Michael Hall Wines, est. 2008, Barossa Valley, Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills
Individual, small batch, elegant wines made with passive interventions and meticulous attention to detail. For wine nerds, like me.
A leap into the unknown
Winemaking was a dream that grew over nearly 20 years,
from summer holidays in provincial France, the London wine bar scene,
to my work in the jewellery trade when much of my time and wages were spent discovering new wines.
Thoughtfully-produced wines, which provoke thought
Now, many years into my life in wine, I think what most appeals to me
are the cultural connections I’ve made, working with talented growers, sharing experiences
with likeminded winemakers and globetrotting cellar hands.
Realising the potential of distinct terroirs
In a model traditional in France and championed in Australia, I am now part of a growing
movement of small batch vintners, without vineyards of our own, but able to collaborate
with talented grape growers and source the finest parcels available for each variety.
Pursuing elegant individuality over bombastic consistency
Having come to wine later than most, not from a dynastic wine family or long Barossan heritage,
I feel unburdened by the Barossa Valley wine identity.
