Ministry of Clouds has been fermenting in our minds over many years. Fortified by our experiences working for some of Australia's renowned wineries namely Mountadam, Wirra Wirra and Woodstock and drawing inspiration from having represented some of the world's finest vintners, Ministry of Clouds was launched on the 1st of September 2012.
We make classic wines that show careful attention to detail, wines that speak of the land, that reveal the essence of the season; wines with perfect ripeness yet showing some tension, restraint and poise complete with crunchy texture, delicate balance and a somewhat modest build.
Drawing upon our wine industry friendships, our reds are sourced from distinguished vineyard sites in McLaren Vale revelling in old vine Shiraz, Mataro, Grenache and complimented by dry grown Blewitt Springs Tempranillo. A crystalline expression of Clare Valley Riesling and a flinty and somewhat wild expression of Tasmanian Chardonnay completes the range.
As a team, we seek to speak with a shared voice, and have traded the safety and security of our previous jobs for the freedom and risk inherent in this, our own (ad)venture.
We control what we can, the rest is chance,
