In 1975, Rolfe Mills, the third generation of his family on the farm, started to plant a series of experimental rows of Vitis Vinifera.
In 1982 Rolfe and his wife Lois planted the first block of vines with the express interest of growing high quality wine and released their first commercial vintage in 1989. The land continues to be farmed by Mills family, together with dedicated long-term staff.
As winegrowers, the team's principal commitment is to the soil. Nurturing a healthly, responsive medium underfoot blinds the vines and the people to their land.
Biodynamic farming and no irrigation help the vine drive energy into its seed and issue raw material that is capable of fostering wines that are true to their place.
