Lisa’s wine instincts are distilled from her family’s four generations of winemaking in the Hunter Valley. However, true to her rebellious spirit, she curates her ranges unencumbered by geography, choosing the varietals she loves from the most reliable and renowned terroir all across Australia, giving the brand it’s iconic quality. However, Lisa always finish of the winemaking process in the Hunter Valley so she can oversee the final product and always ensure the best possible end result.
Silver Collection is all about easy-drinking aromatic varietals; it’s the perfect combination of exceptional wine regions and the varieties that best grow there. Varietals include Pinot Grigio and Shiraz.
The Platinum Collection is my passion, and the varietals are my favourites that push the boundaries of the more traditional styles and varieties that are expected from the Hunter Valley. I have sourced the finest fruits from several established regions; the wines include Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Gris, Claudius Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Shiraz.
Renaissance in Latin means rebirth – which is why a period of time around the 15th century has this name. I have spent the last two years in my hometown Pokolbin where I created my new outlet Vamp. This has been a time of discovery which allowed me to pursue a totally new era in my winemaking. The Renaissance was a period influenced by the Black Death and a time when the status quo and all aspects of life, art and science were revolutionised. I have named this, my most ‘out there’ range after this important period. It includes varietals I previously would not have touched given their difference, and the extreme attention required in the winery. This is my Renaissance period – a great new direction and inspiration. I hope you come with me x
