Winery Profile

In 1981 a couple of us met at Roseworthy Agricultural College, when we were studying winemaking and marketing. Ian had just returned from a five month road trip eating and drinking his way around France and Italy . In another part of the world Tod was heading back as well. He had driven his battered old Kombi across the USA and landed a job in a Napa Valley winery. This experience put him on the wine road.

Thirty years later, having become good friends, ‘the boys’ were back in France eating, drinking and visiting wineries. A plan was hatched to get on the road again and come up with their ‘road trip’ wines. They collected David, to help keep The Van on the road, and off they went. And the result?

“We want our wines to be drinkable, balanced and complementary to food. We never release any wine under the ROUTE du VAN label unless we have enjoyed it with a good meal.”
