Wines for Joanie
Today I had the pleasure of starting an assignment for a new Vineyard called "Wines for Joanie" (http://www.winesforjoanie.com.au)
Prue and Rew O'Shanesy have taken over the business at Kayena.
We threw caution to the wind, left our farm in sunny Queensland and bought a little vineyard in northern Tassie. Before we knew it 2 containers with our life’s belongings and memories, a ute, a car, 2 dogs, a horse and a prissy cat were on their way across the Bass Straight to our new home, Tasmania.
Rew is a viticulturist and we share a love of the land and our vines. Our challenge is to nurture these vines, produce the best grapes we can and let the fruit do the talking.
Farmers are many things but we must be optimists with a little bit of crazy mixed in as no-one can take on mother nature and win every time. And so, here we are making Wines for Joanie, we hope you enjoy drinking them as much as we enjoying growing them.
