Last week on a drive to the Hunter Valley we went to visit Tamburlaine, Australia's largest organic wine producer. Their wines are made exclusively from organic grapes which results in flavours that clearly represent the growing area and eliminate any risk of harmful chemicals.
There is nothing stuffy or pretentious about their cellar door - it is simple, humble and focused on bringing exceptional organic wine to the public. We were greeted with warm smiles and our children were welcomed with colouring in sheets while Dave and I tasted a selection of reds. The gentleman who was looking after us informed me that their wine should stand on it's own merits, the fact that it's organic should't really some into play. And it's true, the wine is wonderful - organic or not.
But there is that huge juicy bonus of knowing that the wine we're drinking is completely free from chemicals and has been produced in a way that nurtures the local environment.
If you're interested in learning more about organic wine, the Tamburlaine website is exceptionally informative.
