The Primrose Path refers to a relaxed life of ease and pleasure. The trick is retaining grace whilst avoiding indulgence. Nowhere seems more suited to this life than in the heart of South Australia’s wine county, where regions are devoted to a culture of food and wine against a backdrop of dazzling natural beauty.
Fruit is sourced exclusively from fourth generation vignerons, the Grigoriou family who are based in the heart of the dry grown vineyards of the Monash Valley. Here the vines are stronger, healthier and simply put, produce exceptional fruit year in and year out.
These well-established vineyards, up to 30 years of age, are lanted in some of Australia’s most fertile soils. At just under two hours from the famed Barossa, the area is rich in nutrients, has a mostly dry climate and receives most of rainfall through Autumn, which is perfect timing. The vineyards have good vigour, so vines are regulated with drip irrigation and planted widely to allow for growth also allowing the air flow to reduce disease pressure and help sustain organic practices.
