runs much deeper than at career level.
 Dawson James

Peter and Tim have now collaborated on a project that is as much about personal passion as it is about professionalism, Dawson and James Wines. The single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the results of a long held ambition. Peter and Tim's release of a wine has been much anticipated by their peers, who have over the decades benefited from the wisdom and guidance of these two old hands. The pair has represented the wine industry in various roles, including as winemakers, judges, educators, lobbyists and directors. They have both mentored another generation of winemakers who share their relentless search for quality, not just in the vineyard, but in oak, winemaking and bottling.

Peter Dawson and Tim James have a shared love of Australian art, farming, camping and gastronomy, and families and friends whose palates have benefited from their winemaking wisdom. Their association with vignerons Gerald and Sue extends over 16 years and their contribution as grape growers is integral to achieving quality endeavours.

Dawson and James fruit is grown on the Meadowbank vineyard, which is located approximately 60 kms north west of Hobart. Its rugged topography is bounded by the fast flowing, pristine waters of the Derwent river. Property owners Gerald and Sue Ellis established the first plantings in 1974 and the vineyard holds a special place in the history of Tasmanian viticulture.

The late Stephen Hickinbotham was early to recognise the potential of cool climate viticulture on the Meadowbank site, making Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling between 1981 and 1984. Plantings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were first made in 1987.

Vineyard patches selected for Dawson & James wines were planted in 1989 and vine age plays an important part in flavour development and the balance of the fruit. The vineyard site has an elevation of 70 metres above the river level and a north easterly aspect which attracts optimal sunlight to ripen the grapes. Soils range from brown loams to sandy loams over structured clays and sandstone rock. The soils are of a devigorating nature, contributing to balanced growth and good vine structure. Yields are managed to less than 6 tonnes per hectare with Pinot Noir managed to one bunch per shoot.

 Andrew Garrett

Andrew Garrett Wines, established by winemaking entrepreneur Andrew Garrett, is now operated by the greater Cockatoo Ridge group of wineries. Andrew Garrett began his career as a cellar hand in the mid 1970s. As a 26-year-old he launched his own wine label in 1984, and within six years his products and marketing flair had built a business with $23 million of assets, and turning over $12 million a year.

His determination was displayed after a fire in 1988 destroyed his Magill Cellars, and a hailstorm caused nearly $2 million damage to his Yarra Valley vineyards. Restructuring to rebuild the winery's operations, he eventually lost control of his label, and today Andrew Garrett wines are owned and operated by the greater Fosters group.

Today, fruit for the entire Andrew Garrett range, is sourced from selected vineyards, earmarked for their capacity to grow good fruit, crushed and processed back at the wineworks, and fashioned into some of the country's most popular wines.

Overlooking the breathtaking
seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania
The original consortium in 1973 planted 5 hectare of vines consisting mainly of Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. In August 1990, the vineyard was purchased by Fred Peacock - one of Tasmania’s leading viticulturalists. Fred’s priority was to increase Pinot Noir plantings and introduce Sauvignon Blanc and Schonburger (the first commercial plantings in the Southern Hemisphere.) The Riesling vines are now over 30 years old, some of the oldest commercial vines in Tasmania. With Fred’s dedication and passion, the vineyard is now a 7.5 hectare showcase of premium Tasmanian varieties.
 Bream Creek

Marion Bay is steeped with history. The vineyard overlooks where Abel Tasman first landed in 1642, raised the Dutch flag and went ashore to also collect water. Later in 1772 French Navigator Marion du Fresne anchored his ships Mascarin and Castries in what is now known as Marion Bay. Today, the Bream Creek district is a rural area with a small thriving coastal community- well known for its artisans- painters, sculptors, fine furniture makers, jewellers and potters. Central to this inspired environment, Bream Creek Vineyard is an integral part of this mosaic as a unique, quality focused premium wine producer.

Bream Creek Vineyard is planted on a north-east ridge above Marion Bay on the edge of the Tasman Sea. This gently sloping site, coastal location and maritime influence, result in growing conditions that are characterised by long mild seasons to create premium fruit quality. The vineyard enjoys a cool frost free spring, long sunny summer days with sea breezes and an extended autumn ripening period. Surrounded by neighbouring forest and windbreaks, the vineyard is nicely sheltered from strong and cold winds.

Soils are deep and range from brown to black clay loams with a little small stone on the higher ground. Particular attention has been made to match varieties to the different range of soil types within the vineyard. The site features a large dam which is used sparingly for trickle irrigation. All vines are vertical-shoot positioned and trained. They are also hand pruned and picked. Crop yields are very modest with both small berries and quite small bunches. This allows low yields of exceptional cool climate fruit with enhanced varietal characters – perfect for winemaking and the production of truly premium cool climate wines.

Bream Creek wines are hand-crafted to capitalise on the stunning flavours that originate from predominantly old vines. The wines (both red and white) are made to age. Aromatic whites are generally whole-bunch pressed with skin contact creating balance and good structure. Chardonnay goes through partial malolactic fermentation and lees-stirring to create texture and elegance.

The red varieties, particularly Pinot Noir are created utilising traditional methods and on some occasions wild ferments. Wines are matured in carefully selected new and aged French oak. These methods retain delicate flavours with multiple dimensions, palate weight and structure. After years of deliberation at Bream Creek the estate released a Reserve Pinot Noir and it was a stand out from day one! Already a multiple trophy and gold medal winner, 2005 produced near perfect conditions for flowering, fruit-set and ripening. The bouquet is exquisite, and palate shows true finesse.
