The Spirit of Provenance

Welcome to my winemaking journey – the perpetual exploration of unique, high-quality vineyard sites. My aim is to discover and collaborate with different vineyards year to year, or to explore a new and interesting aspect of an already discovered site. With a focus on terroir inspired Rhone varietals and styles, my wines are an interpretation of these vineyard sites, and reflect the essence of their origins, capturing what I call the ‘Spirit of Provenance’.

When my explorations lead to a site of true distinction, the wines produced will be known as a “Pilgrim’s Flag” release. These wines will then become a permanent fixture in my collection, produced on an ongoing basis to express the character of this site as it evolves over time.

All explorers need a base, a spiritual home. Mine is Victoria, Australia, though my exploration goes well beyond. It is a global one – a true journey of discovery around the world.
