Autumn Quinta Quarterly 2019

Sunday, March 03, 2019

The thing I love most about the wine industry is also the thing that keeps me up at night - the unpredictability and the uncertainty. We are beholden to the weather gods and thinking about rain, hail or shine is probably where we lose most of our sleep! Take, for example, this summer. We endured weeks and weeks of stifling heat and no rain, which seemed as if it would never end. With vintage only weeks away, the team started talking back-up plans in low, concerned tones. Continue reading...

Which varieties do we grow?

Tuesday, February 05, 2019


If you were at a trivia night and had to name as many grape varieties you could, how many do you think you could list? Do you know how many grape varieties there are in total? It would be an amazing (if not improbable) feat to remember all 1,368 varieties listed in the comprehensive bible of ‘Wine Grapes’ by Robinson, Harding & Vouillamoz (2012). Even to narrow it down further to the 130 varieties grown in Australia that James Halliday writes about in ‘Varietal Wines’ (2015) would be quite impressive. Continue reading...

spring quinta quarterly

Thursday, September 06, 2018

With Natasha on maternity leave, the task of writing the front page of our newsletter has been handed to me. I pondered for sometime on a theme before I decided that an update of our new releases would be fitting as we have just bottled several wines from the 2018 vintage. Continue reading...

Winter Quinta Quarterly

Sunday, May 27, 2018

Did you know that by 2020, the word tokay will disappear from Australian wine labels, websites and all marketing material? We won’t even be able to write that Topaque was “previously known as Tokay”. It is already the case for 11 sensitive GIs (Geographical Indicators) that Australian winemakers once used to describe their wine styles, including Port, Sherry, Champagne and Burgundy. Continue reading...
