Words by Jean-Baptiste Courdesses

 Mount Gambier is a green paradise on the red continent. It's remote location, 5 hours from Melbourne & 4.5 hours from Adelaide, making it a peaceful regional town where forestry, beauty and a very decent 'schnitty' flourish. If you look closely to the landscape, yes you can spot a few pubsbut more importantly you will notice a few monticule on the horizon line. They are volcanoes.

Radiant Rosé - Alessandro Viola

An editor once urged me to avoid the word ‘mouthwatering’. And fair enough.

Navigating Nebbiolo - Architects of Wine

Nebbiolo - a varietal that has equally transfixed and mystified winemakers, growers, and consumers alike. David Caporaletti's passion for Italian varietals and specifically, Nebbiolo, has grown to him searching for better fruit across a range of organic sites within the Clare Valley and the Adelaide Hills to make precise, yet exciting wines under the Architects of Wine label.
